Judith E. Decker

HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, NJ - “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever”

Judith Ellis Decker of Holland Township, NJ died peacefully on May 21st, 2017. She was with her loving family, and in the great care of the staff at Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.

Daughter of the late Robert and Louise Ellis of Fairfield, CT, Judy is survived by her sisters Lucy Howard and Mary Bowers, children Lucy Connery, Melissa Corbin, Christopher Burt, and Lloyd Decker III. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd Decker Jr. and sister Jane Ashland. Judy was a loving grandmother to 6 beautiful grandchildren. Nothing made her happier than spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Judy was a sports enthusiast and an avid golfer. She enjoyed skiing, tennis, and traveling to play golf all over the world. As a young woman, Judy utilized her tennis knowledge and enthusiasm to establish a tennis program, “Tennis for Everyone”, for underprivileged children in New Brunswick, N.J. Each child was provided a racquet and Judy and her small staff of volunteers provided the instruction. In three short years the program achieved tremendous success as evidenced by the attendance of over 200 children and adults each week!

Her most recent accomplishments include NJ Director and District Captain of the Women Metropolitan Golf Association, President of the Green Knoll Ladies Golf League, Champion of Trenton Women’s Golf District, and leading the N.J. team to victory in the 2015 Myra Paterson Golf Competition.
