Judith Elaine “Judy” Delameter, 73, of Princeton, Missouri, went to be with Jesus on June 20, 2014 at her home south of Princeton. She was born October 31, 1940 in Mill Grove, Missouri, the daughter of Paul Clifford and Mildred Edith (Vanderpool) Arnote. She was united in marriage to her childhood sweetheart, William Jennings Delameter II on May 16, 1957.
Judy is survived by her husband of 57 years, William, of their home; five children, Lynnette (Jeff) Hampshire, of Fostoria, James Kevin Delameter, of Marshall Texas, Dianna (Scott) Herzinger, of Washington Iowa, Jennifer (Doug) Graber, of Bradner, and Carrie (Ken) Elmore, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; three sisters, Jeannine Fair, of Clinton, Missouri, Annie Harvey, of Trenton, Missouri, and Paulette Westerman, of Clever Missouri; two brothers, Larry Arnote, of Harrisonville, Missouri, and Nolan Arnote, of Kansas City, Missouri.
Judy, also known as “Me Maw,” had great love for her nine grandchildren, Kristen, Corey, Zachary, Samantha, Victoria, Blake, Katrina, Michael and Benjamin. She also was blessed to love five great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and grand neices and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Jeffrey Delameter; one brother, Neill Arnote; five sisters, Mary Putnam, MYrna, Janice and Sharol Arnote, and an infant sister; one niece; and one nephew.
After her six children entered school, so did Judy. She worked in numerous elementary schools as a teacher’s aide most of her adult life. She enjoyed reading, sewing, crocheting, singing and serving others. Judy’s strong faith was evident in the way she lived her life.
