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

Also surviving are two daughters, Trina (Jim) Kane and Mickie (Ron) Shields; one son, Tom (Rachel Hodel) McCaw; six grandchildren, Jimmy Kane, Tara Kane, Jake Shields, Gavin Shields, Logan McCaw and Alexis McCaw; one sister, Ollie Harvey; one brother, James Harvey; and her mother-in-law, Frances McCaw.

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.
