Judith Ann Holt, 70, of Waynesville, Illinois, went to be with her Lord on Thursday February 13, 2020.

 

Born August 10, 1949 in Clinton, Illinois, she was the daughter of Joel and Delores June Edwards [Owens]. She married Kent Holt on May 25, 1968.

 

She worked at Illinois State University in the Office of Residential Life where she retired after 15 years of service. She enjoyed golf, gardening, mornings with her coffee group and spending time with her family. She was a member of the Atlanta Christian Church praise & worship team where her passion for singing could be realized.

 

She is survived by her son Jamison Holt and wife Meggan of Gallatin, TN and Lisa Schillinger and husband Michael Schillinger of Palatine, IL; six grandchildren Alexander (20), Ethan (17), Mason (17), Grant (16), Katherine (13) and Zachary (9).

Judith suffered from a rare and deadly form of brain cancer, glioblastoma. The team of doctors at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL worked tirelessly to give her every opportunity of survival.
