Judith Carole Gephart Kurtz (Judy)
March 23, 1939 – November 2, 2020

Judy passed away so peacefully at her home in Elgin, IL. Her whole family surrounded her, loved on her, kissed her, held her, touched her, and whispered into her ear how much she was loved until her very last breath. Her family gives all the Glory to the Lord and remains thankful for such a peaceful passing into Heaven. Judy trusted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior as a teenager. She was led to the Lord by Rev. John Coleman Adkerson Jr. at a traveling camp meeting in Indiana.
Judy was born in Pittsboro, IN to Ernest Leo Gephart and Nellie Mae Brunton. Graduated from Pittsboro High School, class of 1957. Attended Indiana State University, majoring in music, until she was married to Ned E. Kurtz on June 28, 1959 and decided she’d stay home to rear her family. Happily married for 61 years, she was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her life was dedicated to making sure her family was loved, cared for and nurtured with plenty of affection. She will be greatly missed; however, because she put her trust in Jesus Christ, we are comforted to know she is with Him, in Heaven, for eternity.
Judy is survived by her loving, devoted husband Ned, daughter Kimberly Anne (Keith) Gomez, son Adam Douglas (Holly) Kurtz. Grandsons Brennan Kurtz, Ian Kurtz and Evan Kurtz.
Judy is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Ernest Leo Gephart, Billy Lowell Gephart & James Robert Gephart, sister Betty Jane (Gephart) Feeney. Daughter Karen Lyn Kurtz, son Andrew Stephen Kurtz.
