Besides her loving husband Leon Archibald, Judy is survived by her children Kelly (Keith), children Kelcee, Keldon and Russell (great grandchildren) Boehmer; Clark Archibald; Cole (Brandy), children Grayson and Hayden Archibald; Chris, children Tristan and Brooke Archibald; Cory (Amanda), children Owen, Aspen and Baby Archibald; Cary Archibald; her brothers Elroy Tolley and Norman Tolley. Also, Mable Tolley, Marion Tolley and numerous nieces and nephews.
Judy was predeceased by her son, Craig Archibald (1996); her parents Ralph and Vonda Tolley (1998) and her nephew, Mike Tolley (2007).
Judy was born on Dec. 25, 1944 in Lethbridge. She was raised on a farm west of Milk River. Growing up Judy spent her time participating in many different activities including dancing, piano lessons, talent shows, horseback riding, bowling and enjoying the life of a country girl.
After graduating from high school in Milk River, Judy had numerous jobs including a telephone operator for AGT in Lethbridge, and working in Waterton.
On June 4, 1966 Judy married Leon Archibald in the Cardston LDS Temple. Soon after they both attended Utah State University in Logan, Utah. Judy graduated in June, 1971 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education.
Judy and Leon started a family with their only daughter Kelly, in 1970 and continued growing with six sons: Clark, Craig, Cole, Chris, Cory and Cary.
Judy and Leon lived in Pincher Creek for a few years until moving to Fort Macleod in 1974 to begin farming operations with Leon where she spent the rest of her life.
Her church jobs, community involvement and farm wife “duties” kept her on her toes along with busing her children to activities from A to Z. Later in life when farming operations slowed, Judy kept busy with different jobs in Fort Macleod. Throughout her life Judy was never one to turn down the chance or request to bake cookies, pastries, bread and making homemade jam and jelly.
