Gladys “Judy” Mays, age 84, of Houston, TX, formerly of Broken Bow, OK passed from this life July 19, 2021, in Noble, Oklahoma, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on January 10, 1937, to Ed Jewell and Gladys Haney Jewell, in McAlester, Oklahoma.
Judy was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was kind and loving, never having a bad word to say about anyone. Judy would help anyone who needed it and taught her children to be as kind and thoughtful as she was. There was nothing mean spirited, bad, or hateful about her. The family never knew of a person who didn’t love her after meeting her. She was a member of the New Day Church in Houston, TX. She was a mail carrier for 11 years and befriended many of those on her route. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
