Obituary for Dr. Judith Anne Colbert

Dr. Judith Anne Colbert

November 2, 1945 - March 1, 2020

Judy passed away courageously and peacefully on March 1st at Guelph General Hospital with loved ones by her side.

She will be deeply missed by her sister Nancy Pullman, brother-in-law Roy Pullman, nephew Drew Pullman (Jennifer), niece Allison Watts (Geoff), and great nieces Victoria and Vera. She was predeceased by her parents, Whitney and Evelyn Colbert.

Judy was born in London, Ontario and grew up in Hyde Park, a community for which she held great pride, and one that she had written about in several non-fiction stories about her childhood and early life on the farm and in the village.

Judy graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Ph.D. in English in 1978. Her career has been spent as an educator, writer and consultant in language, communication, and early childhood education. In more recent years, much of her work has centered on young immigrant and refugee settlement, including drafting legislation in Canada and the US and speaking internationally. She was also the editor of businesshealth magazine.

Judy will be fondly remembered for her generosity, intelligence, love of the arts, and as an enthusiastic conversationalist and friend.

A celebration of Judy’s life has been POSTPONED until further notice. In lieu of flowers, Judy has requested donations be made to the London & Middlesex Heritage Museum and UNICEF. Donation cards may be placed at the Gilbert MacIntyre & Son Funeral Home (519-822-4731) and condolences may be sent to

Planted in the area of greatest need


How very sad to hear about the passing of Judith I first met Judith in 2006 when she was visiting BC and interested in our Mobile Child Care Services. She was so encouraging and supportive of the work we were doing. I later went on the to work with newcomers and Judith did workshops for our staff and the City of Surrey. Everytime she came to BC she would call, I will miss her genuine ability to engage in conversation and feel happy to known her.

I was very saddened to hear of Judith's passing. I had the honor of working with her several times thru NARA and she taught me a lot about teaching others. She was a happy, gifted and courageous person and I feel blessed to have known her. I know the good Lord will make use of her many talents! God Bless you Judith.

Nancy & family, thank you for sharing the sad news of Judy’s passing, a brilliant mind gone too soon. Sending love from the Carr (Leslie/Whiteford) family! I know Mom would be saddened. She loved Judith who was so good to stay in touch with her over the years. Maggie Carr

It is with great sadness that I heard of Judith’s passing. I have known Judith for the past twenty years. She was very instrumental in helping me to understand and interpret the relevant legislation that guides us in this area of work. Judith was very detail-oriented and precise but also humble, kind and patient.
She will be greatly missed by all.
