Judy died on Monday, February 11, 2019, following a bravely sustained struggle with cancer. Born in Mauston, WI, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Slater and Hattie Marie Brown Clark. She was a member of a large farming family and developed a love for all creatures and plants in the natural environment. Being an avid gardener with a green thumb, she could grow anything. Judy graduated from Mauston High School and then enlisted in the Air Force and proudly served as a medical corpsman in the Keesler AF Hospital, Biloxi, MS where she met and married her husband of nearly 60 years.
She moved to Camden in 1969 and was a member of Grace Episcopal Church. Judy became a good Gamecock being especially fond of the football program. She enjoyed tennis and her bridge club and did some traveling in the southern hemisphere. But, most of all, she dearly loved her family.
Surviving Judy are her husband, Hurst Adams “Hal” Lefferts; daughters Susan Lefferts Stuckless (Robert) of Camden, SC and Sandra Lefferts Kirby (Phillip) of Garden City, SC; granddaughter, Heather Elaine Stuckless of Columbia, SC; sisters Jean Steiner of Necedah, WI and Mary Alice Carrell (John) of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; brothers William and Richard (Eileen) of Mauston, WI and Sam (Dolly) Clark, of Watertown, WI.
She was predeceased by her sister Betty Clark.
The family would like to express their gratitude for the support of her many friends and the great employees of Kershawhealth Medical Center, Amedisys Home Health, SC Oncology Associates, the Springdale Health Care Center and MSA Hospice for their devoted care. We couldn’t have done without you.
Kornegay Funeral Home, Camden Chapel, is in charge of arrangements.
