Judy was the definition of a beautiful soul, she had a zest for life and loved each day with a perspective that put being thankful first.

Judy Ann Head was born on July 15, 1950 in Norfolk, Nebraska to the late Rev. Verl and Betty Jean Gunter. She married the love of her life, John Edward Head, on July 15, 1967. In their 55 years of marriage, she had five beautiful children; Brian (Emily) Head, Tammy (Daniel) Brewer, Bradley (Laura) Head, Travis Charles Head (May 15, 1986 – June 3, 1986), and Tiffany (JD) Croley. She has nine grandchildren; Brittany Phagan, Tyler (Savannah) Head, Abigail (Ashton) Prince, Nicholas Head, Travis Head, Victoria Head, Lydia Brewer, Paige Head, and Becca Croley. She has three great-grandchildren; Gentry, John, and Archer.

Living in Germany for seven years sparked a love for traveling the world. During her life in Germany, she loved Volksmarches, and the Christkindlmarkt. Here is where she began her love of collectibles. Beginning with Hummels, Precious Moments, Lladros, and her most favorite, angels. There is not a spot in her home where you won’t find an angel or a cross on the wall or a knickknack sitting on a shelf. Judy enjoyed sewing, embroidery, and scrapbooking. She took thousands of pictures which she would turn into hand made birthday cards for family and friends. She was a historian and loved telling stories about family and watching home movies. She always had a camera in her hand.

Judy had such a love for her family and friends. She was always so welcoming, warm, and friendly and opened her heart to everyone. She knew no stranger. Her love for her family was insurmountable. She rejoiced and celebrated everyone’s joys around her. She was always so proud and your biggest fan. Judy was a person who greeted you with big hugs and a big smile. We will always remember her laugh, her voice, and the songs she always hummed while doing various things. The thing to remember most about Judy, is her incredibly strong faith, love of Jesus, and her passion for her family.

Judy is preceded by her parents, Verl and Betty (Schrader) Gunter; son, Travis Charles Head.
