Judith Teague Kenyon

Judith Teague Kenyon died peacefully at her home in Sonoma County on Tuesday, August 23, 2011. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend to many.

Judy is survived by her sons, Glenn and his husband Roberto, and Bryon and grandsons Emanuel, Phillip and Patrick. Locally she is survived by her brother Alan and his sons Chuck and Alex. She was preceded in death by her daughter Leslie, her son Rob, her sister Norma Potter and her parents Charles and Marjorie Teague.

Judy was born in Oxnard, CA on March 31, 1040 and raised in Ojai until her father was elected to Congress in 1954. She moved to Washington, D.C., where she attended high school, and later attended the University of Arizona, followed by her adult life in Sonoma County. 

She had a passionate love of horses. She raised Peruvian Paso horses for many years, as well as working as a veterinarian assistant.

Her life was filled with good works large and small. She became well known as a volunteer at the Shelter for Battered Women in Santa Rosa. She was particularly lauded for counseling bereaved individuals and families. She was the friend and ally that many counted on in times of great need. On numerous occasions she was publicly and privately recognized for her work. She was admired for her generosity, intelligence, good judgment, and “salty natured” humor. Most proudly, she was a model of multicultural acceptance.

It was Judy’s wish that there be no services, but to honor her memory contributions can be sent to Sutter VNA Hospice of Santa Rosa, 1110 N. Dutton Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
