Judith Laura Heslep went peacefully to rest at BWMC Hospital on March 8, 2018 with her loving husband David Brian Heslep by her side.
Judy was born September 7th, 1948 in Middletown, Connecticut to Ernest and Laura Gardner. She was the eldest sister of Al Gardner, Peter Gardner, Dorothy LaRosa and Rob Gardner. As a girl she was a Girl Scout and enjoyed boating, swimming and above all else, riding horses - a love and passion she continued throughout her life.
She was an accomplished English Hunter/Jumper and Dressage Rider. She was a recognized member of PVDA and USEF. She taught and coached young riders, and was a generous donor to numerous equestrian charities. She also enjoyed boating, fishing and camping with her husband and family. She doted on her labs and a “house wasn’t a home” without a cat.
She earned her Associate’s Degree in June 1968 from Rockland Community College in Suffern New York and was a Registered Nurse, who served her career as a Pediatric and Emergency Room Nurse, in New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and Maryland.
Judy was preceded in death by her Mother Laura (Cann) Gardner, Father Ernest Gardner and her brother Rob Gardner.
She is survived by her loving husband, David; her daughter, Patricia Moore; Stepchildren Benjamin Heslep (Susie), Amanda Heslep-Clark and Christopher Heslep. She was the proud grandmother of Aaron (Kayla), David, Matthew, Brian, Jake and Zach.
Our loving wife, mother and grandmother will be dearly missed. Although we who are left behind will feel the emptiness of her loss the rest of our lives, we take comfort in knowing she lived a life of joy, love and laughter and she is at peace.
