Judith “Judy” Exline, age 62, of Jackson, passed away Saturday, June 3, 2017 at Edgewood Manor in Wellston, surrounded by her family. She was born January 26, 1955 to the late John and Irene (McFann) Boggs.

She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Everything Judy did was for her children and grandchildren and family. She was the glue that held the family together. She could sew and cook anything, she was also very creative. She would help anyone who needed it, she took in countless people into her home who needed help over the years and never turned anybody away. For over 17 years, Judy worked in manufacturing for Gino’s/Pillsbury and Kenworth.

She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Roger Exline, of Jackson; children, Adrea Rippeth, of Hilliard, Ohio, Britt Rippeth, of Jackson, Colter Exline, of Jackson; grandchildren, Gannon, Grant, Bianca and Aidan Rippeth; siblings, Johnny Boggs, Roger (Sandy) Boggs, Sherry (Boggs) Pitts, Vicky (Boggs) Jenkins, Ricky (Jody) Boggs and Jeff Boggs. Also surviving are numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Ronnie Boggs and sister JoAnn (Boggs) Tilley.

In honoring Judy’s wishes, she will be cremated. Burial will be at the convenience of the family at Fairmount Cemetery at a later date. Online condolences may be sent to
