In memory of
Judith Ann Alcock
Alcock, Judith Ann 8/25/1932 - 7/23/2020 Ann Arbor Judith died on Thursday, July 23 at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. She is survived by son, Jay and daughter-in-law, Kirsten; daughters, Lorie, Amy and Haley; grandchildren, Takia, Justine and Athena; great granddaughter, Amaya; and brother, Thomas. She was born on August 25, 1932 in Hillsdale, Michigan to Erwin and Irene Hill, where she enjoyed growing to adulthood in a small community. In 1955, sometime after having met on a blind date, she married Gerald Vincent Alcock from Chicago, where they initially lived before settling in Ann Arbor to raise a family, enjoying a fruitful life together until his death in 2006. Judith was a homemaker who led a purposeful life. Perceptive and insightful, effortlessly gracious and authentic, family, friends and strangers gravitated toward her innate kindness. She loved raising her family, immeasurably impacting three generations of progeny. Judith met life's challenges with remarkable fortitude, having a discerning ability to solve for complications on her own terms. Music sustained and invigorated Judith throughout her life. She had a great love of jazz, understanding the art form as if a professional, and musicians enjoyed her depth of discussion with them. She supported local jazz and felt a deep gratitude for a friendship with Ron Brooks and the musical access afforded by his Bird of Paradise club, and more recently, by that of the Blue Llama club. She was a founding member of the Southeastern Michigan Jazz Association (SEMJA), and felt privileged to have served as its program chair during the 1990s. The immediate family recognizes our good fortune to have had her in our lives for so long. Her influence will not dissipate as we recall her resilience and vibrancy into our respective futures. The family will hold a private celebration of her life at an unknown date, after the coronavirus is contained. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to SEMJA, Southeastern Michigan Jazz Association, 712 Ann Street, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
