Judith E. (Dodge) Halloran 96, of Milford, died peacefully at home, with family at her side, Wednesday February 12, 2020, following an illness. She joins her beloved late husband John J. Halloran with whom she shared 73 years of marriage.
Born April 27, 1923, in Boston, the daughter of the late Wilfred E. and Helen L. (Hamor) Dodge, she was a former resident of Newton, Waltham, Millis, Medfield, South Yarmouth, Franklin, Massachusetts and Fountain Inn, South Carolina.
She was raised in Boston and Newton, MA. After high school Judie attended art school and became an accomplished artist and homemaker. She taught Sunday School at the Unitarian Church in Medfield and spent time as a Foster parent. She also taught art classes and was President of the Cape Cod Art Association where she enjoyed displaying her oil and water color paintings. Her life became alive in the joy she spread to others by sharing her talent and beautiful paintings. Shades of her favorite color turquoise could be seen throughout her work.
When not painting, Judie could be found bird watching, enjoying the company of her cats and dogs, creating beauty in other ways as she thrived in her gardens and carving wood into beautiful art sculptures.
She is survived by 2 sons; John E. “Jay” Halloran and wife Linda of South Carolina, Kevin R. Halloran and wife Kimberly of Franklin, 6 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
As the proud wife of John J. Halloran, who served in the United States Navy during WWII on the USS Montauk, funeral services will take place at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne and will be held privately.
There are no calling hours.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be sent to Old Colony Hospice at www.oldcolonyhospice.org/
