REMEMBERING JUDY

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Remembering, Uncategorized

Judy LaFevra has gone home to be with the Lord. Judy was always optimistic and excited for the Lord. And she was a strong behind-the-scenes supporter for Don in his musical ministry. And she was a detail person!

Some time back Judy had a serious health issue and God pulled her through it with several miracles. She wanted to tell me all about it. She also wanted to share that testimony with the church. Because we knew Judy was a talker, we asked her if we could video the testimony and edit it to a 4-minute testimony. She agreed. By the time the video shoot was completed, she had talked for a half hour. So, we had to cut way more than we saved. When she saw it, she was disappointed. All of that was important, she said. And it was – it was her story. But we had to make it fit our setting. Pastor Adam was stressed about how to edit it, but I was chuckling inside myself. Judy wanted to give God the glory for everything – every detail.

Both Judy and her husband, Don, were great encouragers. Now she has received the ultimate healing and is at peace with God.

What will you remember about Judy LaFevra?

Such a dear friend. I got to know Judy quite well at our Hope group meetings at Eva’s and Betty’s. You’re correct in that she was the wind beneath Don’s wings. It has been a true joy to watch them minister. Judy will be deeply missed by many.

She was always so encouraging to me and supported all the work I did with New Hope. She is much loved and remembered in fondness.

I didn’t know Judy well, but it seemed she ALWAYS had a smile on her face, and her hands were frequently lifted in praise to God. Prayers for Don…
