Obituary Judith O’Farrell

By Staff | Mar 16, 2012

Judith (Judy) Anne O’Farrell (Cox), 62, of Ellenton, Fla., formerly of Charles Town, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Mar. 4, 2012 with her devoted husband by her side. Judy was born and raised in Weston, W. Va. and graduated from Lewis County High School.

She was the eldest of six children born to the late Paul and Mary Cox of Weston, W. Va. and was the beloved wife of Thomas Joseph O’Farrell. Judy will forever be remembered by her children, John Arthur Jeffries II of Asheboro, N.C. and Wendy Michelle Burdette-Blankenship of Ranson, step-daughter Jennifer Lynn Fraser and husband Daniel Robert Fraser of Bunker Hill, treasured grandchildren Hunter and Holly Jeffries of Inwood, and Helen and Christian Burdette of Ranson, along with countless other friends and family whom were blessed to know her.

Judy loved spending her time side by side with her husband and spending time with her children, grandchildren and friends. She enjoyed the outdoors and made many cherished memories with her family while camping, boating and fishing and while holding family get-togethers. Judy loved entertaining, crafting, home decorating, making flower arrangements and volunteering her time where needed. Judy’s smile, sense of humor and warm and loving ways will be a void in the lives of her family and friends, but will be held tightly within their hearts until they meet again.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Joetta Parker, of Weston, and her infant granddaughter, Grace Anne Burdette of Martinsburg.

Judy was of Catholic faith and attended St. Francis Xavier Cabrini Catholic Church in Parrish, Fla.

Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service to celebrate her life on Saturday, Mar. 17, at 3 p.m. at Eackles-Spencer, and Norton Funeral Home (www.eackles-spencerfuneralhome.com) in Harpers Ferry, with Father Matthew Rowgh of St. Agnes Catholic Church, of Shepherdstown, officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests all donations be sent to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America at www.ccfa.org.
