Judith Day

Judith Ann Mohr Day passed away in her Winters home on Friday, November 14. She was born on September 16, 1948, in Freehold, New Jersey, to Augustus and Edna Mohr. She moved with her family to California in 1959 and graduated from Canoga Park High School in southern California.

She received her bachelors degree in mathematics from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, in 1970. She moved to Davis when she accompanied her husband, Lee Erickson, to attend graduate school in Agricultural Engineering at UC Davis.

In 1989, she married Michael Day and moved to Winters; he passed away in 1998. A member of UC Davis Quarter Century Club, Ann was employed at University Extension, Accounting and Animal Science departments before her retirement in 2002. After retirement she was recalled to help out with UCDHS fiscal matters and provided her expertise to the Departments of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Neurology, and the Orthopedic Research Lab.

Ann loved her pet dogs and cats like family. She enjoyed traveling to national parks in Canada and US. She also loved to dine out with her friends.

She is survived by her brother, Dick, of Weed, and sister, Nancy Condosta, of Rancho Cucamonga, 4 nieces and 3 nephews, and her mother-in-law, Ida Mae Day, of Des Moines, Iowa.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, November 23, at 11:00 am at Wiscombe Funeral Home, 116 D Street in Davis. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Heifer International (www.heifer.org/gift) or any charitable organization that protects animals and wildlife.

Ann was a wonderful aunt and a kind and gentle person. She was caring toward my family and I will always remember her for her kindness and affection for cats which are my favorite animal too.

Itaas been well over 20 years since I have spoken to Ann, but I remember her well and always will. I first knew her when she was around 30, a very sensitive person in this harsh world. I remember one day I arrived at her place and found her crying--her cat had caught a big grasshopper and the sight of its legs moving while its body was lodged in the cataas mouth had brought the tears. Her reaction showed her great kindness to living creatures, and it taught me to respect them so that to this day I donaat squish spiders or flies but take them outside. She taught me many things, such as be less negative and more positive, which went against my nature but was good to learn. I wish that celebrations of life would happen earlier, while someone is still alive. And I am now saddened that she and her companions can no longer enjoy the world together.

To the Mohr family, our sympathies in the passing of Ann. What a wonderful person she was; my memories of her are of a very nice person.
