Wife, Mom, Grammy, sister, aunt, and friend, Judith Mae Becquet, Kowalsky's love of life didn't come to an end with her death. Judy passed away peacefully on February 5th, 2021 at the age of 71, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy, by living their lives to the fullest. Born and raised in 1950, in Colver, Pennsylvania, she eventually moved south to Georgia in 2004 with her loving husband of 49 years, Frank Kowalsky. Judy was devoted to her 2 children, Stacy Crump and Kelly Jo Kowalsky, and son-in-law Ron Crump. She was a loving Grandmother to Savanah Belcher and Jules Bullard. Judy worked for many years at Laurel Crest Manor in Ebensburg PA, and spent many more years employed in home health in Georgia. She enjoyed helping people and was always up for small talk. Judy was a Jeep enthusiast, collector of antiques, lover of mowing the lawn, and laundry wizard! If you know Judy, you know those last two activities may have actually been her favorite pastimes and no one could have done them better. She loved hiking and camping. She loved a quiet evening with family with a glass of wine in hand. A devoted Roman Catholic, Judy was a member of Holy Family Church in Colver, and later attended her local Catholic church in Snellville, GA. She led by example and persistence. There was never a job too large or too small that she would not tackle. Judy was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jules "Moon" and Charlotte "Honey" Becquet. She is survived by her sisters and brothers: Barbara Whinnie, Bill Becquet, Rosemarie "Ree" Lee, Dave Becquet, and Gary Becquet, and an extremely large and loving extended family. She will be missed every day. Special thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses who took care of her, throughout her illness and to Home Hospice of Georgia who provided invaluable care in her last days. A private family memorial will be held at a later date in Pennsylvania. The family welcomes donations to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers.
