On August 3, 2021, peacefully, after a long illness, at Essie Summers Retirement Home, aged 84 years. Loved mother and mother-in-law of Margaret and David Dorreen (Blenheim), Carolyn and Tony Watson (Kaiapoi), Wendy (deceased), and Nigel Smith, Roger (Christchurch), and Simon and Junko (Dubai, UAE). A much loved grandmother of her 12 grandchildren, and a proud and much loved great-grandmother of her 13 great-grandchildren (and 2 more on the way!). The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the staff of the Essie Summers Hospital Wing for their very kind and compassionate care of Judith. Messages may be addressed to The Family of the late Judith Bach, c/- PO Box 39001, Christchurch 8545. In lieu of flowers donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated, and may be made at the service.
