Julia Anna 'Judy' Finger

CLINTON — On September 15, 2022, at the age of 82, Julia Anna “Judy” Finger peacefully passed away with loving family members by her side. She will be forever missed by all who knew and loved her.

Judy was born on June 1, 1940, to Charles E Mearida and Constance Carmen Halsey. Both preceded her in death.

Judy married Jerome “Diz” Finger on December 3, 1960, and had one son, Jeff. Diz has been waiting in Heaven with his dancing shoes ready since April 22, 2009. We are comforted knowing they’re reunited and can dance in the streets of Heaven forever.

Judy was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt who was always there when we needed her. She left her small piece of this world a better place and she touched many lives around her. She had many friends and was a well-loved member of the community of Wapella.

Left to cherish memories are her son, Jeff (Jo) Finger; her sister, Sherry Fryman, all of Wapella; grandchildren: Bryan (Dana White) Finger, of Clinton and Michael Finger, of Waynesville; nieces, Shelley (Jimmy) Holland; Kim (Kevin) Mandrell, Kelley Fryman, and Tina Coppenbarger; nephew: Derek (Beth) Fryman, along with many great nieces and nephews.

The family has entrusted Graceland-Fairlawn Funeral Home with cremation rites. There will be a graveside service conducted on Friday, September 23, at 10 a.m. at Woodlawn Memorial Cemetery, Clinton. Pastor Steve Evans will officiate.

Memorials may be made to Wapella Christian Church. Condolences may be shared with the family at www.gracelandfairlawn.com
