Judy C. Buchanan, 74, of Belleview, gained her angel wings on Thanksgiving, Nov. 23. with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren by her side. No more Thanks could be given to replace all the good she has done while here with us. She is now in the arms of her beloved husband Jimmy of 53 years and our precious Lord.

Judy was preceded at her departure by her husband Jimmy Buchanan, father Oscar Smith, mother Georgia Freet, and siblings: Connie Chaffee, Jerry Smith, Shirley Segars, Sue Paletta, Lee Smith, stepson Eddie Buchanan, his wife Sue, along with grandchildren: Eddie Jr, Amber and Crystal.

She leaves behind her children, Frank Buchanan, Valerie (Jon) Taylor and James Wesley (Angela) Buchanan, stepson Jim Buchanan Jr, stepdaughter Kathy Haage, daughters-in-law Valerie Sharpe and Nancy Buchanan, sister Maggie Irwin, grandchildren: Staci (Eli) Manning, Crystal (Adam) Heishman, Deanna Heishman, Angela Buchanan, Jim (Amber) Buchanan III, Sean (Holly) Buchanan, Crystal Haage, Amber (Shawn) Bainbridge, Donald Laughlin, great grandchildren: Jaci, Elli, Audri, Kenzli, Saige, Giovanni, Ryleigh, Jared, Aurora, Maelei, Emma, Kyler, Zaylee, Zoey, Sierra, Brandon, Lennox, Cadence, Shawny, plus a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and many cherished friends.

Judy was loved by everyone for her outgoing spirit, spunky personality, willingness to achieve, and how loving she was with her family, which meant everything to her. She was a homemaker and a stay at home mom. She enjoyed her later years fishing with Jimmy and whoever else climbed in the boat. She enjoyed the holidays and cooking, which will be very much missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Judy and Jimmy together on February 3, 2024 at the Lake Weir Yacht Club at 1:30. All of their family and friends are invited to this location where they both loved spending time out-fishing one another.

Instead of flowers, the family requests any donations be made to the Hospice of Marion County, Florida. They well deserve the same support they gave us and most importantly, the outpouring care of our much loved mother.
