Judith Ann “Judy” Mugg, 74, of Winona Lake, passed away Tuesday evening, May 11, 2021, at the Wellbrooke of Carmel Retirement Community.

Judy was born April 21, 1947, in Bluffton, to John Mugg and Martha Beeker Mugg.  Both parents preceded her in death.

A 1965 graduate of Bluffton High School, Judy attended Ball State University and later received her master’s in education from IPFW in Fort Wayne. She was an educator for many years, serving in several capacities, including the principal of Sacred Heart Elementary School in Warsaw.  After retiring from education, Judy worked at the Titus Funeral Home in Warsaw for several years, and kept active by working several part-time jobs, including supervising student teachers for IPFW. She also served on the hospital board and spent many hours volunteering at Grace Village and visiting with the residents.

Judy attended the Pleasant View Bible Church in Warsaw, and in her free time, she enjoyed counted cross stitching and visiting and spending time with friends and acquaintances.  She was an avid sports fan, and especially enjoyed rooting for Purdue football and basketball, along with the Chicago Cubs.
