Judy Kay Jordan-Probert, age 52, of Lamar, MO died Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at her home after a battle with cancer.

Judy was born July 2, 1961 at St. Louis, MO and was adopted by her loving parents Venson Willy Jordan and Erma Lee (Coles) Jordan.  After graduating from Lamar High School, she went to Kansas City to become a Respiratory Therapist.

Judy married Lee Kenneth “Buddy” Probert on July 2, 2011 at Makapu’u Beach Honolulu, HI. Judy loved to travel and loved Boxers, especially her Boxer, Harley, who would go on long walks with her to the Lamar City Lake. Judy also took loving care of her mother Erma until her death in 2010.

Judy leaves behind her husband “Buddy” of the home, two step-sons, Alex Probert and Grant Probert.

So sorry to hear of Judy's passing. We went to high school together and her brother Randy was my brothers best friend. She was always a kind and thoughtful person. Though I hadn't seen her in years we were always friends. RIP Judy my friend, Enjoy your reunion with your wonderful parents and brother in heaven.

Buddy, I am so sorry for your loss. As everyone has posted Judy was a wonderful person to get to know. I don't think she could ever meet you and not act as if you are good friends. Great that you found each other and you made her life so much fuller. I am sure your life was blessed with her and you will be blessed for standing beside her until the end.

I am so sorry to hear of Judy's passing. We were old time friends when I first moved to Lamar in 1967. Judy and Rhonda Onstott lived down the block and welcomed me as a friend . I last seen Judy yrs ago at Barton Co. Health dept. and we visited for quit some time. She was telling me about caring for her mother. That was Judy "caring, loving and friendly. Prayers to the family for peace and comfort.

Buddy,
It was so great to reconnect with Judy after so many years, and to meet you and your family. Only wish it would have been much sooner. Thank you for such an open welcome to your home.
Your recent path with Judy has been long and difficult. She never showed any worry or fear. We can all learn much from her. Strong people come in all sizes.
The world has lost such a good person and nurse. I'm sure she and Harley are taking a long walk right now.
We all thank you for taking such good care of our friend, as it is said, "In sickness, and in health." I hope for strength and peace in the time that follows.

Judy, you were loved by many and will be dearly missed. Buddy, sorry for your loss. Judy and I graduated from Lamar HS together. We were friends in HS and though the years separated us after graduation, each time we met it was as if time had never parted us. Loved her warm friendly personality! Thank you for taking such good care of her and making her happy.

I am so sorry to hear of Judy's passing. I did not know she was ill. The last time I saw Judy was shortly after she had married and she had a smile on her face from ear to ear. She was very happy. I worked with Judy at BCHD and we shared many laughs together. I also cared for Erma Lee prior to her passing. Thoughts and prayers for her husband and boys to find peace and comfort in their memories.
