Judy Mae (Grossman) Brown

October 30, 1946 — August 22, 2021

Judy Mae (Grossman) Brown, 74, formerly of Manchester, passed away on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at Penn State Holy Spirit Medical Center, Camp Hill. The daughter of the late Edward J. Grossman and Helen J. (Shenck) Bates, she was born on October 30, 1946 in Harrisburg.

Judy attended Cedar Cliff High School and would stay in Central PA throughout her 74 years. She worked for FCI (formerly Dupont/Berg Electronics), Emigsville, and Red Lion Controls, York.

First and foremost, Judy loved her whole family. When she managed to find some down time, she was always visiting someone. Whether it be her siblings, her children or grandchildren, they were her life, and she always seemed to be with one of them. Judy always did what was right, and this was especially true if it dealt with family. Judy loved to just pop in at one of her children’s houses, and she always wanted to help; this included cleaning, running errands, or just providing support for her kids and grandkids. Judy loved her gum, fireballs, cooking, crossword puzzles, Sudoku, playing the lottery and tagging along with family no matter where they were headed. Judy made the best peanut butter fudge, pot pie, filling balls – you name it! She was hands-down the best cook! No matter what Judy did in life, she would put her heart into it, always doing the best she could. Her kids couldn’t have asked for a better mother, and she treated outsiders like family. She wasn’t one to put others down, and always offered words of encouragement. Health issues slowed her down in recent years, but she would make many friends while spending her final years at Manor Care, Camp Hill. Her love for her family, and her thoughtfulness and kindness, will remain with those closest to her forever.

Mrs. Brown is survived by her four children, Kelly S. Lehman (and her significant other, Duke J. Beinhaur) of Manchester, Richard E. Brown Jr. (and his wife, Michelle) of York, Troy A. Brown (and his significant other, Miranda Eltz) of Dover, and Tracy L. Althouse (and her husband, David) of Etters; siblings, Helen Ilyes, James Grossman, Carol Shorts, Terry Volovski, Linda Geissinger and Michael Geissinger; and six grandchildren, Brandon, Morgan, Hailey, Aubrey, Hunter and Cole. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandfather, Herman B. Shenck; and a sister-in-law and friend, Kathy Volovski.

Services are private and will be held at the convenience of the family.
