Judith Emily Pecot passed away peacefully on June 15, 2018, in Chicago, IL.

Judy was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Roy Charles Pecot, Sr. and Islay Ann McKendrick Pecot (both deceased). She grew up with two siblings Jura Pecot Dirmann (deceased) and Roy Pecot Jr (deceased). A graduate of Louisiana State University (LSU), she worked in the Advertising field in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans before moving to Chicago in 1973 to continue to pursue her career in the “big city”.

After many years in Advertising, Judy decided to pursue her calling to help others and became a nurse, spending many years at Rush University Medical Center until her retirement. Beyond her retirement, she continued her calling to care for both family and friends, including her sister in law, the late Anita Samonte Pecot.

Judy is survived by her niece Rachel Dirmann Eden (Bill), nephew Eric Dirmann, her great niece Lillian Grace Eden and great nephew Evan Henry Dirmann. Also, very special to Judy was her two Shih Tzu Bijon puppies, Jake and Rita. They both brought a special comfort and happiness to Judy every day.

Judy’s zest for life was infectious to all that met her. Through her various travels and through both of her careers she had the opportunity to make lifelong friends who she always referred to as her family. Judy was someone who found a lot of her joy in the happiness of others.
