Judy Gerhards, 82, a native of Regensburg, Germany, and has lived in Neosho, Mo., since August 2008, died at 7:35 p.m. on Dec. 11, 2012, at NHC Healthcare in Neosho.

She was born on March 27, 1930, in Regensburg, to Katharina Maria Feil-Roider and Georg Roider who have both preceded her in death.

Judy was married for 24 years to Jack B. Parsley who was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. They moved both internationally and nationally while raising five daughters. She was a lead cook for the cafeteria and the patients at Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo, Texas for, 10 years. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and was always there to help her children when ever needed.

She lived most of her life for her five girls than she did for herself. We will all miss her deeply.

As requested by our mother, services are to remain private.

Forever and always she shall remain in our hearts.
