Judith Cassidy Cole, 81, went to heaven on July 12, 2020. Funeral services are pending until we can all gather to celebrate Judy’s life.
Judy was born on Nov. 3, 1938, to Charles and Wally Cassidy, in St. Paul, Minn. The family settled in Montana and she graduated from Forsyth high school.
Judy married Norris “Mack” Cole in 1962. After a two-year stint in Belem, Brazil, she spent the next years moving wherever Mack’s career with the Bureau of Indian Affairs took them. They retired on the family ranch near Hysham and spent 20 years there before moving back to Billings.
Judy’s English and Journalism teaching career spanned from Billings Central, to Shepherd, and finally Senior High School. She also enjoyed time spent in Helena as a Senator’s wife.
Judy leaves behind her husband of 58 years, Mack, and their three children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild: Margret (JD) Lopez, Carlos and Joshua of Fairfield, Calif.; Cathy (Bryan) Ratzburg, Cole, Kamron and Rebecca of Sunburst; Cass (Deb) Cole, Rachel, Shane, Allyson, Casey and great-grandson, Kashton, of Billings. Sister, Kathleen Bloom; brothers, Tom (Pat) Cassidy and Mike (Lorene) Cassidy also survive Judy.
