December 21, 1946 - October 15, 2020
Judy Ann Kirk, age 73, steadfast and loving wife, mother and grandmother, stepped into the presence of Jesus Christ on Thursday, October 15, 2020, after a decade long battle with cancer. She was born Judy Ann Brooks on December 21, 1946 in Waurika, Oklahoma, and enjoyed a childhood filled with reading, road trips, and adventures with her younger sister, Peggy. She graduated with a Masters in English from Oklahoma State, where she met her husband, John David Kirk. Together they were involved with The Navigators during college and became members of Metropolitan Bible Church, where they would serve for years to come. They added two beautiful daughters to their family, Suzanne and Shannon. David's career in financial services took them to Texas, Southern California, and Florida. In the summer of 2020, they returned to their beloved home state of Oklahoma. Judy started working for a ministry within Cru known as The Jesus Film Project in 1997. For 18 years she gathered information (both in the international field and in the office) to help write reports for donors and those interested in how God was using The Jesus Film to reach millions around the world. To date, there are more than 1,900 translations of the film! She loved to write, edit, and passionately share these stories. Judy had a dry, quick wit, loved American history, devoured any book she could, was known to send a “party in a box” to people far and wide (and play a mean kazoo), organized everything she touched, loved making people laugh through her skits, studied maps voraciously, hated bananas, had wicked Pictionary skills, read her Bible each and every day and prayed for more people than we can ever know. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, David, her two daughters, Suzanne (Kirk) McKay of San Clemente, CA and Shannon (Kirk) Stutler of Plano, TX, her two sons-in-law, Aron McKay and Steve Stutler, and her 7 amazing grandkids, Maggie, Curren, Kate and Gavin McKay and Jacob, Stella, and Jude Stutler. She is also survived by her sister, Peggy Pierce and brother-in-law, Bill Pierce of Edmond, OK. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donating either to The Jesus Film Project at www.jesusfilm.org (and grab the free app where you can watch any of those 1,900 translations at your fingertips) or Metropolitan Bible Church, 7201 W. Britton Rd,, Oklahoma City, OK, 73132 (www.metropolitanbible.church) A service celebrating the life of Judy will be held on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 1 p.m. at the Metropolitan Bible Church, 7201 W Britton Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73132. An obituary will be published soon.
