Judy was born September 28, 1951 in Enid, to Leonard and Ruth Fuksa, and passed away in her home in Drummond, Oklahoma on June 6, 2020.
Judy was the oldest of two children; however, over the years, her family grew as big as her heart. From her first marriage she was blessed with her daughter. On June 26, 1982, Judy married Jim Diel who brought four more children into her life. Several years later, her family kept getting bigger with grandchildren. Judy was blessed with many that loved her. She was known by many names; a loving wife, mom, stepmom, sister, aunt, mammie, great-mammie, social worker, and caring friend. But no matter what you called her, she would have said at one time or another, “Guardian angel watch over you until I see you again.”
She is survived by her husband, Jimmy Raye Diel, of Drummond; her biological daughter, Makayla Shreck and husband Darrick, of Enid; granddaughter, Elizabeth Booze, of Oklahoma City; Judy’s children through Jim; Casie Brownlee, of Edmond; Kristina Redman, of Edmond; Kimberly Scrogin, of Corning, Arkansas; daughter-in-law Natalie Diel of Navarre, Florida; her sister, Kaye Hudgens, of Enid; nephew Zach Hudgens and wife Tamika, of Enid; niece Melissa Bonniksen and husband Darrol, of Ringwood; grandchildren Cooper, Austin, Garrett, Christopher, Wren, Jace, William, Wesley, Brianna, and Savannah; great-grandson Jarrett; and great-nephews, Ryan and Willliam.
Judy is preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Ruth Fuksa, and her son, MSgt. Justin Diel.
Memorial contributions in Judy’s name may be made to the Drummond Fire Department with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.
