Judith K. Scholz October 27, 1939 – July 12, 2017


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Judy Scholz, 77, of Roswell, died July 12 at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. She was surrounded by the love and prayers of friends as she was removed from life support earlier in the day, then quietly and peacefully left her earthly troubles behind.
Born and raised in Minnesota, Judy had early musical training that ultimately resulted in her earning a master’s degree and becoming an accomplished musician. Her career as organist and choir director took her to churches in the Midwest and South. She came to Roswell in 1990 to serve as musician for First Presbyterian Church. In 1993, she began as organist for St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, a position she held for more than fifteen years.
Judy lived alone with her beloved dogs until a stroke in 2015 necessitated a move to Casa Maria. She missed her independence and her dogs, and was pleased to know the dogs were living with a friend, who would bring them to Casa Maria to visit her.
Judy’s church family is thankful for all who have helped in her care, especially the staff of Casa Maria. Her music ministry was a blessing to many, and many have blessed her with their ministries of love and care.
A memorial service celebrating her life and mourning her death will be at 10:30 a.m. July 22, at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 2911 N. Main St., Roswell. Lunch will follow in the fellowship hall. Interment in St. Mark’s Memorial Garden will take place at a future date.
