Judy M. Bunce (Adams) ,79, of Warren, PA, passed away peacefully on Friday March 25, 2022, into the loving arms of her Savior, with her loving husband Bill by her side.
Judy was born on February 28, 1943, in Franklin, Pa, the daughter, and youngest of 12 to the late Earl and Mabel (Hause) Adams. She was a 1961 graduate of Rocky Grove High School. After High School, at the age of 18, Judy and Bill were married and she began working for Rocky Grove High School as a secretary to the principal. Judy and Bill soon moved to Warren where they made their home and raised a family. Judy was a stay-at-home mom and watched children for a few school teachers in the county. As her children got older, she worked at Beaty Jr. High School cafeteria, as receptionist for Dr. Morgan and was a personal secretary for Mrs. DeFrees. She later worked at Whirley Industries from where she retired.
Judy and her husband are members of the Grace United Methodist Church where she served on many committees, taught Sunday school, worked in the kitchen preparing meals and sang in the Choir. She was also a volunteer for the Women’s Auxiliary at Warren General Hospital. Judy was creative, thoughtful and loving as was evident in the beautiful home she made for her family and the way she cared for family and friends. Her back yard has always been a sight to behold in the summer months when it is filled with flowers in bloom. Judy loved cooking, baking, welcoming family and friends for a meal, reading, gardening, volunteering and music but was most happy when spending time with her family. Her presence will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew and loved her.
Judy is survived by her loving husband and high school sweetheart, William L. Bunce Jr. to whom she was married to for 60 years; her children, W.
