Judith Carroll

September 29, 1942 — March 31, 2024

Judith Lee (Dent) Carroll passed away in the night preceding Easter morning.  She lived the entirety of her life in the Greater Cincinnati area and was the daughter of Ralph and Edith (Woodrum) Dent.

Judy was married for 58 years to “the love of her life,” (as she said in her last conversation to her son) William “Bill” Carroll.  She was the mother of two boys, Scott Andrew Carroll and Ryan Oliver Carroll, who tested all her limits growing up, but grew to dote on her because they realized what a prized and special woman they had as a mother.  Both boys added to the family with their wives Jessica (Jasmin) Carroll (Scott) and Catherine “Cathie” (Havron) Carroll (Ryan), whom Judy adored immensely.  In the end, Judy’s dream calling was fulfilled as a grandmother where she was able to do all of the things surrounding a girl’s childhood that a family of two boys never allowed her.  The four granddaughters were Delany Jane “DJ” Carroll (Scott), Cooper Carroll (Scott), Harper Carroll (Ryan), and Ripley Carroll (Ryan).  They felt the full love of a grandmother who was ready and willing at a moments notice to shower the girls with all the love any grandmother could give.

Judy chose to pursue the profession of nursing and spent 43 years working as an industrial nurse for Ford Motor Company at various facilities in the Cincinnati area.  She wore that distinction with pride, but more so, that distinction was just an indication of the woman she was and what her calling in life was.  She delighted in serving others, both in her occupation and in her personal life.  Ever the optimist, she was rarely seen not smiling and she kept tabs on a vast number of friends, co-workers, extended family members, and neighbors.  She visited, checked on, and helped those who were in her circle, not only as a duty as a friend and loved one, but because she truly cared about the people in her life and was willing to give unconditionally to those around her.  The loss of her in so many people’s lives will be felt immensely.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents Ralph and Edith Dent and her first-born son, Scott.  She looked for Scott and her father in nature, especially in the cardinals that came to her window in the kitchen. It was her desire to reunite with them again one day and be encircled in both their loving arms.
