The family will receive friends at Mullican Little Funeral Home on Saturday, January 2, 2021 from 10:00AM-Noon for a “come and go” visitation. Judy joined her Lord and Savior on Sunday, December 27, 2020 surrounded by loved ones in her home.
Judy was born to the late JD “Buster” and Anna Mae Redwine on July 8, 1933 in Stamford, Texas. On May 24, 1948, she married the love of her life, the late William “Bill” Steedman. They shared 62 wonderful years together, making millions of memories while spending time with friends and family, square-dancing, fishing, gardening, watching basketball, and playing lots of games along the way. They enjoyed RVing together and made friends across many states throughout their years of adventures. She was also an accomplished operating room nurse after graduating at the top of her nursing class. Judy enjoyed painting and researching medicine/medical procedures, and she always enjoyed talking “shop” with others in the medical field. She loved to study God’s Word and shared many revelations with others because of her gift of teaching. She was a devoted member of First Baptist Church in Savoy. She will be remembered for her quick-wit, love of learning, and the exceptional care she gave to all those around her.
She was preceded in death by her father JD “Buster” Redwine, mother Anna Mae Redwine, husband William “Bill” Steedman, and son Mike Steedman.
