Judy Palmer Hendricks Obituary

Judith “Judy” M. Palmer Hendricks passed away on March 16, 2024. A Memorial Service will be held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ at 1pm on Tuesday, March 26th, with a reception to follow. The family has entrusted Croxford Funeral Home with her care.

Judy was born in Great Falls, MT on February 8, 1947, to Hugh and Margret (Keller) Palmer. Here, she attended local schools, graduating from Great Falls High School in 1966.

While in school, Judy met the love of her life, Tom Hendricks. They got married on March 25, 1966, at the Congregational Church in town, and would go on to have three kids and spend the next 58 years of their lives together.

Judy attended two years of college at Votech in Great Falls. She became a tax preparer and worked at H&R Block in Great Falls. She would also become the partial owner and office supervisor of the H&R Block office in Polson, MT.

Judy loved to garden both flowers and tomatoes and had created quite the garden on her deck at home. She adored all animals, and throughout her life had many pets including fish, ducks, parrots, cats, and dogs. Judy was an extensive traveler, and with her husband Tom, visited many countries throughout the world.

Anyone who knew Judy would agree that she was the most loving, caring, and understanding person they had ever met. Her absence has left a hole in her loved one’s hearts.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Hugh and Margret Palmer.

She is survived by her loving husband, Tom Hendricks; sister, Janet Buffington; sons, Terry (Carey) Hendricks, Ken Hendricks, Tom (Katy) Hendricks; her 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren; and her special friend, Jacinda Farrell.
