Judy Sue Schumacher, daughter of Frank and Jimmie (King) Lovelady, was born January 5, 1943, in Fletcher, Oklahoma. Judy departed this life, surrounded by her family, on June 7, 2019, in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the age of 76 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers, Mel Barton, Freddy Livingston, Bobby Livingston and Donny Lovelady; two grandchildren, Tommy Forgione and Joshua Forgione.
Judy was a devoted Federal servant, who worked twenty-five years for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. After retirement she became an entrepreneur and started various businesses, to include an engraving shop, A-Z Rubber Stamp and Engraving, out of her home. Judy was a very loving and caring person, with a competitive spirit. Judy loved watching her grandkids and great-grandkids play sports and was their biggest fan. In the later years, Judy loved to crochet, was a huge Thunder Basketball fan, and enjoyed spending time with her sister. She deeply loved her family and would do anything for them. One of her greatest accomplishments was being blessed with the challenge of raising her grandson, Donny Forgione, of whom she is deeply proud.
She is survived by a very loving family that includes one daughter, Tammy Moreno, of Tulsa, Oklahoma; two sons, Jeffrey “Stoney” Forgione, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Michael Dean Forgione, of Tulsa, Oklahoma; four grandchildren, Michael Moreno and wife Jessi, of Collinsville, Oklahoma, Rachael Goodman and husband Blake, of Sperry, Oklahoma, Samantha Forgione, of Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Donny Forgione, of Tulsa, Oklahoma; two brothers, Tommy Lovelady and Ricky Lovelady; one sister, Madie Lou Gray; five great-grandchildren; other relatives and many friends.
