Keister, Judy Coombs Guiver - Salt Lake City  
1941 ~ 2016 No life experience was complete until Judy sang Happy Birthday to you. She sang it as she lived her incredible life. It was exuberant, unique, purposely off key and lovingly delivered. That's just how she rolled! Sadly, Judy left us June 19th after a third long battle with cancer, yet she gave us that beautiful smile and infectious laugh right to the end. Born in 1941, she lived her entire life in the Holladay/East Bench area. Her early years included working at the family bakery and restaurant (Beau Brummel) started by her parents Al and Margie Coombs. Stricken with polio as a young teen, she was rescued by her four legged pal, Dutch and became an accomplished equestrian. She competed in local horse shows was a member of the Holladay High Riders. After graduating from the U, she married and had two children, Brad and Robyn. A tough divorce pushed her into the business world and she started her own successful wall paper hanging business. A fall from the ladder led her to a career in education, that spanned 16 years, teaching 2nd grade at Academy Park Elementary. In 1994, she married Tom Keister, and together they spent time traveling around the world. In between trips, Judy found time to continue teaching, learned to paint watercolors, participated in several miniature groups, hosted frequent card playing evenings, lunched often with her Leo group and high school pals, worked in her beautiful garden, took care of her mother and still found time to relax and recharge at the family cabin in Brighton. She made friends in an instant and was well loved by all who knew her. She impacted the lives of countless young children, giving them love and a thirst for knowledge. She was the hub of her family, arranging for reunions, cooking special holiday dinners and always having something in the freezer for you to take home. Her calendar was always full, making time for friends, family , travel and creative interests. She felt a connection to the Southwest, to Africa and to Peru loving every moment of experiencing new cultures. And never once, did she complain - challenges were opportunities to learn, grow, love. Life was one big adventure and every event, no matter how small, was a cause for celebration. Judy, you will be missed by your siblings John, Peter and Jane, your husband, your children, your in-laws, your ten grand-children, your great grandchild, your extended family, your numerous friends and the critters who shared your life. Yet we know that you are singing Happy Birthday wherever you are, off key and with gusto. Travel well, Judy.
