Judith "Judy" Ann (Pickett) Sylvester, age 90, of Noblesville, passed away October 28, at Maple Park Village in Westfield after a long battle with dementia. Judy was the daughter of Claude and Fannie Mae (Gatts) Pickett. She was born September 29, 1928.
Judy was gifted with a great sense of humor and she was also a very kind and generous person. Judy was a birthright Quaker and very proud of it. She loved to read, craft and watch the birds and squirrels. When she was younger she was the leader for a Methodist Youth Group, a Sunday school teacher and also a Boy Scout troop leader. Judy was also an animal lover but most of all she was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandma. Judy married Charles Sylvester on April 21,1947. She was a stay at home mom while her children were small. Then the couple started Charlie's Bait, Tackle & Sporting Goods, which she managed while Charlie was working for the NFD and Talbert's Lumber. She had also been employed at Bland's Hardware, as a bookkeeper at G. C. Murphy's, Noblesville Jr. High school and she managed the Blue Ribbon Dairy for several years.
Judy is survived by a son, Michael Sylvester (Michele), Wichita KS; a daughter, Nancy Hernandez (Joe), Noblesville; grandchildren, Steven Sylvester, Mark Hernandez, Jason Hernandez and Emma Sylvester; and two great-grandchildren, Peyton Sylvester and Alex Hernandez. She adored her grandkids; unfortunately, the dementia had taken over her life and she wasn't able to enjoy her great-grandchildren.
Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Sylvester in 2011 after 64 years of marriage; her parents; her only sibling, Robert Pickett; and a grandson, Gregory Hernandez.
