After a courageous battle against melanoma, our sweet momma, Judith Broughton, went home to be with Jesus, July 8, 2019 with her loving husband by her side at Liza’s Place.
Our dear Ahmaw, Nan, Tootsie loved camping, playing Scrabble and watching movies, but most of all she loved sitting around her campfire and watching her grandchildren play outside.
The daughter of the late Ernest and Julia Gibitz of Akron, she was preceded in death by her beloved son, Jeremy Kidd; her sister, Joyce Jenner, and her brother-in-law, Richard Wimer.
She is survived by her husband of 25 years, Darrell Broughton; her sister, Patricia (Herb) Day; her three children, Julianne (Brian) Rockey, Amanda Long and Ernest (Vickie) Johler; and her many sweet grandchildren, Jaylin, Jasun and Juliah Long, Samuel, Miles and Maddox Rockey, and Zachary, Colin, Abigail and Natalie Johler.
Also surviving are her three stepchildren, Sonya (Eddie) Chambers, Jessie (Whitney) Broughton, Laura (Troy) Simms and their children, Keith Chambers, Jessop, Emily and Ayden Broughton, and Nathan, Andrew, Kimberly and Ian Simms.
Private services held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements entrusted to Toothman Funeral Home in St. Clairsville.
Thank you to all the Angels at Liza’s Place for making momma comfortable in her last days on this earth. We will forever be grateful.
