The family regretfully announces the death of Judy Rock of Mission, B.C. on February 24, 2023, at the age of 74.
She was born on November 14, 1948, the eldest daughter of Jimmy and Pauline Barnes, and was raised on a dairy farm in Pitt Meadows. She attended
school in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, and earned her English degree at Simon Fraser University, where she met her husband, Robert Rock.
Judy was the first Librarian at the Pitt Meadows Library, and followed that with a career in insurance. She worked for many years at Kirby Insurance in Mission, where she considered the clients her friends.
Judy is survived by her husband, Robert, and two sisters: Liz (David) Bruce, and Charlotte (Ken) Wagner, both of Kamloops, and their families. Judy was a very honest person, and treated everyone she met equally. She loved her cats, feeding the birds, crossword puzzles, and TV game shows. She will be missed.
Many thanks to Dr. Sidhu, the wonderful caregivers at Mission Memorial Hospital, and the first responders who tried so hard.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Judy’s favourite charity, the Mission Humane Society. Woodlawn Funeral Home in Mission is in charge of the arrangements. There will be no service.
