Judith “Judi” (Carr) Daigle, age 81, died peacefully at the Haynes House of Hope in Granville, New York, on Friday, Feb. 24, 2023.
Judi was born and raised in Bellmore, New York. Here she graduated from Bellmore High School and then attended Alfred University.
Judi lived in many places, including Bellmore, Long Island, Chittenango and Irvington, New York as well as Carson City, Nevada, but for more than 50 years Granville was home.
She was an engaged community member who could be seen volunteering at the library, singing in St. Mary’s Church choir or working at the polls on Election Day.
She was an active member of the Granville Garden Club where she lent her gardening skills to beautifying Granville.
As the wife and mother of veterans, Judi was always volunteering and supporting veterans through the VFW and American Legion. She was an aide in the Granville public schools where she positively touched the lives of many students.
She was an impeccable homemaker whose home sparkled, and everything had its place.
Wherever she went, she was always the picture of fashion.
Throughout her life she had many pets, as well as grand pets who followed her with devotion. She was the original animal whisperer.
Judi was predeceased by her parents John and Edith Carr; her brother John Carr; husband Homer Daigle; friend George Reed; and stepchildren Linda Daigle, Gary Daigle and Karen Daigle.
She is survived by her children Kevin Danehy (wife Anne and daughters Caitlin and Caroline) of Wakefield, Massachusetts; Kara Maloney (husband Michael and children Mackenzie, Peyton, Shane, Shannon and Amanda [husband Chris]) of Elmira, New York; and Homer “Jay” Daigle (wife Stacey and daughter Evelyn) of Huntsville, Alabama.
