On Sept. 26, 1940 Judy Edgar was born at the Allen Hospital and Clinic to parents Pauline and Donald Edgar. Judy was raised in Burnet attending the Burnet School until she graduated as a senior from Burnet High School.
Judy moved to Austin to attend University of Texas in Austin in a freshman campus dorm. As a little girl and through her early adult life Judy was an active Girl Scout. She was a troop leader in Burnet and assisted starting and running the summer Girl Scout retreat Camp TexLake located in Spicewood. While attending UT in Austin she continued her active role in Girl Scout office in Austin and became a key member and was voted to represent Texas in Washington D.C. for the March of Dimes crusade to end Polo with a vaccine. While attending UT Judy dated Thrasher and after a year they got engaged. Judy was the Register of The Lone Star Girl Scout Council and continued this job until after marrying Thrasher.
Judy and Thrasher were married at the First Baptist Church in Burnet on June 10, 1961. Their first home was on Allen family farm outside of Marble Falls they lived and worked the Pecan Orchard and cattle for over five years. Their first child, Mary Pauline Allen, was born on May 25, 1962 at the Allen Hospital. Judy and Thrasher moved to Austin and San Antonio in the years before the birth of their second child, Myra Jane Allen, in Austin at Brackenridge Hospital on Aug. 8, 1970.
In 1971 the family moved overseas to the Hawaiian Islands was they lived for the next seven years on Oahu and Kauai. Judy was active mother with school activities with both Mary and Myra. Judy was also active with the Kailua First Baptist Church they attended in Kauai. Judy was asked to fill a void in the church and serve as the Director of Youth. In this role she started a preschool with the church to assist and serve local native children and their families, still serving the community to this day.
Late 1977 the family moved back to the mainland, flying to LA and driving to Texas. Judy and Thrasher bought their home to raise their two girls in Burnet. After renovating and moving in for the third generation of Edgars, the Allenís soon bought the business, The Oaks Nursing home. As the years went by Judy became the administrator of the largest private employer in Burnet County for over thirty years. Judy and Thrasher are proud supporters of Burnet by attending and donating to school and city events.
In 2010 Judy and Thrasher decided to sell The Oaks to retire and spend time with their grandchildren. Wonderful times and memories were enjoyed together as a family both at the family home and traveling to many grandsons events. After much consideration, Judy and Thrasher moved to The Country Oaks in November 2012. The Country Oaks has taken such effort in the care of both Judy and Thrasher. The family would like to thank the staff at The Country Oaks for their devotion to Judy.
Judy is survived by her beloved husband Thrasher, oldest daughter Mary, living in North Houston, Myra and husband Scott living in San Marcos and their two children Trevor Scott Thrasher and Trent Robert Douglas Habbit.
Those serving as pallbearers are Steve Newton, Sam Newton, Greg Newton, Jimmy Newton, Tim Denton and Jack Butler.
