Judith Faye “Judy” Gaeth, 69 of Pigeon, passed away Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at Courtney Manor in Bad Axe. Born in Pigeon on December 26, 1943, she was the daughter of the late Vern and Irene M. (Haist) Thick and was a graduate of Laker High School. She married John “Jack” Gaeth in Pigeon. Judy loved working as a courier as well as numerous other jobs at the Co-op Elevator in Pigeon and enjoyed all the dear friends she had there. Family was special to her, and she was so proud of her son and daughter-in-law as well as her grandchildren, Cole, Charlie, and Owen. Cole and Judy were big fans of the Detroit Tigers. She would cut out newspaper articles about Cabrera and Verlander and send them to him. She loved spending time babysitting for Charlie and Owen. Judy liked going to the farm where she enjoyed watching the crop harvests-especially the beet harvest. She also loved going to the cottage and sitting by the water which was so peaceful to her. Judy loved making animal sugar cookies for her family and friends, and always decorated them for each holiday occasion. At family get-togethers, Judy always took something special, such as strawberry dessert, chocolate dump cake or stuffed mushrooms. Judy also enjoyed canning pickles. She was a member of Salem United Methodist Church in Pigeon.
