Ratliff, Judith Anne

October 18, 1945 â€"

June 20, 2016

She was born in Albuquerque and was preceded in death by her parents Samuel and Thelma Ratliff and her husband Richard Kuelbs who died in April 2015 of lung cancer. She moved to Dallas in her early twenties and moved from her home in Dallas back to her home in Albuquerque in September 2015.

She fought an incredibly brave and optimistic fight against pancreatic cancer for a year after surviving quadruple bypass surgery as well as other heart procedures â€" why not cancer, too?

She is survived by her sister Rosemary (Ralph); brother Charles (Linda) and estranged brother James; as well as nephews Richard (Yvonne) and Stephen (Sandra); and nieces Kathy (Bob) and Deanna (Chris); sister-in-law Susan Ratcliff (Larry); as well as other relatives.

Judy was an avid reader and an artist not just in stained glass and ceramics, but also in growing beautiful flowers, she loved animals and beauty in all its forms.

Cremation has taken place and at her request, there will be no funeral service. A memorial service for family and friends will take place at a later date. She was loved beyond measure and she will be missed.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Fa-Chyi Lee at UNM Cancer Center, the wonderful caregivers from Comfort Keepers, The Retreat and Hospice of New Mexico, Ayudando Guardians and everyone who prayed for her.
