Wanda Lee (Sue) Judd

Wanda Lee (Sue) Judd, 84, West Plains, Missouri, passed away at 1:45 a.m., Friday, July 8, 2022, at West Vue Nursing Center.


She was born July 10, 1937, at Brandsville, Missouri, to Joseph Frances and Margaret Belle Crabtree Barnett; she was the last surviving child of Frank and Belle.  On June 30, 1954, she was married at West Plains, to Francis Ruel Judd, who preceded her in death on March 3, 2015; a union of sixty years. She was a wonderful and loving mother, having raised six children while her husband worked on the road for Frisco Railroad.  Mrs. Judd was an excellent seamstress, making most of her children and grandchildren’s clothing.  Her family meals were always a plenty.  You were always welcome to come and share.  Prior to becoming disabled she worked at Angelica Uniform Factory in Mountain View, Missouri as an inspector.  After this time she cared for her grandchildren and was a great influence in their lives.


She will be dearly missed by five children, Margaret Collins, Frank Judd, Marilyn Lair (Michael), James Judd (Kelly) and Kathy Young (Dennis); fourteen grandchildren; sixteen great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Ellen Barnett; special sister-in-law, Louise Judd; niece, Carrie Pope, who was a great caregiver to her; special cousin, Emogene Clevenger, who was more like a sister; and to many nieces, nephews and extended family, she was Aunt Susie.


Her parents, husband, one son, Robert Lee Judd and her siblings, Henry, Mildred, Mary, Curtis, Betty, Jack, Warren, Clifford, Norman and Mike, preceded her in death.


She will be laid to rest with her husband Saturday, July 23, 2022 at 10:00 a.m., at Evergreen Cemetery.  Arrangements under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home. Online condolences may be expressed at
