Judith A. Ward

CLARIDON TOWNSHIP — Judith Ann (Hunt) Ward, age 72, of Claridon Township, Ohio, left her life of giving on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, surrounded by her family.

Judy was a lover of knowledge and taught many students well in her role as an educator. She served as a high school English teacher and guidance counselor at several N.E. Ohio Schools, including Cuyahoga Falls, Ledgemont, Bedford and Berkshire.

Judy loved the arts. She frequented the theater with many of her friends over the years. She loved music of all types and was known for her joy of singing and dancing. An avid traveler, Judy visited some place overseas almost every summer.

A longtime member of the Claridon Congregational Church, she shared in her love for the Lord in various ways. Judy was a 1958 graduate of Cardinal High School; 1962 graduate of Otterbein University (Otterbein College); and received her Master’s Degree from Kent State University.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Edward Ward of Claridon; two sons, Timothy (Elizabeth) Ward of Auburn and Russell “Rusty” (Wendy) Ward of Middlefield; her daughter, Jodie (Jeff) Fritinger of Aurora; seven grandchildren, Kalyn, James, Dakota, Kevin, Sarah, Ryan and Sean; and her sister, Frances (Nick) Frank of Middlefield.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, James and Frances Hunt; and her brother, Gary Hunt.

A Celebration of Life will be held 11 a.m., Monday, Oct. 15th, at RUSSELL FUNERAL SERVICE, 15670 W. High St. (Rt. 87), Middlefield, Ohio. Burial will be at East Claridon Cemetery.
