Westbrook, ME—Judith A Clements passed away peacefully on December 27, 2018 at Avita of Stroudwater after a long illness with Alzheimer’s. She was surrounded by her “Avita”

Dean, and Christian. Cumberland is where they made their home for many years. Judy enrolled in Mansfield Academy and received her Cosmetology license and went on to be a hairdresser for 40 years. She worked for Falmouth Hair Fashions early in her career and then decided to start her own business at her home. Judy was ecstatic to have her son Keith build the hair salon for her. Judy had many loyal customers that remained close friends through-out the years.
Judy had many fond memories of all the family gatherings at her home where the grand-
children gathered at the pool in the summertime and celebrated Christmas and the New Year
in the winter. She also looked forward to each Wednesday, spent with her granddaughters
Bethany and Sarah.
Judy was a member of St. Peters Episcopal Church for many years. She worked at the Roast beef Dinner on Saturday evenings and she always made a delicious dessert called “Lush”. The recipe has been passed around too many and served frequently. She was a wonderful cook and took great pride in cooking for others. She also volunteered at the Wayside Soup Kitchen. She sang in the church choir and always said it gave her great pleasure and strengthened her faith. Judy also passed on her musical talents to her Granddaughter Bethany whom she adored, introducing her to the piano, teaching her the notes, and to play.
Judy was close to her friends from school who she kept in touch with throughout her life and also her beloved friend and daughter-in-law Brenda Soper who was there to comfort her until the end. Judy loved to travel and visit her sisters in Connecticut and New Jersey and loved going on cruises with her Sister Donna and brother -in-law Bill.
