Judy graduated from David Douglas HS, Portland, OR in 1959. In 1968, she married the love of her life, Gary V. Callahan. They were married for 53 years and spent most of those years in Oak Grove, OR until Gary’s death in 2021.
Judy was a homemaker. She enjoyed camping, fishing, traveling to exotic and not so exotic places with Gary, spending time with her sisters, her Boston Terrier Piggy, but mostly spending time with her kids and grandkids.
Judy leaves behind her children, Gary Callahan II (Deedee), Josh Callahan (Annie) and Serena Hart (John), as well as her sisters Adele Miller and Linda Mehrer. She will be especially missed by her 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her sister Sharron Smith.
