Judith Walp, 93, New Hampton, MO passed away Tuesday, February 27, 2024, at a Bethany, MO nursing home.

She was born on March 9, 1930, on the farm where she grew up north of New Hampton to Edgar and Ruth (Everly) Carter.

After her parents passed, she moved back to her birthplace and remained there until just recently. She was baptized at an early age and became a member of the New Hampton United Methodist Church.

She married Bert Eugene Walp on June 20, 1968, in Kansas City, MO.

Judith lived and worked in Kansas City and later moved to the farm next to her paternal grandparents, next to her birth home. She cared for many children through the years and enjoyed seeing those children with her own children. The last few years she greatly enjoyed her trips to Kentucky to see great grandkids and Thanksgiving trips to Quincy, IL with family. She enjoyed “Seek and Finds” and loved inspired romance books. She cut out many double knit blocks for blankets that she and Dorothea made and donated. She always had a smile and will be missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; brother, Charles Adam (Marcell) Carter and a son-in-law, Gary Atwood.

Judith is survived by her five children, Donald Walp, Kansas City, MO, Douglas Walp, Florida, James Walp, Idaho, Janis Atwood, Campbellsville, KY, and Dorothea Walp, New Hampton, MO; grandchildren, Rhyan (Marsha) Atwood, Campbellsville, KY, Lindsey (Travis) Begley, Campbellsville, KY, James (Lizzy) Walp, Caldwell, ID, Tyler Walp, Boise, ID, Rachal Walp, Texas, Toni (Shane) Guinnip, Booneville, MO; great grandchildren, Anna Kate Atwood, Hunter Begley, Maddox Atwood, Wyatt Begley, and Abigail Walp; and her nephews, Lonnie Carter, Larry Carter and David Carter.
