Judith Karen (Madsen) Painter

October 17, 1947 ~ September 11, 2017 (age 69)

Judith (Judie) passed away peacefully on Monday, September 11th, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born October 17th, 1947 in Provo, Utah to Harold W. Madsen and Pauline Sparks Madsen. She was the oldest of 5 children in the Madsen household. The children included: Judie Painter (Dennis), Robert Madsen (Debbie), Doreen Alder (Steve), Debbie Madsen, and Janet Dahl (Duane). She was preceded in death by her parents and younger sister Debbie. 

She had a strong LDS faith and lived her life as Jesus did. She was modest, unselfish, serving, dedicated to family, organized, clean, courageous, and humble. She never sought fame or stature and tried to instill these qualities in her family. She believed in fairness and justice. She rarely complained of any afflictions she had even though she had more than her fair share of them. She has had a profound impact on her family and her spirit will remain with us forever.

She married Dennis Glen Painter on June 24th, 1966 in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they raised 3 children: Warren Painter (Jamey), Valerie Day (David), and Derrick Painter. They were followed by 8 grandchildren:  Lynnsey Skinner (Matt), Mickenzie Painter, Airyn Sahr (Nathan), Dallin Painter, Landen Day, Madisen Day, Jordyn Day, and Amberlyn Day. Her great grandchildren are: Chevelle, Bentley, Christopher, Matisyn, Jackson, and Chloe. All of whom are the apple of her eye.

A viewing will be held Thursday, September 14th from 6:00- 8:00 P.M. at the Apple Chapel in Grantsville, Utah. There will also be a viewing on Friday, September 15th from 10:00-11:00 A.M. with funeral services following immediately after. Interment will be at the Grantsville City Cemetery.
