Obituary of Judith McCaughan

Judith Vose McCaughan died peacefully in her home on May 1st. Born in Schenectady, N.Y., in 1928, to Charles Henry Vose and Rena Eloise Moses Vose, she spent her girlhood in Collingswood, N.J. In 1941, Judy, her sister Cynthia and her parents moved to Princeton, where her father worked as an engineer for RCA. Judy graduated from Princeton High School in 1945, and attended Trenton State Teachers College, now known as the College of New Jersey. In 1948, she married Wesley Adams McCaughan. She began her career in real estate in the late 1960's, and was the first employee of the former firm of Peyton Callaway. Until her retirement at the age of 82 last year, she was a broker at the firm of N.T. Callaway. Judy was a gardener, and an avid reader. She enjoyed assembling puzzles, knitting, and spending time with her family in two places that were very special to her, Rindge, N.H., and Long Beach Island, N.J. Her greatest joy was spending time with the family she leaves behind: her husband, Wesley; her three daughters, Wendy Jolley, and her husband, Michael, of Princeton; Carey Hoover, and her husband, Stuart, of Lawrenceville; and Marny McCaughan, of Riverside, Illinois. She was the beloved grandmother of six granddaughters and one grandson. Burial at Princeton Cemetery was private. A service of joy and remembrance will be held on Monday, May 14th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Princeton University Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Princeton Hospice, 208 Bunn Drive, Princeton, N.J., 08540.
