Obituary

HERNANDEZ
Judith Anne
1940 - 2020

June 12, 2020, age 79, of Glassboro, New Jersey.

Mother to Tony Charen (Nivia), Maria Garcia, Christopher Garcia (Gigi), and Michael Garcia (Karen); Grandmother to Anthony, Noah, Alexandra, Chloe, Maximilian, and the late Matthew, as well as Great Grandmother to Zohara. Judith is also survived by her sister Patricia Hernandez, many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Born in the Spanish Harlem neighborhood of New York City on June 21,1940 to Florence Hernandez, a nurse’s aide and Antonio Hernandez, a musician and chef at the Edison Hotel in New York City, Judith was the eldest of two siblings, Patricia and the late Albert Hernandez.

Judith was an incredibly loving and supportive mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, wife, sister, daughter and friend. Judith graduated high school with honors and was awarded a college scholarship. At the time, she had to sacrifice her college education to help her mother support her family. Later in life, Judith attended a local community college and studied psychology. Judith's hobbies ranged from cooking, gardening, reading coffee house mysteries, writing in her journal that often included prayers for those who were faced with life's challenges, as well as for her children and grandkids. She delighted in playing online games of solitaire and scrabble with family. Judith was artistically gifted and enjoyed sketching and oil painting. Armed with a self-deprecating sense of humor, Judith was always ready to have a good laugh about her past expressions of love, joy, and disappointments.

While raising her family, Judith worked in her community running a city community center. She later took the civil service exam to become a Pennsylvania State Caseworker for the Department of Welfare, from which she officially retired. Thereafter, Judith remained employed for a number of years working part time for an attorney and at a fashion retail store.

Judith left no stone unturned, always sacrificing her needs for the good of her family.

Judith will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

A memorial service is being held at Monti-Rago Funeral Home Inc., 2531-35 So. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148 on Friday, June 26, 2020 beginning at 11 A.M. Service to begin (at Funeral Home) at 12 Noon. Interment will be private.
