Obituary of Zoe "Judi" Easterday
Zoe “Judi” Easterday, of Arock, OR, passed away unexpectedly on June 17, 2019 while working at her beloved ranch with Norm. She was born on June 30, 1942 to Lorene and Duard Terry in Pocatello, ID. The family lived in Howe, ID until Judi was one year old and then moved to Echo, OR and resided there until 1956. In 1960, they bought a ranch on Cow Creek in Jordan Valley. Being that this was Judi’s senior year of high school, Judi remained in Helix, living with the school librarian until graduation.
In the fall of 1960, Judi moved to Boise, ID and attended Link’s School of Business. Upon graduation from there, she resided in Boise and worked for an insurance agency for several years. She married local rancher, Mike Hanley and they moved to Jordan Valley, OR. Their family grew with the birth of their daughter, Martha in 1970 and son, Ike in 1975.
Judi later met Norman Easterday and they were married in 1989. In addition to raising cattle on their Arock, OR ranch, Judi drove a cattle truck and kept books for their livestock hauling business. She was also a brand inspector for 32 years.
Judi is survived by her husband, Norman Easterday; her daughter, Martha (John) Corrigan of Crane, OR; her son, Ike (Shirley) Hanley of Jacksonville, OR and 5 grandchildren: Cassidy and Zoey Morgan Corrigan and Drew, Grace and Fin Hanley. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, Bruce and David.
