CREVE COEUR, IL - Judy McCaw, 70, of 309 Margaret Drive passed away at 9:21 p.m. Monday, April 11, 2011, at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria after her third battle with cancer.

Born May 3, 1940, in Peoria to James Henry and Ella Margarette (Blumenstock) Harvey, she married Allen McCaw on Aug. 27, 1960, in East Peoria. He survives.

Also surviving are two daughters, Trina (Jim) Kane of Wylie, Texas, and Mickie (Ron) Shields of Glendale Heights; one son, Tom (Rachel Hodel) McCaw of Creve Coeur; six grandchildren, Jimmy Kane, Tara Kane, Jake Shields, Gavin Shields, Logan McCaw and Alexis McCaw; one sister, Ollie Harvey of Peoria; one brother, James Harvey of Chillicothe, Ohio; and her mother-in-law, Frances McCaw of Viola.

Judy worked as a waitress at many East Peoria restaurants, including Kenny's Cafe, Boundy's Cafe, Mac's Cafe and Newell's Cafe. She worked as a packer for Foster & Gallagher in Peoria. She also owned and operated Judy's Snacks & Stuff in Creve Coeur. She finished her career making doughnuts at Casey's in Creve Coeur.

While she was working at Boundy's, a young gentleman walked in. Judy took one look at him and said: "That's the man I'm going to marry." Allen L. McCaw and Judith A. Harvey got married later that year and spent the next 50 years together.

Judy graduated from University High School in Normal. In the 1970s, she enjoyed playing softball for the Fondulac Park District.
