SIDNEY - Judy Ann Douglas, 71, of 339 Fifth Ave., passed away at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, at Wilson Memorial Hospital.
She was born Oct. 2, 1941 in Piqua, the daughter of the late Fred and Daisy (Sowers) Gates.
Judy is survived by her three children, Daniel Teel Jr. and wife Diana, of Minster, Michael Teel, of Sidney, and Starlet Douglas, of Ocean Springs, Miss.; three grandchildren, Ciera Perry Alexander and Tesla Marie Perry, both of Ocean Springs, Miss., and Trevor Glenn Elliott, of Jackson Center; a sister, Maude Lorton, of Sidney; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Fred Gates Jr., and Donald Gates; and one sister, Betty Ellis.
Mrs. Douglas had worked at Gilardi Foods for more than 10 years, prior to her decision to stay home and care for her family. She enjoyed flower gardening, butterflies, and was quite the Elvis Presley fan. Most of all, she enjoyed the time that she spent with her family.
She and her sister Maude were inseparable, and her children and grandchildren meant the world to her. She was a wonderful homemaker, loving mother and caring friend, and will be deeply missed.
Funeral services will be conducted Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, at 1 p.m. at Cromes Funeral Home, 302 S. Main Ave., by the Rev. Harold McKnight. Burial will be at Graceland Cemetery in Sidney.
