Judith Allyne Heller

of Albion, Idaho
Born: July 31, 1937 in Elizabeth New Jersey
Died: October 1, 2012 in Albion, Idaho
Age: 75 years old
Albion, Idaho - A woman of frontier-style endurance, quiet dignity and unfailing humor, Judith Allyne Heller of Albion, Idaho, will be warmly remembered by her loving family and neighbors. Always kind, always compassionate, Judith was a unique woman in every sense of the word. Part Audrey Hepburn, part Minnie Pearl, there was something lovably quirky about Judith.
Judith Heller was born to Ruth Townley and Arthur Edward Poole on July 31, 1937, in Elizabeth, N.J. Later, Judith attended high school in Cranford, N.J., after which she moved to Summit, N.J., where she met and married Ralph T. Heller. Judith was generous with her love and remained devoted to her late husband throughout all the years of their marriage. Passionately committed to leaving things better than she found them, Judith spent 10 years of her life renovating homes in Eugene, Ore. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed antiquing, reading a good book and viewing classic films. Judith took solace in the simple things, garnering joy from merely watching the sunset from her porch. Moments like these were golden to Judith. To her, paradise was a quiet day at home. However, Judith was also a well-respected career woman, winning the admiration and respect of her co-workers and clients in the insurance industry, a career that she built over the course of 40 years. Upon her retirement, Judith moved to Albion, where she remained until her death. Albion spoke of home to Judith like no other place.
Judith leaves behind her sister, Constance Cornog-Robathan (Dave); a brother, Douglas E. Poole (Pat); five nieces and nephews; seven great-nieces and nephews, family members that she loved and enjoyed throughout her life. Judith also leaves behind another family, her Albion family, many devoted friends who loved and cared for her as though she was their own.
A memorial service for Judith will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the LDS Church in Albion, Idaho. To celebrate Judith’s unique spirit, please wear something colorful. As well, should you like to give something in memory of Judith, donations can be made to the Minidoka County Animal Shelter. Cremation services are under the direction of Morrison Funeral Home and Crematory in Rupert.
