Judith Diane (McDowell) Staton

April 6, 1947 ~ May 13, 2022 (age 75)


Judy Staton was born in Middletown, Ohio to parents Marguerite (nee Dihrkop) and Charles McDowell on April 6, 1947. She grew up in Middletown and later attended Miami University where she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. Judy spent twenty-eight years as a loving teacher, with the greater part of her career spent at Talawanda Middle School. 
She had many interests but she was known for her love of animals of all kinds; international travel to Europe and in particular her favorite destination of Poros, Greece; and shopping with a special attention given to furniture and decor. However, her greatest love and deepest devotion was  for her family. She was the greatest mom and her children were her whole world. 
Judy is the beloved wife of Wayne Staton; devoted mother of Joshua (Mindy) Staton and Erica Staton; loving sister of William (Susan) McDowell, James (Ginger) Smith and Cindy (James) Schmit; dear aunt of Trey McDowell and Leslie (Dutch) Fox. 

Judy was the glue of her beloved family and she will be deeply missed. A celebration of Judy’s life will be held on Judy’s farm 10720 Morning Sun, College Corner, Ohio. on Saturday June 4th from 4 pm until 9 pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation
