Judy Louise Conrad, age 72, of Marionville, Missouri, was born February 9, 1947, at home in
Aurora, Missouri to Robert Lee Carl Clevenhagen and Eunice (Buster) Hankins Clevenhagen.
The family moved to Marionville and she lived her entire life there until her health required the
move to Lakewood Assisted Living in Springfield, Missouri. She left this earthly home for her
heavenly one at 10:50 a.m. on December 13, 2019. Preceding her in death and waiting to greet
her in heaven was her beloved husband Roy Conrad, both her parents and her son-in-law David
Judy fought an 18 year battle with multiple myeloma. She fought it with grace, strength, courage
and stubbornness (of which she had an ample supply). She had a sharp wit and wasn’t afraid to
skewer you with it if she thought you deserved it.
Judy was Mom to four daughters and their husbands, Theresa and Craig Setzer of Republic,
Missouri, Tracy Glenn and Chad Lammon of Nixa, Missouri, Tammy and Chris Hughes of
Marionville, Bethany and Keith Boaz of Springfield and her only son and his wife Clinton and
Jennifer Conrad of Warrensburg, Missouri. She also leaves behind her brother and his wife, Bob
and Patty Clevenhagen of Washington Missouri, her sister and husband, Bethany and Mark
Dameron of Springfield, one brother-in-law and his wife, Ron and Joann Conrad of The
Villages, Florida, one sister-in-law, and her husband Debbie and Bobby Ogden of Willard,
Missouri and many cousins and friends. She was Nana to 11 grandchildren on whom she
absolutely doted, a loving G-Nana to 2 great-grandsons and Aunt Judy to her nieces and
nephews. Judy is also survived by her special friend, Evie and also her divine Ya Yas, Carol
Sue, Joyce, Kay and Ruth Ann, lifelong friends.
A visitation was held from 1:00-2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 17, 2019, at the Crafton-
Cantrell Funeral Home in Aurora, Missouri, with a funeral service that followed at 2:00 p.m. Burial
followed at the Marionville IOOF Cemetery.
The family asks that instead of flowers or plants you remember and honor Judy with memorial
donations to Phoenix Hospice In Time of Need program in care of the funeral home.
The family wants to say thank you to the wonderful and caring staff at Lakewood. Judy was
always treated with love and respect there and they were outstanding in the way they treated us
as family as we gathered to be with Judy on her final journey. Words seem inadequate but they
are sincerely spoken.
