Judith Millar

January 18, 1942 — December 12, 2023

Judith "Judy" Templeman Trumble Millar was born in Petrolia, TX to Opal and Tomy Templeman. Her sunrise was January 18, 1942 and her sunset was December 12, 2023.

She spent her younger years growing up in Clovis, NM and Plainview, TX. She moved to Lubbock, TX where she married Dale Trumble in 1960.

Dale and Judy raised two daughters together, Cee-Cee and Tammy. Judy was a perfect mom, her girls have always been in awe of how well Judy did it all. She loved staying active - some of her favorite things to do with her family were bowling, skating, riding go-karts, camping and fishing at the lake, volleyball, mini golf, cooking, and most of all, dancing. Judy took great pride in her family. She was involved in PTA and never missed the chance to support her girls. For 30 years, Judy was the office manger for the family business, Trumble Crane & Rigging. She was a member of Women in Construction. Her husband Dale passed away in 1989.

Judy moved to Ruidoso in 1991 where she opened Kawliga's with her partner, Jimmy Millar. Kawliga's was a beautiful Southwest retail store featuring handmade antler chandeliers, one-of-a-kind furnishings, clothing and jewelry. It was the perfect stage for Judy to display her gift of decorating and style. Kawliga's was staple in the community for over three decades. There they met many lifelong friends. You were always welcome to come by and pull up a chair. On the weekends, they enjoyed tearing up the dance floor at WPS.

While most knew her as Judy, a lucky few knew her as Mimi. As always, Mimi was a fan favorite - never missing the opportunity to make her grandkids laugh and feel loved. In 2017, Judy married Jimmy, and joining them were his sons, Mac, Marty & Nick.

Judy was known for so many amazing things - she went above and beyond in everything she did. She was beautiful, fun, witty and had a heart of solid gold. Her kindness and love can not be matched. Judy spent her life serving the lord as a Baptist. May she rest in peace. She will be forever missed.

Loved ones that preceded Judy in her death are brothers, Billy Joe & Gene and sisters, Peggy, Barbara & stepson Mac Millar.

Judy is survived by her husband Jimmy, daughters, Cee-Cee (Scott), Tammy (Cory), stepsons Marty (Monica), Nick, Pam (Mac) and special nephew, Rick Templeman (Prescilla), The grandchildren Tori, Halston, Brennan, Kaci, Ashley Brooke, Brittany Renee, Brian Allen, Brittany Gail, plus 15 great grandchildren.

There will be a memorial to honor Judy in Spring 2024. Please join us in celebrating her beautiful life. Details to follow.
