Judy Belton was born Judith Colleen Erickson December 28, 1940 to Alfred and Hildur (Pearson) Erickson in Carney, Michigan and died January 27 at her home in Lakeshore. The family moved to Evanston, IL when Judy was 12. Following high school Judy completed her RN training and a BSN at Wheaton College (IL). As a nurse Judy worked in facilities for geriatric care and for developmental disabilities but her interests lay more in research. Her favorite position was as editor of the Asian issue of the International Journal of Microsurgery while living in Taiwan. Judy lived and worked in a number of different countries where she enjoyed learning in each to be respectful of the cultures. Judy was always interested in helping others and was active in working with refugees, asylum and sanctuary seekers as well as others in crisis and need, often taking persons into her family home.

Judy married Donald Belton in August, 1965; her family was always her primary concern, enjoying the development and accomplishments of her son, Eric Scott (Twila) Belton of Baxter and Karin (Scott) Maida of Minneapolis, and her four grandsons, Gabriel, Declan, Drew and Cole. She excelled at being available and creating a warm and nurturing environment with humor. Judy is also survived by her sister, Muriel (Lud) Golz of Novelty, OH, and preceded in death by her parents and brother, Lyle.

A Meeting for Remembrance (Quaker) will be held Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 10:30AM, followed by a potluck.

Hi Judy. It was my privilege to have met and known you in my really was. I am sorry I didn't reach out sooner in the last years. I will always remember our time during the World Vision Youth Ambassadors Program and I thank you for inviting me to your home in May 1999. It had been wonderful to see you and Don again. I miss you always. Rest in peace. Hyejin Park (WVYA '97 Korea)

So many fond memories of Judy !!! I’m so sorry I didn’t get to see her these last few years... We spent many happy hours together during the Temple Church years...including the trip to Mexico with
the church group...and gatherings at her home with Don and the kids ❤️

Hello to all of you who loved Judy,
We attempted to find the service today as the time and date were advertised. I'm sorry we could not join you but this must have been by design with a desire for privacy.
My memories of Judy are overwhelmingly of a woman with a great intellect and compassion for others. Judy worked to give visiting friends the best she could offer. Her careful preparation for our visits felt as though she valued her guests. Though we did not see her in the last several years we thought of her, and all of her family with love. We're happy to try to honor her by caring for you in this hard time.
