Judith Eileen Black

September 15, 1942 - September 23, 2015


Judi Black, 73, the #1 of “Two Old Crows”, Wife, Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, and Friend completed a life abundantly well-lived on September 23, 2015. It was sudden, but also not so sudden.  Her health was up and down but her spirit, wit and sense of humour remained heroically steady and intact. She just got on with things.  There were so many aspects of her character to admire; calm, considerate, strong, loving, cheerful stoicism and a wicked sense of humour.

Born in Vancouver September 15, 1942 Judi lived most of her life in Powell River.  She was the first student council President at Max Cameron High School, where she developed her quiet leadership style.  She was exceptionally bright and even more gracious.  All were drawn to her calming disposition and self-confidence. Taking charge, care and responsibility in her personal and work life gave her great pleasure.  She always thought of others before herself.

She left with her bucket list almost completed, she lived life and made every day count. Travelling, reading, boating, cooking, and sewing were some of the things Judi enjoyed.  She loved cooking for, and with friends and family – quarterly “cooking wars” with good friends was always looked forward to. Many weekends and vacations were spent boating on the Changi, reading, prawning and just relaxing.  She took particular pleasure in baking croissants on the boat in the morning filling anchorages up with delicious smells. 

The family extends its most sincere gratitude to Drs Morwood, Hoffert, and May, all the Nurses and Doctors in Emergency,  all the Nurses in the Ambulatory Unit, Kathleen McPhee, Janet and Sarah in Oncology, our  Homecare Nurses, Dr Tinmouth and the nurses at St Joseph’s day surgery, Rozina and staff at Westview Pharmacy, what an incredible support team.

Judi will be incredibly missed by all that knew her; Ian – her husband of 54 years, daughters Dawn and Terry and their combined mob of husbands, children, step children, and grandchildren, and our amazing extended family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, Judi asked for any gifts in her name to benefit:
