Just six months following the death of her beloved husband, Judith C. Sweetapple lost her brief but courageous battle with cancer on November 24, 2022. She was born in Burbank, California and was daughter of the late Ivan and Constance (Moga) Johnson.
She leaves behind to mourn, her only son, Neil (Bailey) Sweetapple of Cornwall PE, and three step-daughters, Brenda Knapp (Larry) of Molega Lake NS, Jeannette Holmden (Gary) of Moncton NB, Heather Sweetapple (Peter) of Moncton NB. She is also survived by her brothers, Jay Johnson (late wife Dee) of California and Rodney Johnson (Christy) of Oregon and seven grandchildren - Zach, Jaclyn, Hilary, Chris, Alex, Clara and Summer as well as several nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Don and sister-in-law, Dee Johnson.
Judy had a special place in her heart for animals. Her fur-baby Marley was never too far from Judy’s side as they went everywhere together. Judy was known to love a good estate sale and sharing in her excitement in finding a great deal! She and Don also enjoyed hosting many elaborate dinner parties for all their close friends in Arizona.
Judy’s family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to all of her friends of Sun City West, for helping to care for Judy while she was bravely fighting her illness.
Her family takes comfort in knowing that she spent the last of her precious time with her pride and joy, her son Neil, her daughter-in-law Bailey and her bright light, her new granddaughter Summer.
In keeping with Judy’s wishes, there will be no visitation or service. As expressions of sympathy in Judy’s memory, donations may be made to Canadian Cancer Society or the SPCA.
