Judy Weller (neé Sellwood) 1959 – 2002

19th of September 2002

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our daughter Judy. She was diagnosed with cancer in late February and died on July 31.
As a girl, she, with her great friend Nichola Furlong, were pony-mad and as teenagers the two young blonds on their two grey ponies were a familiar sight around the countryside. After school, in spite of having a great artistic talent, Judy opted to go into farming and went as a student to Balls Pond Farm. She joined the Young Farmers and met David Weller, whom she was later to marry.

Judy was involved in a dreadful accident at the Royal Oak crossroads which shattered her right leg. After three months in traction and some months recuperation she was able to ride and work again.

She married David in 1981 and enrolled as a mature student at Watford College of Art. On completion of her studies she decided to take a further degree course at Corsham College in Wiltshire and they moved to Box, near Bath. Soon after this she began to get pain and swelling in her leg. Cancer was diagnosed and after chemo-therapy failed to halt it, her leg had to be amputated. Her courage throughout was staggering and with Davids unfailing support they built a wonderful life in Box and produced three lovely children. Judys warm and generous nature endeared her to everyone in her village and she involved herself in the PTA and many other activities. She also became a committed Christian and her faith gave her great comfort during the last months of her life. Box church was packed and although her memorial service was sad it was also a joyous celebration of a short life well lived. She will be greatly missed. Rick and Joan Sellwood

In reply to Ivane Pearce although I cannot be certain I think it pretty certain that Judy Weller is the person you knew.

I have been looking for old friends on Facebook and was shocked to read this sad news about Judy. Please confirm that this is Judy who went to Bovingdon Primary School and then on to Kings Langley Secondary School ??
