Judy was born on July 25, 1942, in Havre to George and Renette (Bogut) Turbak, the oldest of five girls. She was raised in Havre, and graduated from Havre Central High School in 1960. She continued her education at Northern Montana College where she earned her associate degree as a medical secretary. On August 24, 1963, Judy married her high school sweetheart, Ed Matter, and together, they raised six children.

Judy was an incredibly selfless and caring person who always put everyone before herself, especially her family. Her sweet spirit and kind heart had a special way of making everyone around her feel welcome and at ease. Caring for her family was not only something that she loved to do, but something in which she excelled. She was the absolute best wife and mother, and we were all exceedingly blessed to have her in our lives. Not only was she caring, Judy was very smart with a wit to match. She had a great sense of humor and often caught you off guard with her teasing, making it that much more entertaining.

Judy was a devoted wife, and loved and cherished Ed. They were models and examples of a life lived together in love.

Judy was a faithful servant of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and she modeled Him in all that she put her hand to.

She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Renette Turbak; her sisters Jan Miller, infant Joan Turbak, Julie Turbak, and grandson Clayton Bias Jr.

Judy is survived by her beloved husband, Ed Matter of Havre; children, Jennifer (Scott) Hendrickson of Havre, Jay (Wendy) Matter of Cheyenne, WY, Jill (Randy) Black of New Virginia, IA, Joan (Clayton) Bias of Phoenix, AZ, Joseph (Carrie) Matter of Great Falls, and Jeri Ann (Shane) Skelton of Geyser; 12 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; sister Jeanne (Michael) Kase of Billings; and numerous nieces and nephews.
