Judy Anne Goatham
1944 - 2007
Judy Anne Goatham nee Balliet passed away May 29, 2007 at home in Gardena, California. Judy Anne was born in Perry, Iowa on June 15, 1944 to parents Dean and Helen Balliet and brother, Larry Dean. The Balliet family moved to Nebraska then Minnesota returning frequently to Iowa for visits with family. They moved to Inglewood, California in 1960 where Judy graduated from Inglewood High School with the class of 1962. Upon graduating, Judy began her lifelong career as a legal secretary. On May 16, 1964, she married Brian Frank Goatham at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Inglewood. Judy enjoyed "putting a little pedal to the metal" in Brian's 1958 Corvette; however, what she really wanted was her own toy, so she purchased a race boat. She and Brian spent many enjoyable vacations speeding along at the Colorado River. Judy loved flowers and pampered two cats, "Shiva" a Bengal Leopard and "Duke" an American Short Hair. She was a devoted wife and an accomplished culinary artist and in Brian's own words, "best d_ _ _ cook around". Judy is survived by her husband, Brian; mother, Helen Balliet of Inglewood; brother, Larry Dean Balliet of Playa del Rey; nieces, nephews and great nephew, aunt, uncle and cousins. A funeral service will be held at Pacific Crest Cemetery's Chapel on Wednesday, June 6, 2007 at 2:00 P.M.
