Obituary for Phebe Jean Judson (Frederick)

Phebe Jean Judson, age 87, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, passed away on February 27, 2020.

Phebe was born on February 23, 1933 to parents Edward and Hattie (Whiteman) Frederick and was raised in Ann Arbor with her three siblings, Howard, Virginia, and Lawrence. She graduated from Ann Arbor High School and later obtained a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University. Following her graduation from EMU, Phebe taught in the Ann Arbor Public Schools for 34 years retiring in 1995.

In 1952 she married Wilfred “Bill” Judson who she knew since she was eight years old. Together they settled in Ann Arbor and raised three children, Roger, Jean, and David. Phebe was a natural care giver- a trait that was even extended to the lambs that her family raised for 4H Club. Often these lambs were nursed back to health in the comfort of Phebe’s kitchen.

Phebe could often be found tending to her garden or baking up something special for her loved ones. Her family has many special memories of Phebe’s Easter pretzels and Christmas cinnamon stars. The family enjoyed many trips together to the family cabin and cottage in Northern Michigan. She and Bill also enjoyed many trips together throughout their retirement. Phebe was an active member of Dixboro United Methodist Church for many years.

Phebe is survived by her loving husband of 67 years, Wilfred “Bill” Judson; her children, Roger (Merita) Judson, Jean (Ronald) Smith, and David (Ann) Judson; four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Hattie Frederick, and her siblings, Howard Frederick, Virginia Bowling, and Lawrence Frederick.

A service to celebrate Phebe’s life will take place at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in her name to Dixboro United Memorial Church, 5221 Church Street, Dixboro, Michigan.
