Judith Dawn Cebeck, following an arduous and brave battle with cancer passed away peacefully on August 26, 2022, surrounded by those she loved. Born in Detroit, Michigan on April 5, 1941, to George and Mary (Grey) Latiff, Judy is survived by her three younger brothers, Sam, Steve (Betsy), and Mark (Sheila). Judy was an adventurous traveler, avid churchgoer, dedicated community volunteer, and adored Mother and Situ, always radiating kindness and warmth.
Judy was an ardent reader and masterful writer. She attended Landon High School and upon graduating pursued higher education at the University of Florida where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Following several years of teaching, and after raising her three children, Judy ambitiously returned to her pursuit of higher education, attending Jacksonville University and attaining her master’s degree. Judy enjoyed a long and rewarding career at Jacksonville Country Day School, initially as a classroom teacher, then a reading specialist, and finally, a curriculum coordinator. Those she taught will remember her catch phrase “Oh My Stars”!
Judy leaves behind a large and loving family, her three children and their father: Lisa Cebeck-Herrold (David), Kevin Cebeck, Mary Barber (John), and Kenneth Cebeck, as well as her three grandchildren, Emily Herrold, Thomas Herrold, and Kendall Farmer and her step-granddaughter Devin Barber. Judy also leaves behind many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
A Memorial Service to celebrate Judy’s life will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, September 17th at Community Presbyterian Church, 150 Sherry Drive, Atlantic Beach, Florida. The service will be officiated by The Reverend David Ball.
Judy’s children wish to thank her cousins and lifelong friends Elsie and Tiffie who traveled this challenging journey with her, always ensuring that she never walked her path alone. Their steadfast devotion is a testament to the power of Love.
