JUDITH DENA DAVIS
1938 – 2015
The youngest of four children, Judi was born on October 19, 1938 to John Wesley Sr. & Kathleen Stone at Bell California. In 1944 her family moved to Chester in Northern California where Judi was a valuable member of the Chester Community Methodist Church & Choir. She was a member of the school band, a member of Job’s Daughters and a member of Eastern Star at Westwood California. Judi graduated in 1956 from Chester High School and attended Chico State College for one year. She had wanted to be a Veterinarian, but found that women weren’t welcomed into that profession in those years. Judi returned home, bought her 1st horse – named Lil Britches which began her lifelong love affair with animals.
Judi and her life partner of over 40 years – Jack Cutts – lived at Sheep Mountain Ranch. She loved the Ranch – even the hard work. Judi always loved her flower gardens, tended to her chickens with loving care & more than once had livestock in the house overnight. She had many wonderful dogs over the years and her latest dog Sassy will miss her many treats! Judi also enjoyed cooking at the hunting camp in the McEvoy and always had stories to tell about their adventures at camp.
In her spare moments you would find her reading – a favorite hobby, or writing in her diary. She loved books and was a regular at the Fernie Heritage Library where she made many friendships with the staff.
Judi loved having company and made endless pots of tea & coffee. She always took pride in everyone’s accomplishments and always encouraged the kids to pursue their dreams.
Judi had a full and varied life – a life she lived the way she chose. She touched many lives and those memories will live on for generations to come.
Judi was a loving Step Mom, Grandmother & Great Grandmother, Sister and Aunty. She is survived by many loving family & friends. Judi was predeceased by her life partner John (Jack) Cutts, her parents, a sister, a brother & a nephew.
