It is with much sadness and with heavy hearts that we share with you the passing of our dear friend and fellow Rotarian Judy Garver. Following a short illness, Judy was placed in hospice care two weeks ago. She passed away peacefully on August 11, 2020. 
 
Our deepest sympathy is extended to Judy’s husband Hal and their family. A memorial gathering is scheduled on Friday, August 21, 3:00-6:00 p.m. at Family Funeral Care, 2904 Orchard Lake Road, Keego Harbor, Michigan. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund or PolioPlus Fund.

              August 11, 1940 - August 11, 2020
 
Years ago, while working as a Branch Vice President at Manufacturers/Comerica Bank, a customer invited Judy to attend a Rotary meeting in Auburn Hills. She attended her first meeting in 1991 and has been actively involved ever since. Before long she served as treasurer for the Auburn Hills Club, followed by the role of President-Elect and in 1994-1995 became President.
 
In 1995 Judy was presented with the opportunity to become an Assistant Governor in Rotary International District 6380. Additionally, she assumed numerous responsibilities on the District Staff for many years. In 1998 she became a member of the Rotary Club of West Bloomfield and fulfilled numerous roles over the years including President, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership Chair. 
 
In 2009 Judy became District Governor of District 6380 (Southeastern Michigan & Southwest Ontario) with responsibility for leading, motivating and guiding Rotary clubs within the district. Judy was committed to supporting The Rotary Foundation as a Paul Harris Fellow (+8), Benefactor and a Major Donor Level 1.  
 
Judy will long be remembered for her tireless dedication to and support for Rotary. Many have learned from her; many have been inspired by her. She exemplified the Rotary tenet of “Service Above Self” and truly will be missed.
