Judy M. (Felt) Fuller

Hornell, NY / Athens, PA

Judy M. (Felt) Fuller – 77 – of Hornell, formerly of Athens, PA was called home Friday evening (December 15, 2023) at St. James Hospital, Hornell, NY, following a long illness.

Born in Sayre, PA on May 23, 1946, she was the daughter of Ralph & Marjorie (Walsh) Felt. They were thrilled to welcome a baby girl after having five lively sons.

Growing up in Athens, Judy was a graduate of Athens High School (Class of 1964). She attended Penn State University.

Judy was a hard worker and dedicated business owner. Spending time with family was most important to Judy. She spent a happy childhood with her parents, brothers, grandparents, and cousins. She was a devoted Aunt to her 13 nieces and nephews. It brought her much joy to spend time with her 3 grandchildren and, most recently, her great-grandson. Judy was a lover of animals, especially her dog Annie, her constant sidekick who brought her much comfort during tough times. She enjoyed baking, reading, sewing, gardening, and decorating for the holidays. Spending the day shopping and having lunch with her daughter was one of Judy’s favorite pastimes.

Judy was a loyal servant of Christ. She served as an active member of her church congregation, most recently, the Sayre Christian Church and the Hornell United Presbyterian Church.

In addition to her beloved parents, Ralph & Marjorie Felt, Judy was preceded in death by her infant brother, Ralph “Butchie” Felt, Jr.; her sister-in-law, Darlene Felt and nephew, Michael Felt; sister-in-law, Phyllis Felt; and her companion of 10 years, Chip Johnston.

    Michele, Sean and family

    So sorry to hear of your loss of your Mother. She was such a wonderful, kind woman. We grew up in each others back yard many years ago. She was also a bridesmaid for our wedding 60 years ago. I’m sure she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family as well as the Felt family.
