Obituary: Judith Barton Winn, 78, Scottville.

Judith Barton Winn, who graced our life for 78 years, left this world peacefully on Friday, November 17, 2017.  Judy was born in Mason County, the daughter of Isaac and Margaret (Blossom) Barton on July 11, 1939.  She attended Scottville schools starting in kindergarten and graduating with the Mason County Central class of 1957 and received her teaching certificate, earning a bachelor of arts degree from Central Michigan University in 1961.  Judy worked in the Garden City, Mich. school system before teaching in the overseas school system with the Department of Defense in both Spain and Turkey.  During her life, Judy had many interests including painting, pottery, stained glass, photography, knitting, gardening, and singing in the church choir.  A special thanks to the staff of Ludington Woods for the care of a special person.

Judy will always be loved and remembered by her husband Kirtley Winn of Scottville, daughter Virginia Barton “Ginger” Winn and granddaughter Kimberly Carlson of Marquette.  She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Trudith Ann Barton.  Judith will be missed by all that knew her.
