PEARSON, Judith Ann


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Judy Pearson in Calgary on Sunday, July 23, 2017. She was supported and surrounded by her close family and friends through a 13 year battle with cancer. Judy leaves behind her loving husband and best friend Tim; son Sean (Karen), and their child Payton; loving daughters Jody (Mark), and their children Cameron and Allison, Jackie and Jessica (Jay); her constant companion T2; siblings Gail, Benny (Gabe), Pat (Tom), Bernie (Sharon), Bill (Julie), Susan (Mark), Sandy (Darrel), Cindy (Brad); and numerous nieces, nephews and friends in Alberta and Ontario. Judy was an elementary school teacher in LaSalle, Ontario who touched the lives of many with her incredible personality and unforgettable smile. The family would like to thank the amazing doctors, nurses and staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic and Dulcina Hospice for their compassion and love during Judy’s time there. A Celebration of Judy’s life will be held at the Cochrane Lions Event Center (the lounge of the old Cochrane Curling Club, 109 – 5 Avenue, Cochrane) on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 11:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Tom Baker Cancer Center (Alberta Cancer Foundation, or the Canadian Cancer Society (

    I remember Judy’s laugh and her smile. She was a wonderful, kind person who left us too soon. Her students were so fortunate to have a teacher who added laughter along with rigorous study. Judy touched many lives.

    Sean and Family,

    My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Sean, The posting that was shared on the Colonel Bishop Alumni page was very touching.

    Sending condolences to each and every family member on the passing of Judy. Judy was a teacher at Colonel Bishop and befriended me right from the start to help out in her class as a senior student. After she had Sean, she let me babysit him until I went off to university. After that, she became a nice friend and I enjoyed our cross border shopping and the time she stayed at my place in Toronto. The passage from teacher to friend came so easily. I know she is adored by many and will remain in the hearts of many, including me. My thoughts to all!!

    Sean and family,
    I am so very sad to hear of the passing of Mrs Pearson. She was my grade three teacher at Colonel Bishop Public School. I feel very lucky and blessed to have had her for a teacher. It was her dedication to ensuring an excellent education for her students that lead her to advocate for me to be assessed for dyslexia. I am forever grateful to her, and will fondly remember her as a beautiful, engaging, and fun teacher.
    I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    We both feel the sadness and loss of Judy’s life. She was so kind and loving to all those she was with. She fought long and hard through these years, but she always smiled and made others feel at ease in herr presence. We will miss her and we mourn with you at your great loss. She will be remembered with love.
