Judee Lynn (Bonham) Andrick, age 72, passed away June 4 at home in Hilliard, Ohio, following a long illness. Born February 2, 1951, the second of three children, Judee grew up in Columbus. A 1968 graduate of Whetstone High School, but a North High School Polar Bear at heart, she studied education at The Ohio State University before marrying Jack Andrick (of Hilliard) and focusing on starting a family. Judee and Jack, with their children Amy and Kevin, lived most of their lives in Hilliard. They enjoyed visits with extended family, camping, Statler Brothers concerts and exploring Ohio’s beautiful countryside. In her professional life, she took joy in providing exceptional customer service to City of Columbus utility and refuse customers, until the effects of multiple sclerosis forced her to retire after 22 years. During retirement Judee enjoyed paper crafts, particularly with her sister Chris and craft club friends, attending MS Society fitness classes and peer support groups, family game nights and spending time with her four grandchildren. Judee’s life was marked by generosity, selflessly sharing her time, energy and belongings with family whether in times of joy, sorrow or need.
Judee was preceded in death by parents James “Jim” Bonham and Helen (McCready) Bonham, brother James Andrew “Andy” Bonham, and former husband Jack Andrick. Survived by daughter Amy (Jason) Hissong, son Kevin (Stephanie) Andrick, sister Chris (Steve) Stirling, nephew Ben (Licia) Sapp, great-nephew Drew and grandchildren Addison, Avery, Gavin and Jackson, all of Hilliard. Special thanks to the staff of Capital City Hospice for their kindness and care during Judee’s last months.
Per Judee’s request, there will be no funeral. Family will hold a private graveside service at Wesley Chapel Cemetery at a later date. For those who wish to make a gift in her memory, the family suggests making a donation to The National MS Society.
