Judy Latcham, 73, of Hamiota, Manitoba, passed away March 8, 2022 with her beloved husband holding her hand.
She was born to the late James and Audrey Brown, November 19, 1948, in Brandon Manitoba.
She met her husband Bob Latcham while working at Behlen in 1975 and married him on October 2nd, 1976, at Trinity United Church. They lived together throughout the years in Alexander, Brandon, and finally settled in Hamiota, enjoying the quiet, small-town life.
Judy is survived by her beloved husband Bob, two children and their partners: Christopher and Dayna Latcham, of Brandon; Chanlie Latcham and Amit Asdhir, of Winnipeg. She is also survived by her two granddaughters, Bradi and Zoey Latcham, who were the absolute light of her life. Along with her sisters Joan and Bill Leathem of Perth Australia, Nancy and Pat Nickle of Steinbach, and Debbie Klym of Rainbow Lake, Alberta; brothers, Ron and Kathy Brown of Brandon, Larry and Jane Brown of Brandon, and Doug Brown and Darcy Zawalsky of Portage la Prairie; Sisters-In-Law Del Brown of Brandon; Brother-In-Law Gary and Karen Latcham of Stony Plains, Alberta; Sister-in-Law Sharon and Peter Smith of Moose Jaw, SK, as well numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Jim and Dale Brown.
Judy was the second born of nine siblings, as such she took great pride in having helped raise her younger siblings. She attended George Fitton Elementary School, McLaren Junior Highschool, Earl Oxford school and Harrison Highschool. She later went back to attend Assiniboine Community College and received a Secretarial diploma. From a young age, she loved to read and write, retaining that love for the entirety of her life. One of the greatest joys of Judy’s life was being a mother to her two children, Chris and Chanlie. She was selfless in raising them, always wanting the best and helping them out in time of need.
When she moved out to Hamiota, she found a new love in painting. She looked forward to her weekly Paint Nights with her friends. Her home is adorned with many of her masterpieces.
Judy was always the happiest when she was surrounded by family and friends. She loved sitting with her neighbors under the tree shade and especially loved having her whole family together for meals. Judy was always taking care of others and treated everyone she met with love and kindness. Judy was immensely proud of her family, especially her two granddaughters, Bradi and Zoey, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
Her faith in the Lord was strong and no matter what happened, her reply was always “God has a plan, do not worry”.
