Ireland, Judy Marie, 74, passed away peacefully, after a long illness, at her residence in El Dorado with her Loving husband present.
Judy was born to Harry and Fannie (Gates) Long in El Dorado on July 18, 1946. She grew up in Butler County and attended schools here and in Wichita, where she took courses in accounting.
Judy's happiest times were when she was working at the Butler Community College, and she loved spending time with her grandchildren (who claim their grandmother was a saint). She always made time for whoever needed her, family or stranger.
She had one son, Tom Hackler, and is survived by husband Perry Ireland of the home, granddaughter Booke Hackler, grandson Darr Hackler, and 6 great grandchildren.
Judy is preceded in death by sisters Marjorie Sampson and Jessie Wright, and three brothers Jerry, Mack, and Floyd Long.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her name may be made to the American Cancer Society, 236 Topeka St., Wichita, KS 67202.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 PM Thursday, February 11, 2021 at Butler Community College, Bldg 2000, Clifford Stone Rm. Have a piece of pie for Judy!
