Judith Maxwell Moyer, 79, of Burlington, died Friday, Jan. 13, 2023, at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics in Iowa City.

Born September 9, 1943, she was the daughter of Nina Marie Oge and Cloyce Vinton Maxwell. On Feb. 2, 1963, she married Donald Richard Moyer in Burlington. He died on Oct. 13, 2016.

She worked various positions at G.E. throughout her 30 years there and was the manager of the drafting department when she retired. 

Judith enjoyed her bible study, antiquing, bird watching, and gardening. She loved her cat, T.C., and was a big animal lover. Judith was very honest and independent but loved to have her family around. She had a way of looking at you that could erase your existence but made sure everyone knew they were loved.

Survivors include her two daughters, Michelle (Scott) Jarrard of West Liberty and Kimberly Rich of Washington; son, Shawn (Angela) Moyer of Oskaloosa; nine grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren and one on the way; brother, Richard Maxwell of West Burlington; sister, Karen (Melvin) Ash of Bonaparte.

Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by her son, Curtis Moyer, parents, brothers, Francis "Gene" and Robert "Bill" Maxwell, sister-in-law, Shirley Maxwell, niece, Theresa Leslie, and nephew, Randy Ash.

Cremation has been entrusted to the care of Prugh Crematory.

A graveside service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established for the Des Moines County Humane Society.
