Judith (Judy) Eagle Appel, 86, of Atlanta, died June 8, 2024, after a 10-year-long, valiant battle with cancer. Born and raised in Montgomery, Ala., Judy was predeceased by her twin sister, Joan Eagle Fuerst, and parents, Adolph J. Eagle and Roslyn Freehling Eagle. Judy is survived by her beloved husband of 63 years, Samuel Appel, and was a devoted mother and mother-in-law to Audrey Appel Cohen (Jack), Adam Appel (Mindy), and Andrea Appel Rapowitz (Joel). Judy was also a cherished grandmother to Aaron, Hannah, and Emily Appel, and Jake Cohen (Bailey Cohen) and Rachel Cohen-Noebes (Pierre-Joseph Nebens).

Judy’s legacy of love and compassion lives on not only in the hearts of her human family but also in the memories of the many beloved, four-legged rescues for whom she provided so lovingly. Judy’s journey led her to Atlanta, where she met and married Sam, with whom she would go on to raise three remarkable children.

Prior to this chapter of her life, Judy pursued her education at the University of Alabama. Judy followed in her mother’s footsteps by opening her own interior design boutique, China Cabinet Limited. With a keen eye for elegance, Judy carefully curated a unique collection of high-end products at her store.

Judy created beautiful, delicious meals and warmly hosted our Jewish holy days and Thanksgiving. Our family will deeply miss these traditions. Judy’s spirit will endure, offering inspiration and guidance to all who were blessed to have known her. Judy Eagle Appel will be deeply missed but forever remembered with love and gratitude. May her memory be a blessing.

A graveside service was held to honor Judy’s life at Arlington Memorial Park on Sunday June 9, 2024. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to www.afmda.org/heros-may or Barkvilledogrescue.org.
