Judith Marie Brooks, age 80, passed away on July 26, 2020. Judy was born in Detroit, MI on June 12, 1940 to Walter & Doris Curtis. Judy is survived by her children: Brett (Christa) Knight, Laurel (John) Knight, Shari (Rich) Wilson and Greg (Chrissy) Baker; 13 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren; her nephew Trevor Curtis and her niece Jamie Pickard. She was preceded in death by her parents; her 1st husband Henry Thomas Knight, her 2nd husband Gerald Lynn Brooks, her daughter Robyn Darish and her brother Dale Curtis. Judy was a foster parent to numerous kids. She used to raise and show Irish Setters. Judy enjoyed bowling, playing cards, crafts, movies and spending time with her family. She was a Stage 4 pancreatic cancer survivor since 2003 and although she had many other health issues through the years, nothing seemed to keep her down for long. Judy treated everyone like family and was always the first one to step up and help in any situation. Many nights were spent staying up late having random conversations with her as she was very well versed in almost anything. She was known to argue to the death to get her point across and try to get you to see things her way. For such a little woman, she certainly commanded respect. Judy was an inspiration to all that knew her and will be deeply missed.
