Judith Ann (Liepertz) Hanes
FAIRFIELD, Conn. — It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Judith Ann Hanes of Mills, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 6, 2023. Judith was 84 years old. She was born in 1938 in Norwalk, Connecticut, and was the oldest daughter of the late Vera Benedict Liepertz and Harold Liepertz.
She grew up with her younger sister Beverly Liepertz Channey in Fairfield, Connecticut, among much loved family members.
She met the love of her life, the late Joseph E. Hanes, while working at the Fairfield Country Club. Judith and Joseph married and raised three children, the late Cynthia A. Hanes of Mills, Pennsylvania; Kathleen M. O’Connor of Oak Park, Illinois; and Joseph E. Hanes, Jr. of Torrington.
She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, as well as lifetime close friends. Judith’s wish in her life was to have a family to care for. She volunteered at many organizations, was an avid reader, and so enjoyed family gatherings. She will be deeply missed.
A service for Judith and for her husband and daughter will be held at the Parker Hill Cemetery in Sunderlinville, Pennsylvania, on June 17, 2023, at 11:00 a.m., with a luncheon to follow.
