Judith Ann King was born January 12, 1945 in Worth County, Missouri to Eldon and Mary (Phillips) King. She grew up there and graduated from Grant City School before receiving her Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Education from Northwest Missouri State.
On June 13, 1963 Judy was united in marriage to Galen Wilson. The couple moved to Irwin, Iowa after Judy received her degree and worked as a teacher. In 1978 they moved to Altoona which they have called home since. Judy was very active in fund raising across Iowa, bookkeeping for churches, and working as a waitress for Union 76, Fireside, and later owning Judy's Family Dining with her daughter, Amy.
Judy was an avid reader, enjoyed planning parties, writing, and cooking meals for the family. Mostly she loved spending time with Galen and her family.
Judy is survived by her husband of 48 years, Galen; children, Todd (Julie) Wilson, and Amy (Jason) Campbell; grandchildren, Sam, Nathan, Nina, Nicolai, McKenzie, Lillian, and Holden; siblings, Marvin (Corina) King, Dale (Kathy) King, and Larry King; close friends, John and Deb Booth, and Charles and Joleen Weller; and many nieces, nephews, and friends that became family.
