Judith Elaine Tutor
August 9, 1935 – September 4, 2020
Judith Elaine Tutor (Judy) returned home to be with The Lord on September 4, 2020.
Judy was born in Marysville, Kansas on August 9, 1935 to Armour Hendricks and Lillie (Ellis) Hendricks. She also had 3 brothers and 3 sisters. Judy married Raymond Duane Tutor (known as Duane to his family and Ray with the Hendricks) on May 23, 1959 – they just celebrated 61 beautiful years of marriage. Judy loved her Kansas family, whom she visited with Ray most Memorial Days for many years, honoring and celebrating family members past and present. Judy’s sister Bonnie Humphrey and friends Glen and Ruth Wallenberg were frequently in attendance for these visits.
Judy was a faithful member of First Baptist Church Edmond, Oklahoma, serving on the greeting committee for many years. While her joys in life were most prevalent as a homemaker, she also held administrative jobs professionally. Judy, known best to her beloved family as Mema, was a living example of unconditional love and would always remind her family how much she loved them. She is survived by her husband Duane, her two sons, Larry Tutor and wife Mary of San Antonio, Texas and Bryan Tutor and wife Paulette of Fort Worth, Texas. They have four grandchildren; Adam and Amanda Tutor of San Antonio, Texas and Alexandra and Logan Tutor of Fort Worth, Texas. Mema was always fulfilled by the love of family. Sunday dinners, enjoyed by all, brought Mema happiness and joy serving her famous pot roast, followed the next morning by her heartwarming cheese grits. The legacy lives on in the love and loyalty of her entire family.
