Judith “Aunt Judie” Rafferty-Terwilliger, 72

Judith “Aunt Judie” Rafferty-Terwilliger
Judie passed away peacefully on Friday, October 20, 2023 at the
age of 72.
She was born in Barberton, Ohio on January 31, 1951. Judie grew
up on Rockcut Road in Norton, Ohio. She expressed so many fond
memories of the neighborhood and going to school at Sherman
Elementary. She graduated from Norton High School, Class of 1969
and went on to work as a bill collector for the Akron Credit Bureau.
Judie became a stay at home Mom after her daughter, Tyler was
born. She was an amazing mother. She always did what she could for
Norton City Schools, being an active member of the PTA. She was an
avid reader and loved animals (especially her dog, “Wally”). Judie
was known to many as “Aunt Judie”. Aunt Judie took care of and
helped so many kids (adults too). She was always so kind, generous
and threw the most fantastic get-togethers with a lot of food. There
wasn’t any anything she couldn’t do. Such a strong woman, she was
always there when you needed her. If you knew her and asked how
she was, she would always say, “fat and sassy”. She truly touched so

many lives by just being herself. Drink a cup of hot Lipton black tea
with lots of sugar in remembrance of her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Dorothy
Rafferty; brothers, Michael and David Rafferty and nephews, Curtis,
Daniel and Lee Rafferty. She is survived by her husband, David
Terwilliger; daughter, Tyler Terwilliger; niece, Michalene (Kennedy
and Carter) Brown; nephew, Cory (Joshua) Rafferty; great-grandson,
Colten Butler; step-sons, Patrick, Todd and David Terwilliger;
grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other loving family and
friends.
The family would like to thank Summa Hospice for all the care and
support Judie and her family received.
Visitation will be Saturday, October 28, 2023 from 9 to 11 a.m.
with Judie’s funeral service at 11 a.m. at the Campfield-Hickman-
Collier Funeral Home, 566 W. Park Ave., Barberton with Chaplin
