February 23, 1944 - June 21, 2022
Judith Susan Dancing, of Huntersville, was born in Chicago on February 23 of 1944 to Ernie and Sylvia Olcott. Judy would go on to live a long, winding life filled to the brim with experiences, compassion, and an appreciation for the world around her. Judy earned her Master's degree in Nursing. Her natural loving demeanor, magnetic charm, and absolute accepting respect for life made her an excellent nurse. She went on to serve in many capacities, including Wound Care, Administration, and even as a school nurse. Judy loved music,museums, and all manners of visual arts, especially dancing. In fact, it was in Berkeley during contra dancing where she would meet Pierre, the love of her life. Judy also enjoyed the outdoors and was an enthusiastic nature photographer and a skilled botanist-- some of her indoor plants are more than twenty years old! She loved to travel and saw much of the world, but eventually she made Charlotte her home. There she and Pierre spent many happy years living life together, watching their grandchildren grow, fostering their creative spirits, and, as her children can attest, adding to her extensive sunglasses collection. Judy was a member Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church. She was deeply involved, including participating in the pastoral selection committee. The easiest was to describe her outlook on life is that she was a humanist. Judy suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. She went to live in Preston House, and the staff there gave their "Judy-Boo" the best dignified care, affection, and love that anyone could have hoped for a family member to be shown. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Preston House or to the Alzheimer's Association in memory Judy. Judy is survived by her husband Pierre Fraser; her son Keith Ouzts (Julie), her daughter Karen Madigan; five grandchildren: Jed (Brooke), Christie (Zack), Jack, Kyle, and Jacy; three great-grandchildren; her brothers, Richard Olcott (Val, deceased), Ken Olcott, and Neil Olcott (Keui-Mei Lui); her niece Lori Olcott (Will Mitchell) and her nephew Tim Olcott; a great-nephew and a great-neice; and countless friends. Judy was deeply loved by us all, and she is greatly missed even as we rejoice for her. James Funeral Home is serving the family.
