Leila Lundquist Judd
Our loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, Leila Lundquist Judd, passed away peacefully on Feb. 22, 2010 after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease. She was surrounded by her family. Leila was born July 7, 1929 in Price, Utah to Roland and Mary Lundquist. She graduated from
Kanab High School and attended Utah State Agricultural College where she earned a degree in secondary education. She married her sweetheart, Derrel W. Judd, on June 9, 1953 in the Logan LDS Temple. Leila and Derrel lived in Morgan for 19 years and have lived in Provo for the last 33 years.
Leila taught at Weber High School and worked at the Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City prior to becoming a wife and mother. Leila was an active member of the LDS church and served in leadership positions in the Primary, Relief Society, and Family History organizations. She served many years as an election judge. She was very active in 4-H as a leader and member and earned many awards through her 4-H work. She and her mother made hundreds of beautiful quilts. While pursuing one of her passions, family history, she and Derrel served as directors of the Edgemont Stake Family History Center for 17 years. Leila also helped train family history missionaries at the MTC.
Leila is survived by her husband, Derrel, and their children: Dennis (Carol) Judd, Marjalee (Rodger) Smith, Ralph (Patricia) Judd, Anne Judd, Keith (Chris) Judd, Mary (Jeff) Hill, 21 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, as well as her brothers, Robert (Kathy) Lundquist and Kent (Karen) Lundquist, also many beloved nieces & nephews.
She will be remembered for her love and devotion to her family, her fun sense of humor, and her service to others.
