Judith “Judi” McFerran Robertson
- April 8, 2022
A wonderful lady passed the morning of April 7, 2022. Judith McFerran Robertson was born in Ft. Smith, Arkansas in 1947. Judi was the daughter of Jack and Mary Sue McFerran and the sister of Steve McFerran and was raised in Texas, primarily in Corsicana. She then graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Education.
While in school at Austin, Judi met Ron Robertson and they were married in 1970. Ron worked for an oil company and they began a life of travel that lasted 51+ years in which they lived in 14 homes. Judi taught school in their first two stops, Houma, LA and Lagos, Nigeria. Their daughter Beth was born in Corsicana while they were in Lagos the first time. They were there 2 more times for a total of 10 years, then in London and several U.S. stops.
In each location, Judi was very active in the community and in the church they attended. A significant example of that was the years they lived in Algiers Point, New Orleans. When Ron and Judi left there, Judi received from the New Orleans City Council a Proclamation at the Algiers Courthouse that read: Be it proclaimed by the City of New Orleans that this council recognizes Judi Robertson, Active in community efforts to benefit Algiers Point Historic District Landmark Commission, Founder of the Algiers Historical Society and Friends of the Algiers Courthouse, Active in Christmas in October, Algiers Point Association, and the United Methodist Church, in the name of and by the authority vested in the Council of the City of New Orleans, August 25, 2002.
This was our Judi. In addition to the above, she was a creative person and an extremely talented quilter.
A memorial service for Judi will be held at Algiers United Methodist Church at a later date.
