Judy Ann Williamson was born on February 5, 1947, to Purnelby "Dolly" (Brady) and Edwin Williamson in Lake Williams, N.D. Judy went to beauty school and became a beautician and later on a cook.

She married Louis Schlossnagle on December 24, 1969, in Grangeville, Idaho, only a few weeks after their first date. They would go on to spend over fifty years together. They were blessed with four children. They raised multiple children as a foster care parent and adopted, Sonya and Johnnie, whom they raised as a daughter and son.

Later in life, they became a host to four foreign exchange students, who all stayed in contact with her, a testament to their deeply generous and understanding character.

Judy enjoyed cooking and knitting. She loved taking care of her family and anyone who needed help.

Judy is survived by her daughters, Shelly Schlossnagle and Sonya Rose; son, Johnnie Moore; brother, Johnnie Williamson; sisters, Sheila Larsen, Lenore Forsman and Beverly Acree; grandchildren, David Archuletta, Jr., Amber Archuletta, Dakota Rose and Mason Rose and great-grandchild, Gavin Lee Archuletta.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Louis Schlossnagle; parents, Dolly and Edwin Williamson; son, Glen Williamson; brother, Louie Williamson; and sisters, Donna Martonen and Irene Shacker.
