Judith McKay

January 7, 1952 ~ October 9, 2021 (age 69)


Judith D. McKay, 69, of Chillicothe passed away at her home on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021.

Judy was born on Jan. 7, 1952 the daughter of Robert and Vera (Kohl) Anderson.  She married Eugene L. McKay in Peoria on July 13, 1974.  He preceded her in death on Dec. 5, 1992.

She is survived by her children Amy (Mark) Rosenthal of Deltona, FL, Alycia (Tony) March of Chillicothe, and Joseph (Shannon) McKay of Bloomington; four grandchildren Jessica (Tyler) Utley of Metamora, Shelby (Jack) Dease of Deltona, FL, and Owen and Kylee McKay both of Bloomington; and two brothers, Steven Anderson of Montgomery and Ronald (Mary) Anderson of Brimfield.  She was preceded in death by her parents and husband.  

Judy had a wonderful sense of humor and her contagious laugh would fill a room. She was a natural care taker. After her babies became children, she and her husband cared for foster babies, while awaiting adoption. After Eugene passed, she became a Registered Nurse working for several nursing homes and Methodist Medical Center before retiring.

Funeral service will be held on Sat.
