Judy Ann Lee passed away December 28th, 2021 at home in Mount Pleasant, SC. She was born October 29, 1941 to John “Jack” C. and Ruby May Tingey in Brigham City, UT.\n\nBeloved mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed. A genuine, selfless, loving person who will always be cherished and remembered by her bright brown eyes and great big smile, and feisty personality. \n\nJudy was a life-long resident in Salt Lake City, UT for over 50 years until her recent grand adventure across country to Roseville, CA for a short time and then Mount Pleasant, SC where she resided with her daughter and family. \n\nOne of Judy's greatest passions in life was playing golf on Friday nights with her friends, then afterwards finding a bar to hang out at with the gang. She was always so energetic and loved anything that involved games, whether it was playing cards and Farkel all night long or watching episode after episode of Family Feud. You could often find her acting like a kid herself especially when the grandkids were around. She was very talented at so many things and always enjoyed a new challenge, such as joining a bowling league that she loved for many years. \n\nShe grew up in Brigham City and was part of the graduating class of Box Elder High School in 1959. In her senior year she was a club member of a twirling group called the Rockettes and was known to all her friends as "Judy Bug " . After graduation her greatest ambition at the time was to get a helicopter.\n\nJudy was a strong woman and raised her two children, Bradley and Lisa, on her own, often providing for them by working multiple jobs. Eventually Judy's next chapter continued when she found her true love, Steven M. Lee. They were married On September 28, 1979. Together they were business owners of J.G. Lee Excavating and Drilling. Both Judy and Steve loved to travel often. Some of their favorite adventures were exploring every part of Mexico as well as enjoying many different cruises. \n\nAlways thinking about the future, the two of them purchased two properties. The first was a retirement home in Kanab, UT. Surrounded by beautiful red desert and cactus, Judy loved this place! For many years Thanksgiving was always held here. The second home was further south in the town of Yuma, AZ. Together they spent many winters here along with their group of friends that purchased adjacent properties. Memories created here always included many pitchers of drinks, playing darts, and great conversations. \n\nJudy had interesting traits and a few quirks about herself. Every morning she had to have her Honey Nut Cheerios with peaches alongside with her newspaper. She read each story cover to cover daily. Judy had a very sharp, keen mind and at times could be stubborn. If someone had an opinion that differed from hers, she would argue her point until she proved she was right. That or wait till you would give up, the last laugh was always hers. Judy enjoyed sitting on her back porch in the summers and sipping on her vodka tonic which always had to be in her plastic cup. \n\nRecently Judy had the opportunity to spend her last year living with her daughter Lisa and her family in Roseville, CA. She loved watching the hummingbirds fly and was amazed at all the flowers and sunshine. While living there she was blessed with the chance to see and hold her newest great grandchild, Luca.\n\nJudy lived her life with a warm, open heart and was a best friend to all. She had the most fun any one person could have in life. Her love for her family, friends, and dogs will truly be missed. Judy's legacy will continue forever and she will never be forgotten by all those lives whom she touched.\n\nSurvived by her daughter, Lisa (Rick) Carmean; step daughters, Debbie Lee and Dena (Lee) Lee; grandchildren: Vanessa Hendricks, Cassandra Hendricks, Alexandria Hendricks, Nick Carmean, Ashley Hodge, Kailey Carmean; Jesse Knorpp and Alex Knorpp. Great grandchildren, Davyn Satison and Luca Carmean. \n\nPreceded in death by Jack Hunsaker (father), Ruby May Tingey Hunsaker (mother), Margo Shaw (sister), Burt Hunsaker (brother), Steven M. Lee (husband), and Bradley Hendricks (son) \n\nFuneral services will be held on Friday, January 14, at 1:00 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home, 4760 South State Street, Murray, Utah, with a viewing prior from 12:00-12:45 p.m. Interment will follow at Murray City Cemetery, 5600 South Vine Street, Murray.\n\nJudy's celebration of life is welcome for all to join.
