Judith R. Maschak, 59, passed away on April 29, 2021, after a courageous eight and a half year battle with cancer.
Judy was born on December 18, 1961 in Honesdale, PA, to William and Mary Theobald and was one of six children.
On October 29, 1983, she married her husband, Marty and began their life together in Homer City, Pennsylvania where she resided for the remainder of her years. Throughout her life in Homer City, she raised two daughters, Samantha and Madison, and obtained quite the community of friends in her small town.
Judy had a love for travel above so many things and was a travel agent for over 30 years before her illness. Whether it was domestic or international, her and Marty spent many of their days exploring the world together and taking their girls on trips as a family. For those who knew Judy well, her favorite place in the world was Siesta Key, Florida. We like to think that ended up being her heavenly paradise.
She was a very devoted Catholic and lived her life in the most holy of ways. In her battle with Multiple Myeloma, her faith never wavered and she continued to remain strong as God’s toughest soldier. With the sweetest soul on earth, she always kept the most positive attitude in the midst of her trials and never, ever gave up.
She is survived by the love of her life, husband, Marty of 38 years; her two daughters, Samantha Sbardella (Michael) of Armagh, PA and Madison Morris (Gregory) of Midland, TX; her sweet little Italian Greyhound pup, Sammie; her parents, siblings, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was proceeded in death by her oldest sister, Catherine Collins, whom she always referred to as her “first friend.”
