Judy Zaccaria

Judy Ann Zaccaria was born on August 7, 1944 to Helen Sluga and John Costello, in Price, Utah. She is the middle of three girls: Jona, Judy and Barbara. She grew up in Helper, Utah. She attended public schools, graduating from Carbon High School in 1962. She completed 2 years at Carbon College. In 1960 she met the love of her life, Darryl Zaccaria. They went together for 2 years, were engaged for 2 years, and were married for 58 years.

Judy and Darryl had 3 children: Jason, Darren and Desiree. There was nothing more important to her than family. She was a beautiful seamstress, dedicated homemaker and a fabulous cook, all skills she learned from her mother.

Life was not without challenge for Judy. In August 2019 their beautiful daughter Desiree died, leaving her heartbroken. A few years later Judy fought a courageous battle with cancer, handling everything with grace, dignity, and strength.

She is survived by her husband Darryl, and sons Jason, Darren (Judy Look) and granddaughter Alexis. Also, by sisters Jona (Tony) Gonzales, Barbara (Bill) Jewkes, loving nieces, nephews, a special uncle Lou (Madeline) Tonc, extended family, and a community of friends.

She was a pillar at St John Vianney church. A Rosary will be held 9/8/22, 7 pm at SJV. Mass of Christian burial will be held at 11am on 9/9/22 at St John Vianney, 12600 84th Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98034.

    Dear sweet Judy: I will miss our daily phone chats to just check in .Our lives forever changed in many ways. Your suffering is over, knowing this gives us comfort. You were an Angel here on earth so you were called home to fly with the Angels – may the perpetual light shine upon you and may the angels take you to paradise. Our love for each other is eternal. We will once again enjoy being together, having a cup of coffee and catching up. Rest In Peace dear sister- till then❤️❤️❤️

    Oh my beautiful sister Judy, it seems surreal to be writing this. Although I saw you suffering so and although I know that you are at peace and reunited with your beloved Desiree and our Mom and Dad and although I am happy for you that your suffering here on earth is over and that you are in God’s presence I am so sad for me and all who love you so much. I will miss you (I do already), especially those daily phone chats that we shared. I will miss us getting together to vacation in some pretty amazing places and also those quiet moments just enjoying our morning coffee and “girl talk”. I will miss getting your beautiful notes and letters in the mail, sharing a favorite recipe with you and I will miss your smile, hearing your voice/laughter. I will miss you every day (I already do), but I cherish every memory and look forward to seeing you again. Love you, Barbara

    Oh Mama Judy, you were such a bright light to those around you and now you’re shining down on us. The only comfort is knowing that you’re with our beloved girl Desi. You and Darryl were at every softball, basketball, soccer game of ours cheering us on and I’ll never forget you helping get me and Dez thru drivers ed and all of the rolling laughs! And bringing the Glitter Girls together when we all needed each other most. Thank you for the wonderful memories and always smiling. We love you, please give Dez one of your biggest hugs for me, I so wish I could have just one more Mama Judy hug. You are adored and so very missed.
