Judy Chambers

Judy Chambers, of Issaquah, died peacefully at home, surrounded by family on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.

The daughter of Henry and Della Cable; Judy was born in Hood River, Oregon on September 5, 1946. She was raised in Wapato, Washington and moved to the Seattle area shortly after marrying her husband of 46 years, Tom Chambers, where she worked as a teacher until her second daughter was born.

Judy's gift and passion was caring for others, she was a humanitarian at heart and in practice. She raised three children, volunteered in schools, and eventually worked with at risk youth. After seeing a neighbor in need, Judy and her husband Tom created a trust to provide basic medical supplies to low income Seattle families. For over two decades Judy has volunteered countless hours and traveled to many countries with International Smile Power; and for the last seven years she has led the non-profit in their efforts to improve and sustain dental health and build bridges of friendship around the world. Judy's radiant smile and personality made people feel special and created a warmth that could be felt from thousands of miles away. She touched so many lives, inspiring people with her quiet strength, generous nature, and positive spirit.

Judy was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. She played an active role in many people's lives and created special memories with everyone she invited into her family.

Judy was preceded in death by her husband Tom Chambers and father Henry Cable. She is survived by her mother Della Cable, her sister Jerri Shinn, her children Jolie Lofink, Jana Jiwani, Tom Chambers, Jr., and her six grandchildren.

Judy always had a smile and positive attitude. She was always kind to my children and family, we particularly appreciated spending time with her (and your family) when we had the infamous power outage. We were blessed to know her. Thinking of you all.

Had lots of fun with Judy's husband Tom and her dad Mr. Cable at Wapato High School. Sorry I never knew Judy as a close friend except meeting her at class reunions. I was a classmate of her husband Tom. May God comfort your family as time continues.
