Judi was born on February 22, 1940 in Helena, MT, the daughter of Chris and Marie Sutherland. At age 4, she moved with her family to Spokane, WA. While attending college at Washington State University, she met Gary Storment, whom she married on June 20, 1959, recently celebrating 54 wonderful years together. In 1965 they moved from Yakima to Rockford, and in 1980 moved to the family ranch Gary grew up on in Endicott.
Judi was actively involved in numerous community groups, such as Rainbow Girls, Campfire Council, and the Inland Empire Garden Club in Spokane; Whitman County 4-H Advisory Committee, and the Country Cuzzins Garden Club of St. John. Judi loved singing, and throughout the years, directed multiple church choirs and soloed at many community functions, funerals and weddings. She thoroughly enjoyed being involved and helping others, and could be found cooking meals for any function, organization or family in need, chaperoning school classes on field trips, judging homemaker projects at many county fairs, or making wedding gowns for family & friends. For 12 years, she was the head cook at the Endicott School, where her kind, caring nature and passion for cooking & children will forever be remembered.
Together, Judi and Gary raised 4 children, Kim (Walla Walla, WA), Jeff (Cheney, WA), Joe (Grand Rapids, MI) and Chrysan (Grayland, WA). Judi gave herself to her family, providing love and compassion, guidance and support. There wasn’t a moment of her children’s lives she wasn’t involved in.
