Judy dedicated her life to care of the elderly, most recently as a 15-year employee of the Upshur County Senior Center. She had a deep love and respect for the elderly.

Judy loved traveling and had almost completed her bucket list of visiting 46 of the 50 states.  She loved reading, her flower gardens and gardening and canning, and sitting on her back porch in her rocking chair and watching nature. She loved the warm summer breezes.

Cherish today, tell those you love today for tomorrow is never promised.

In honoring Mrs. Jarrett’s wishes she will be cremated. A memorial service will be announced at a later date, please check the website for the update.
