Judith Eve Zamecnik, age 77, succumbed after a lengthy illness to be with the Lord on Monday, November 15, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas.

She was born on January 11, 1944 in Anniston, Alabama to Eve Williams and Major Charles Zamecnik. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in English and Language Arts, and went on to earn her Master's Degree. Her passion in life was teaching English and she taught for 26 years at Robert G. Cole High School in San Antonio, TX. Her students loved her dearly and frequently kept in contact with her over the years. Judi had many hobbies, which included: reading, writing, cooking, traveling, sports and socializing with her many friends. After retirement, Judi found joy in doing volunteer work to help others. Aside from her love of people, she had a great adoration for animals and found homes for many in need. She cherished her two precious dogs Candy and Coco. It gave her great pleasure to feed the deer gathering daily in her backyard. Judi had a very vibrant personality and will be missed by all who knew her. God gets to enjoy her beautiful company now.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Eve Zamecnik and father, Major Charles Zamecnik.

Judi is survived by her sister, June Sharrer; brother, David Zamecnik and his wife Chris; nieces, Shaun Statham and Sara Zamecnik. The family is forever grateful for the close friendship that Judi had with Leticia Villanueva, which lasted 43 years.

Thank you, Judi - Ms. Sylvester to me - for bringing out the best in me. your combination of creative energy and work ethic led this Cole student to a long career as a reporter, a writer, a storyteller, an Emmy-winning TV journalist. You did that, Judi, by recognizing a student´s talent and pushing him. Find your voice, you said. Now write like that voice. Now rewrite and rewrite again until it´s the best you can do. I am indebted to your passion and especially your dedication to bringing out the best in your students. Words matter, you used to say. They can send a message of love. They can show people their common humanity. Thank you for showing me the words and the way, Judi. May you rest in peace and live on in your students, your great legacy on this earth.
