It is with great sadness that the family of Judy Ann Maupin announces her passing after a brief illness on Thursday, December 28, 2017 at the age of 72. Judy grew up in Caruthersville, the daughter of Joseph B. Weddington and Oma M. Weddington (McClendon). She left the area after marrying James LeRoy Maupin, United States Air Force. After 23 years living in Europe and all over the United States, Judy and family returned to the Bootheel area. Judy had an oversized personality and easily made friends wherever she went. Her loving kindness was unsurpassed unless you interrupted her getting whipped into a fury watching Judge Judy. She will be missed by all who were blessed to have known her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Oma Weddington, her husband, James Maupin, three brothers, Jack, Ted, and Melvin Weddington, and one sister, Patsy Alexander.

She is survived by one son, James Michael Maupin of Houston, TX, two daughters, Terri Lynn Pangborn and her husband Rodney of North Pole, AL, Cathy Maupin of Wappapello, MO, one brother, Michael Joe Weddington, of Caruthersville, seven grandchildren, Tov’e Michelle Webster and her husband, Jon of Las Vegas, NV, Sebastian Bailey Maupin of Katy, TX, Cody John Mars of North Pole, AK, Victoria Fall Pangborn of North Pole, AK, Sean James Parker of Wappapello, MO, Rodney Malary Pangborn of North Pole, AK, four great-grandchildren, Hayden, Haylee, Aurora, and Abel, and a number of other relatives and many friends.

Memorial services were held in Caruthersville on January 3, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. in the H.S. Smith Funeral Home Chapel.
