Judy Beck passed into the presence of her Lord Jesus where there is “fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore (Ps. 16:11)”, peacefully at home on December, 17, 2020. She was 81. Judy was born May 4, 1939 in Waldoboro Maine. She loved Jesus and her eternal hope rested in Him. She was the eighth of nine children born to Percy and Bertha Moody.

She was a graduate of Waldoboro High School and she also received a degree from Fisher Junior College in Boston, MA where she studied to be a medical secretary. After college, she worked in Boston at Brigham & Women’s hospital. Most of her working career was spent as a waitress in various restaurants in Connecticut, but most notably she was a server and dining room manager at Moody’s Diner in Waldoboro. She loved her work, her co-workers and her family legacy.

She was the beloved wife of her husband Robert Arthur Beck for fifty-nine years (sixty this February), mother of four, grandmother of fourteen and great grandmother of twenty-five. While raising her children, she sang in the choir of First Baptist Church in Enfield, CT, taught junior high girl’s Sunday school, and led various Bible studies. She spent a few summers volunteering in the kitchen at Camp Northfield in Northfield, MA. Upon returning to Maine in 1987 she enjoyed being a part of the Schooner Town Cloggers and the Steppin’ Out Cloggers. She and Bob were regular attenders at North Nobleboro Baptist Church. She enjoyed walking the Florida beaches and collecting shells, playing card games, watching the Celtics… even better was watching her grand kids play sports, doing her nails and enjoying the summers on Damariscotta lake by her pool with her kids and grandkids.

As a young woman she was part of the Waldoboro Trio. She and the other members of the trio won a trip to the Ted Mack Radio show in New York City where they competed on the radio. She was featured in episode 5 of a 2013 documentary series produced about the East Coast of the United States. Episode 5 included Maine and a segment featuring Moody’s Diner. This has aired throughout Europe. A story was also written in 2011 for Yankee magazine featuring Judy entitled “How do you keep smiling for 50 years?”

She is predeceased by her mother and father Percy and Bertha Moody, infant daughter Corinne Leora Beck, brothers David, Dewey and Alvah Moody, Sister Nellie Jones, brother-in-laws Bill Jones and Wayne Genthner and sister- in law Dot Moody. She is survived by her beloved husband, Robert Arthur Beck of Nobleboro, daughter Christine Reed and husband Mike of Nobleboro, son Allan Beck and wife Sheri of Nobleboro, son Dan Beck and wife Ruthie of Waldoboro, sister Nancy Genthner of Waldoboro, brother Harvey Moody and wife Jean of Nobleboro, brother Warren Moody of Anderson, SC, sister Debbie Bellows and husband Bob of Waldoboro, sister-in-law Joan Moody of Waldoboro, sister-in-law Dorothy Moody of Framingham, MA, sister-in-law Georgetta Moody of Nobleboro; 14 grandchildren: Bethany Horsman and husband Justin of San Antonio, TX, Leigha Carpenter and husband Jason of Northampton, PA, Zachary Reed and wife Jessica of Milwaukee, WI, Caleb Reed and wife Emma of Menomonee Falls, WI, Hannah Reed and fiancé Andrew Foerster of Nobleboro, Josiah Reed of Nobleboro, Asa Reed of Nobleboro, Levi Reed of Nobleboro, Andrew Beck and wife Alyssa of Union, Aaron Beck and wife Amber of Nobleboro, Allison Ludlow and husband Bobby of Linton Indiana, Nathan Beck and wife Jess of Appleton, Noelle Wells and husband Adam of Elizabethtown, PA, and Noah Beck and wife Alexus of Twentynine Palms, CA.; 25 great grandchildren: Emma, Reagan, Ava, Elsie, Abraham, Asher, Lucas, Gilbert, Piper, Kinsy, Brody, Jameson, Oakley, Adaline, Claire, Mila, James, Aiden, Rileigh, Asher, Anne, Lucy, Simon, Ethan, and Aubree.

So very sorry to learn of Judy’s passing. I so enjoyed our time clogging together all those years ago. She brought a lot of joy into my life. My thought and prayers are with Bob Beck and family.

It was a lucky day for me when I joined the clogging group. I met Judy and we had some great times. She also changed my life when she recommended me for the accounting job at Moodys. It was a great job with a wonderful family. I will always remember Judy who always had great nails and never a hair out of place. Shirley Hamlin
