Why Are WE Riding?
Judith E. Elliott of Brocton, NY passed peacefully Feb. 3, 2023 after a year long and very brave battle with cancer. She had just turned 83 years old on Jan. 5.
Judy was predeceased by her parents John and Ruth Brillian and her beloved granddaughter Erin. She is survived by her husband Robert Elliott, siblings John, Lanny, and Debbie, daughters Tammy and Tracy (Tim), grandchildren Justin, Kyle (Meghan), Emily, Sean, great grandchildren Alexis, Dominic, Jason, Madison and Logan and great-great granddaughter Dayah.
Judy took great pride in her work as a computer operator, and then later, in retirement, pride in hers and Bob’s property, creating gardens and planting several trees. Also, a great sense of accomplishment was her award-winning knitted creations. She knit every day and was a master at her craft. She could have made tons of money, no doubt, selling these things, but she gave most of them away! This includes so many Buffalo Bills hats she created all last year during her cancer treatment.
Spending time with family was very important to Judy, and she was never too busy to visit, call, go to a park, take a walk (which usually included her beloved dog AmeJane), or go for a drive. She had cultivated so many treasured friendships during her time, both life-long and new and felt so blessed to have each and every one of them in her life.
Judy lived her life by the motto “Others,” which she truly lived by example to all those that knew her by showing her giving and caring nature. Family and friends never visited Judy without going home with something – homemade jam, pie, knitted socks, a hat, scarf, or sweater! Her easy smile and laugh, her warmth and bright blue eyes, will be missed and remembered fondly by all those who came to know this kind and generous woman.
