Judith Nassif Obituary, Death – I was also her guest speaker quite a few times, and we continued to keep in touch by having lunch very frequently throughout the year. Those lunches will be very difficult for me to forget. I was fortunate enough to acquire a photo of us during our very final meal together, which may be seen in the photos below, which were taken in August of the previous year. I had no idea that lunch would be the final time we shared a meal together, but I remember that we chatted a lot more than we ate, and I will always treasure those memories.
I believe that this is an excellent opportunity to RESHARE the post that I wrote as a tribute to her on her birthday a year ago. When I wrote this, I had no notion that our time together would be so brief because she was in such good health at the time. I had no clue. I raise my glass to you, Judi! I am Very Grateful to You for Everything! You will be Sorely Missed by Me! Happy birthday to the person who has been one of the most important influences in my life. My life has advanced in a significant manner as a direct result of the opportunities, knowledge, and experiences that were made possible by Judith Nassif.
It is with a Very Heavy Heart that I must inform you that at 2 in the morning, my beloved Friend, Teacher, and Mentor Judith Sihnhold Domian Nassif passed away. April 5th will be my Birthday in 2023. On Wednesday, April 12, 2023, visitation will take place from 4pm to 8pm at the Afton Kutis Funeral Home located at 10151 Gravois Rd in St. Louis, Missouri 63123. Funeral services will be held on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. I had the privilege of having Judi as my DECA Teacher in 1996 and 1997, and out of that experience grew a friendship that will last a lifetime. After we both graduated from high school, we continued to serve as Judges at DECA Competitions together.
There is no amount of appreciation that I could ever give to Repay her for her mentorship and advice that began in high school and lasted a lifetime. There is no amount of gratitude that I could ever provide to Repay her. My family has never owned stocks, never invested, never taken risks, and has never seen life much outside of our small town of Arnold.
I come from very humble beginnings, and my family has never done any of those things either. I didn’t take my first flight until I was a senior in high school, and up until that point, the farthest I’d ever been was to Branson, Missouri, on vacation with my family. Although, by the time I was 13 or 14, I had read every book on Business, Marketing, Investing, and Finance that was in our local library, I had not experienced much of what I had read about and had schooled myself in through self education.
