Judith Ann (nee Ferrin) Huber, loving wife, mother, and memaw, passed away peacefully in her home after a short battle with cancer, on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at the age of 82. Judy was born November 7, 1938 in Carmel, IN to the late Harold Ferrin and Marthabelle Patterson Ferrin.
She was a 1956 graduate of Carmel High School. While attending Carmel High School, she met her high school sweetheart, and love of her life, the late Bob Huber. Judy and Bob were married in 1958 and shared 62 wonderful years together. Following graduation, Judy attended Dwyer Business School and began a working career. Her jobs included: Secretary to the Executive Secretary of the Indiana State Teachers Association, Claims Director for Carey-Quellhorst Insurance Agency, Insurance Claims for Fessler Insurance Agency and lastly, MJ Insurance, where she retired in 1999.
In 1970 Judy and Bob moved their family from Carmel to a farm in Westfield, IN so Bob could pursue his passion for farming. As a supportive wife, Judy followed along. In 2000, they sold the farm and moved back to Carmel.
Being a mother and grandmother (memaw to her 6 grandsons) was Judy’s true passion. Nothing made her happier than attending their sporting events, presiding over the annual family Thanksgiving foosball tournament, telling them stories at bedtime, and hosting “Camp Memaw” in the summer. The home Judy and Bob built in Carmel was specially designed with a room over the garage large enough to hold beds for all their grandsons, so they could all spend the night together. She also enjoyed several hobbies including reading, needlepointing, and knitting handmade sweaters for family. Judy and Bob loved to travel with friends and family. They visited many countries, enjoying the different cultures and sites around the world.
In addition to her parents, Judy was preceded in death by her brother, Gregg Ferrin.
Judy is survived by her 2 sons, Rich (Jane) and Mike (Michelle); 6 grandsons, Brad, Mark (Darlene), Matt (Liz), Grant, Kyle (Ashley) and Ryan, all of whom will deeply miss spending time with their memaw; and brother, David (Mary Ann) Ferrin.
The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the wonderful care Visiting Angels and Heartland Hospice provided to Judy during her final days.
