Plan Ahead

Aldrich, Judith Anne

September 10, 1934 –
 June 8, 2021


Judith Anne Aldrich was born September 10,1934 in Brimfield, Illinois and went to Heaven on June 8,2021. Judy, as her friends and family called her, truly lived her life serving others. Judy had a servant heart and would do anything to help others and she did this with a smile and a happy spirit. Judy recalled her happiest childhood memories of being with her Grandmother on the farm and helping take care of the chickens and other animals. Judy had a great love for animals and especially the pet dachshunds and other animals that were in the household. Judy’s father played saxophone in a band, and as a child she developed a love for Big Band music and for singing. Even in her later years, as her memory was fading, she was able to recall and sing many of the big band songs of Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, the Andrew Sisters and others. Because of some learning disabilities, Judy’s mother placed her in a home for girls where the teenage girls learned how to cook, clean, and care for children. Judy came to live with our family in 1956. As our mother was quite ill with Rheumatic Fever, Judy became a caretaker/nanny for the Weise children: Beth, Anne, and Billy. What was supposed to be a short term assignment to care for the children while my mother was ill turned into a lifelong loving relationship with our family. Even after the children had grown up Judy was a friend and caretaker for my mother, Rita Weise and mother in law, Hila Pepmiller. When Judy developed health problems including a broken hip and Alzheimer’s disease she was well taken care of at the Belmont Nursing Home in Allen, Tx. It has been a blessing for me and my wife Rhonda to be able to see Judy almost on a daily basis and return some care for her that she so graciously gave to others for so many years. During our many visits with Judy the past ten years she would always remark to my wife or daughter, “You look so beautiful today.” I was always amazed that Judy saw the beauty of each tree, every flower and even the blue sky. Perhaps because of her inner beauty, Judy recognized beauty in nature and in others. I am filled with great sadness in her passing, but also great joy in knowing that Judy was welcomed into Heaven with open arms, by Jesus, her Grandmother, My Mother and Father, Bill and Rita Weise and my Mother in law, Hila Pepmiller. I believe she will be wearing a very large crown as she deserves it.

With much love to our dear friend,
William J and Rhonda Weise and Family


And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine
like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
