Judi Sholes (Gideon) of Kalamazoo, Michigan passed away August 20, ten days after her 75th birthday. A daughter, mother, and grandmother, she was preceded in death by her parents, Mel and Frances Gideon and her grandmother, Ruth Sutton. She leaves behind her beloved granddaughter, Kayleigh Vaughan, and her daughters Amanta (Allen) Worman and Rebecca (David) Behrens. Also missing Judi are the many people whose lives she nurtured through her kindness (and her cooking)! On the rare occasion that she wasn't being social, she would have music playing and her nose in a book. She had an eye for decorating that was often admired. She leaves behind a legacy of women who share her love of reading, music, and cats.
