Judy "Sunner" Sunski
Aspen, CO Colorado
Judy Sunski, 68, of Carbondale passed away peacefully Jan. 1, 2012 at home.
During the last five weeks of her life, she had her devoted family and friends with her at all times, by her side.
Judy was born in Vancouver, Wash. She was preceded in death by her parents.
She was a health and physical education teacher at Sayerville High School in New Jersey, where she coached field hockey and basketball for more than 24 years. She was also a member of the NJSIAA.
She moved to Colorado in 1989 and was a property/ranch manager up until her demise.
She enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowboarding and most of all, riding her Harley-Davidson motorcycles all over the state of Colorado and out of state, as well.
She was employed by the Aspen School District in 2001 as a school bus driver (route L) and as a snowplow operator. She loved driving her bus, but most of all she loved her kids, who rode with her on daily routes, extended outdoor education trips and to athletic events.
She is survived by brothers Larry Sunski of Clearwater, Fla., and Matt Sunski of Safety Harbor, Fla.; and her sister, Lynn Magee, of Longview, Texas, along with their families.
In lieu of flowers, Judy requested donations be made to the Red Hill Animal Health Center, 955 Cowen Drive, Carbondale, CO 81623, or your local animal hospital in her sweet dog’s name: Journey.
Cremation has taken place and per her wishes her ashes will be spread on top of Independence Pass in late spring/early summer.
She lived her life to the fullest on a daily basis. She loved life with no regrets and life loved her. Hugs and kisses to any child who had the privilege of ever riding her school bus during that time – she loved you guys!
