Judith Evans Chadwick De Para, 68, loved mother, daughter, and wife, passed on Monday, December 28th with her family by her side after a six-year battle with cancer.

Judith was a loved mother, daughter, and wife. Judith passed after a six-year battle with cancer on Monday, December 28th at the age of 68 with her family by her side.

Judith was born in Montpelier, Vermont on May 25th, 1947 to Robert Green Chadwick and Hazel Gray Evans. Upon the death of her mother in early life, Robert married Anne Marie Teague. Their love prospered and soon after were born Judith's four siblings: Linda, Nancy, Robert Jr., and Joanne. The family later moved from Vermont to Texas where Judith graduated from Clear Creek High School in 1965. She went on to earn a degree in psychology from Southwestern University in 1969 and subsequently earned her Master of Social Work from the University of Houston.

Judith married her loving husband Domingo de Para on August 8th, 1980. Their daughter Katherine came along in 1985 and their son Nathan in 1990. The family grew in their Nassau Bay home and enjoyed traveling and spending summers at their beach house. Judith was known as an advocate of peace, social justice, and equality, but even more so, for her love of reading. She was a leader and organizer of groups and community. Prior to her cancer diagnosis, Judith was an avid volunteer in the Clear Lake community at institutions such as St. Thomas the Episcopal School and the Freeman Branch Library.

Judith will be missed dearly, everyday, by her children, husband, friends, and family. She was preceded in death by her biological mother and father with whom she is now reunited. Her memorial can be visited at Mount Olivet Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Save the Children and Houston Food Bank.
