Judith L. Troxel
April 24, 1944 - June 2, 2015
Judith "Judy" Lorraine McCurry Troxel, 71 of Parma, lost her battle with cancer surrounded by her family at home on June 2, 2015.
Judy was born April 24, 1944, in Caldwell, Idaho, to Ray and Gertrude McCurry. She grew up on a farm in the Dixie area between Notus and Parma, where she had many childhood adventures with her brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and numerous friends. Judy reminisced about crossing the Boise River on horseback to herd cattle, and never really thinking about the fact that she could not swim. She attended Roswell and Parma schools, graduating from Parma High School in 1962. Judy was crowned as the first Old Fort Boise Days Queen. After high school, she worked for the Bank of Idaho in Wilder.
Judy met her husband and love of her life, Robert "Bob" Gene Troxel, on a blind date set up by Bob's cousin in the summer of 1962. They were married on June 1, 1963, in Boise, Idaho. They celebrated 52 years of marriage the day before her death. Shortly after they were married, Bob tried to teach Judy to swim in Cascade Lake behind their cabin in Donnelly. It was decided after she almost drowned them both that maybe she just wasn't a swimmer. They had many good times at the cabin, snowmobiling, fishing, boating, cutting wood, making snow ice cream, and playing cards with friends and family. Judy and Bob loved and nurtured five children in a house that she cherished on an acreage in the Apple Valley area of Parma. Raising five children was chaotic at best, but Judy raised all of their children with patience, unconditional love, and a lot of sweat and tears. Every holiday and celebration was made special by her great love of entertaining.
After the last of their children went off to school, Judy entered the workforce again and drove the van for the Parma Senior Citizens Center, where she made many precious friends. She enjoyed gardening, collecting antiques, baking, reading, genealogy, and spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Judy was so proud of her grandkids and they are left with the legacy of her love. Judy loved being outside, and there are reminders of her everywhere in nature. Within her family, she holds the distinction of being the best cook ever!
Judy is survived by her husband, Bob, of Parma; her five children, Robert (Rhonda LaPierre) of Parma, Neil (Cyndi) of Parma, Joseph "Joe" (Teresa) of Homedale, Ann (Scott) Jacops of Parma, and Lynn (Julie) of Meridian. She is also survived by ten grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, her siblings Richard (Geneva) McCurry, Maizie Cornwell, Evelyn Wyatt, Jeanne (J.C.) Warren, Donna Bonds, and Maxine (Jay) McCamish, and her mother-in-law Geneva "Neva". Judy also leaves behind many nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers James and Emmett, her sister Alta, and her father-in-law, Joseph "Joe".
Memorial services will be held on Monday, June 8, 2015, 11:00 a.m., at Kirkpatrick Memorial Community Church in Parma, under the direction of Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell. Condolences may be shared with the family at www.dakanfuneralchapel.com
