SCHOEN, Judith A., age 84, of Belleville. Beloved wife of the late Jerome Schoen. Loving mother of Mark (Denise) Borawski, Cathy (Steven Morris) Smith, and bonus kids Kim (Hugh) Wall and Keith (Robyn) Schoen. Dear grandmother of Bryan (Christina), Brittany (Derrick), Brandy, Jenn (John), Olivia (Garrett), Matthew (Jonathan), Kelly (Colin) and Jessie (Tyler). Dearest great grandmother of 9. She is also survived by her sister Susan Blasutti and loving nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Evelyn Newman and Joseph Cutter Jr., sister Sandra Maurer and brother-in-law Angelo Blasutti.

Judith Schoen, known affectionately as Judy, left behind a legacy of strength, resilience, and unwavering love. Born on August 7, 1939, in Detroit, MI, Judy passed away on June 2, 2024, in Belleville, MI.

Throughout her life, Judy wore many hats, from her early days as a dedicated cashier at a grocery store to her time spent as a passionate travel agent at AAA. Her work ethic and commitment to helping others was evident in all that she did.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Judy found joy and solace in various interests that enriched her life. She loved the thrill of the casino, the tranquility of tending to her flowers and creating stunning floral arrangements. Traveling and exploring new places captivated her adventurous spirit, while watching the Detroit Tigers brought her joy and excitement (most of the time). It is a good thing for the Tiger organization that Judy was not the owner because everyone would have been fired regularly.  

Spending holidays surrounded by family and friends and creating treasured memories with loved ones meant everything to Judy. Summers at the cottage were filled with laughter and relaxation. Her love for exploring casinos across the country showcased her spirited sense of fun and exploration.  One year her and Jerry took a vacation to Arizona and all the stops in between were based on where they could get a free room at the casino. There were about 25 stops between here and there, so that meant 25 different casinos they got to check out.

Judy's journey was marked by challenges, but she faced them all with grace and determination. In the face of adversity, she embodied resilience and courage, showing unwavering strength even during the toughest of times. She was a single mother of her 2 kids, working full time and never missed a beat.

Judy has lifelong friends. Some of her friendships started before she was even in school. Some others span over 65 years. This is a true testament of Judy’s character and loving personality. She always had time for her friends and family and loved to talk with them on the phone.

In her passing, Judy leaves behind a legacy of kindness, perseverance, resilience, and love, inspiring all who knew her to live each day to the fullest and cherish the moments shared with loved ones. May her spirit live on eternally, bringing comfort and strength to those who hold her dear.

Her cremation will take place at “The Witness Crematory” located inside of Michigan Memorial Funeral Home. The family is requesting attire for visitation should be Detroit Tiger theme.
