Judith Ann Jarboe, 75
Mass of Christian BurialLife Celebration with Prayers Recited at 7:00 p.m.Judith Ann Jarboe, 75 of Piney Point, MD passed away on March 15, 2013 at the Hospice House of St. Mary's, Callaway, MD.
Born August 24, 1937 in Waterloo, New York, she was the only child of the late Ruth Helen Huson and Emory NMN Barrett.
Judy had been a resident of St. Mary's County since about 1961. She retired from Maryland Bank & Trust Company in 1987, after 22 years of service as a Commercial Loan Officer. Judy later worked part-time, for more than ten years, as House Mother at the Marcy House. Her retirement years were spent doting on her grandchildren and providing volunteer services. She and her husband have been active members of the St. George Island Improvement Association (SGIIA) since taking up residence on the island in 1986. She had served as the SGIIA treasurer for the last 25 years. Judy was recognized on several occasions for her dedicated service to the community, which included caretaker for elderly residents, providing secretarial tasks for the local Sheriffs Department and her tireless support of SGIIA activities. In her retirement, she was also able to pursue her avid interest in her family's ancestry and as the family historian she had been able to share her enthusiasm with her family.
Judy had been the center of the family since the day she was born and had always taken great pleasure in making those around her happy. She had an enormous capacity to love and the gift of making anyone she met feel welcome by striking up a conversation and showing a personal interest in their life. Those that knew her fully appreciated her warmth, easy going spirit and love of life. Her desire to put others before self and live by the "Golden Rule" has forever endeared her to all whose lives she has touched. She has been a true blessing to family and friends and will be sorely missed.
Judy is survived by her husband of 39 years, Benedict P. Jarboe (also known as Sam). She also leaves five children, Paul F. Gary, Jr. (Jeanne) of Princess Anne MD, Tamara A. Gary and Christopher S. Gary (Patty) both of Leonardtown MD, William P. Jarboe (Kathy) and Wayne P. Jarboe both of Lewiston ME, four grand children, John R. Lee, IV (Kari), Melissa A. Bean (R. J.), Jessica L. Gary and William P. Jarboe, Jr., and two great grandchildren, Madison Lee and Alexa Jarboe.
