1951 ~ 2023

Celebration of Life

Jun 17, 2023 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Judy Ann Medina was welcomed into heaven by her grandfather, Harry L Young on his birthday May 23, 2023, where we are certain excitement and celebrations occurred with other family and friends.

Judy was born December 27, 1951, to John Peter Michaels and Ruth Beverly Young. She was the 3rd of four daughters, they have been referred to as “The Bayley’s Beauties”. This must be true, since at a young age, Judy caught the eye of Steven J. Medina, at the St Patrick’s Church dance, where they fell madly in love. They were then married in Coalville, Utah on January 22, 1968 and they just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. Shortly after their wedding, they welcomed their firstborn son, Steven Troy, and five years later, they were blessed with a beautiful baby daughter, Krista.

Judy had many jobs, but the ones she liked most were Payless Shoes, Village Inn, Chubby’s Mexican Restaurant, and her last job at England Trucking. Judy loved meeting, talking, and laughing with people of all walks of life, she made everyone feel special and welcome.

Her favorite things to do were league bowling, finding yard sales on the weekends, watching her favorite game shows on TV, and taking trips to Wendover, Nevada, and Malad, Idaho, She was always ready for a good bet. Whether it was a road trip, a car ride through the canyons or an adventure around town, she always enjoyed being out, especially if it was on a motorcycle or in a fast car, unless of course, she could be home around her grandchildren. She loved all of them so much.

Judy lived life Judy’s way, wild and a little bit crazy. You will hear many refer to her as “Crazy Judy”.

Judy will be missed by so many, most especially by her 3 sisters Sherrie, Vickie (Shan) and Janice, her husband Steve, children Troy and Kerri and their sons, Michael & Nicolas, Krista and her children, Kristina, Mariah & Guadalupe, Dominick & her 9 wonderful great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life and love for Judy will be held, Saturday, June 17, 2023, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. at Le Jardin, 1910 E. Dimple Dell Road, (10600 South) Sandy, Utah. A lite dinner will be served. Please come ready to share your favorite Judy story and hear many others.

Such a surreal time for all of us. It doesn't seem possible that you are truly gone. You always had something funny to say. You made me laugh and I tried to return the favor. I will miss "dancing" into your room announcing my entrance loudly and acting silly. You always got a good laugh out of me doing this little routine.

You have so many family members that will miss you. You always had so many friends that you made along the way that will miss you too. You attracted love from so many people along your journey through life. You were special to everyone. You were also a bit stubborn when you wanted to be. Maybe you can work on that now :)

I am so thankful that you are free of pain and discomfort. You were a prisoner in your own body for such a long time. You can now run, talk and go spend time with all of our loved ones that have gone on before. Give Mom, Bill and Daddy a big hug for me.

I am honored to be your little Sister.

The world just lost a beautiful lady. I guess God needed you more. I'm sorry for the loss to your family. We shared some time together with our kids Troy, Krista and Camilla.

- Lisa and Camilla Little

Steve, Troy and Krista I'm very sorry your beloved wife, mother and friend decided to continue the journey that we all will follow one day my heart goes out to you.
Judy was always a very cool mom and Steve the cool dad wrestling with Troy on the couch and Judy yelling Troyyyy great times, Troy and my brother Henrik were really good friends and were always together and as a younger brother I wanted to hang out with them and sometimes they would let me, although it has been many years I've often thought of how your family has been and have never forgotten the memories and this is how I met Judy, she was always very kind and thoughtful of all of our friends that hung out in the cave jammin to Zeppelin, Troyyyyy turn that s..t down, k mom then proceeds to turn up louder. Judy was always
the mother figure that we never had and was always thinking of everyone else making sure Troy and Krista had what they wanted or needed, Judy treated all Troy's friends as family asking if we were hungry, what do you kids want I'm going to taco time? (burrito Supreme) I still remember her voice and will never forget Judy, and your family Troy, love you bro!
Until we meet again love and respect.
Erik Hansen.
