Judith Dearman

October 9, 2010 - September 10, 2010


Dearman, Judith Ann (nee Lorenz)
October 9, 1941 – September 10, 2010
Judy passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at Cowichan District Hospital with her family by her side. She passed peacefully and seamlessly into heaven with her husband and children holding her hand and singing to her.
She leaves behind a family and friends devastated by her loss, but cherishing their many memories of such a wonderful woman. Mourning her so deeply are her loving husband John Dearman, children Mark (Cori) Hilborn, Paul Hilborn, Derek (Jamie) Hilborn, Amy (Frank) Arva and Jessica Dearman (Yasuhiro Koide). Also grandchildren Ben & Danielle Hilborn and Alanda & Joel Hilborn, sisters Alice (Dave) Blackmore, Olive (Peter) Walsh, brother Franz Lorenz and many nieces and nephews. Her little dog Otto also misses her dearly.
Judy was born in Rabbit Lake, Saskatchewan to Ray & Mamie Lorenz. Raised in Lasqueti, Galiano Island, Hope and Quesnel. She and John married in 1984 and were happily enjoying their retirement together, playing tennis and tending their lovely garden.
Judy was a member of the Mill Bay Tennis Club and vice-president of the Warmland Calligraphers. Her many friends there will miss her.
Predeceased by her parents Ray & Mamie Lorenz, brother Paul Lorenz and sister Joan Doerksen.
A memorial service will be held Sunday September 19, 2010 at 1:30 pm at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Duncan. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon in Judy’s memory would be much appreciated. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Hi John & Family

I am so sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. I am glad that is was peaceful and that you were all there with her at the end.
I met Judy at UBC in ’59 when we were neighbours at Anne Westbrook, a dorm for women. I was very pleased to meet he again at the White Rock Tennis club and renew our friendship. As well as playing tennis, Judy was a good and energetic walking companion and loved my passion for the New York Times crossword. I have thought of her often since she moved away and I am sorry we did not keep in touch.
My sincere condolences on the loss of a wonderful woman.
