Thursday, December 16, 2021

Judith “Judy” Marie King-Homler, 78, born July 2, 1943 in Fremont, Ohio, passed away on Monday, Dec. 13, 2021 in the presence of some of her loving family.

She was the daughter of Ereatious King and Hellen Dickey-King, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by husband Clayton Homler, brother John King, sister Mary Jane Bills and grandson Trenton Homler.

She graduated from Greencastle High School in 1962 and attended Ohio State University, double majoring in social work and activities to then earn her degrees.

After school she worked in the surgical department for the U.S. Army.

She leaves behind a daughter, Kristine Homler (Marty) of Genoa, Ohio; sons Justin Homler (April) of Greencastle and Clayton Homler (Valerie) of Reelsville; her loving grandchildren, Crystal Roddy, Gregory Roddy (Elizabeth), Nicole Roddy, Hanah Caceres Martell (Naira), Taylor Strong, Dane Homler, Trevor Homler, Lola Homler, Hallie Homler, Jaxon Homler and Mason Homler; great-grandkids Sean Carter and Lily Roddy; along with sisters Olivia Hagey (Robin) of French Lick and Beth Fauber of Clinton and brother Terry King (Lisa) of Fremont, Ohio; as well as brothers-in-law, John Shaner of Greencastle and Bob Bills of Fillmore; and many nieces and nephews.

Judy was a caring and loving sister, mother and grandmother. She was beyond selfless and known to never know a stranger. She was a hard worker and enjoyed helping those around her.

Judy never let a challenge stand in her way, which is why she was a first-class private in the U.S. Army stationed in Fort Knox, Ky., and Fort Sam Houston, Texas, worked many years in social work and at the Walden Inn, 28 years with Putnam County Comprehensive Services and was extremely involved with Special Olympics that earned her Coach of the Year in 2005.

Free time was spent doing crafts, collecting antiques, playing bingo and gambling with those who would take her out. She cherished spending time with loved ones and watching the Hallmark channel. Judy adored her grandkids and loved every moment she had with them. She was known to have a great sense of humor and put others’ needs before hers.

Earth lost an advocate for those who needed one and Heaven gained the most precious angel. She will be dearly missed but is still an inspiration to us all.

Services will be held this Saturday, Dec. 18 at Bousley Funeral Home with visitation hours 1-3 p.m. and funeral service at 3 p.m., located at 4980 N. Milton St., Coatesville.
