Judy Lynn Gazalski, a resident of Kellyville, passed away Sunday, March 25, 2018 in Tulsa, OK at the age of 76. She was born June 5, 1941 in Lubbock, TX to James Deward Chaney & Vernon Lynn (Raper). She married John V. Gazalski on December 5, 1973 in Fort Worth, Texas.
She was preceded in death by her Father, James Deward Chaney, Mother, Vernon Lynn Raper, brother, Jack Chaney, sister, Julia Chaney, daughter, Donna Shirrell Arnold, and daughter, Shelly Smith.
Judy always loved her children, grand children, husband, friends and family. She especially loved animals and owned a pet store in Tulsa for many years before retiring to Kellyville. She loved Jesus and she was very proud of her four daughters. She loved to paint, play video games but most of all loved her dogs and fish.
Painting made her very happy and she would paint for hours, anything that she thought would look nice in the yard or something she could paint, that you would like, so she could give it away to that person.
She had such a giving heart....and the most important thing she loved to give to someone was a Bible. She knew the best gift of life was to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. "What better way to get to know him & to read the Bible", she would say.
She always loved giving advice...and we know the best advice she would give to those reading this now is ...to "Always put your Trust in the Lord". "Always remember....to love those around you". "Don't take life for granted", "Stay positive." and "Enjoy life, have fun but not to much fun, ha!" I love you!
