Judith A. Richmond

Judith A. Richmond, 80, of Rolling Prairie, Indiana, passed away Thursday, June 30, 2022 in South Bend, IN.


She was born January 31, 1942 in La Porte, IN, the daughter of Frederick Crea and Ruth Schrier Rosentreter.


On March 3, 1962, in La Porte, Judy married James Richmond, who preceded her in death in 2020.


Judith, a lifelong resident of the area, graduated from La Porte High School and attended La Porte Business School. She worked for the Welfare office until her retirement in 2008, then, along with her late husband, James, ran her own business, Judy and Arizona DJ and Karaoke.  Judy was a member of the American Legion Hamon Gray Post 83, La Porte, and attended Harvest Time Church of God. She was an avid shopper who collected Beanie Babies and Crocs.  She loved jewelry and had a large array of unusual Christmas sweaters. Judy loved to garden and take special care of her tomato plants. She really enjoyed spending time with her friends, playing all types of card games weekly. Her most precious moments, though, were spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
