Obituary for Judy "Granny" Ainsworth

“Granny” Ainsworth, Judith “Judy” Ann, 78 of Spencer, OK went to be with her Lord on January 24, 2018 in Midwest City, OK. She was born December 27, 1939 in Oklahoma City, OK to Joshua Daniel “Jay” and Lela Miller.

Judy is survived by her husband Leonard, of the home; her son, David Ainsworth, of Jones; daughter, Dana Woods and her husband Eddie of Jones; 5 grandchildren, Gera Campbell and husband Troy, Rae Lin Viviani and husband Jason, Matt Woods and wife Amanda, Lance Woods and wife Candice, and Jay Woods; 14 great grandchildren, Bradley, Tessa, Lela, Brock, Kayla, Lucas, Hailey, Nora, Evelyn, Dean, JC, Sierra, Aiyana and William; 1 brother, Tommy Miller and wife Peggy; and many extended family and friends.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Jay and Lela Miller; and sister, Jaynelle Cleveland.
Judy was a lifelong resident of Spencer were she went to school at Spencer Elementary until 8th grade and then Jones High School, where she graduated and met Leonard Ainsworth, the love of her life and husband of 60 years. In high school, Judy was in the band, played sports and continued to play ball until she was 44. Judy loved ball so much, she coached her daughter’s softball and basketball teams. All the girls that she coached loved her. Everyone could count on Judy. She was always helping someone no matter what they needed.

Judy was a volunteer firefighter with the Spencer Fire Department that was started by her father and uncle and then she transferred to Jones Fire Department where she retired in 1989. Judy became one of the first CPR instructors for The American Heart Association where she volunteered to help teach others to save lives and then also became the teacher for new instructors. Judy also did taxes for over 30 years but don’t ask her to do something against the tax law because it wasn’t happening. She loved fishing, listening to music, playing softball and basketball and watching most all sports that she could.

Even though she loved to help others, her favorite thing ever was being a Granny!!! She helped Leonard’s Granny during the last years of her life and that influenced her to know she wanted to be called Granny from day one. Granny loved, more than anything, to spend time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren and couldn’t get enough of them. Granny would take them to the lake to go fishing, to a band concert, to meet Thomas the Train, trips to the ocean and mountains and always was there watching their softball, baseball, basketball, and football games. Of course, her grandkids were the best at whatever they did and no one, including their parents, had better yell at her babies. By going to all these events with her grandkids, she became everyone’s Granny and most didn’t know her real name.

She will be dearly missed but her limitations are gone and she can now run and play ball again. We know she is already visiting with all her friends and family that went before her and will be waiting on us when we finally meet again. We love you Granny and say, see you later. Your memory will stay alive in each of us and we know you will be watching over us.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 1:00pm at Barnes Friederich Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. J.C. Walker officiating. Interment will follow at Kolb Cemetery in Spencer, OK.
