Judith Kathleen Mylan Tucker Dundervill entered eternal peace on September 5, 2023.
She was born on February 23, 1941, in Detroit Lakes, MN, to Donald James Mylan and Goldie Hazleton Mylan Tucker Hoff. Judy spent her early childhood in upstate Minnesota before traveling the world with her mother and adoptive father, Air Force Major Lee Noble Tucker. After graduating from high school in London, England, in 1959, she returned to Minnesota to begin her career. It was shortly thereafter, while visiting her parents in Charleston, SC, that she met First Lt. Robert Frank Dundervill, Jr. They were married in 1961. They had three children, Lee Ann, Robert III and Beth. Bob and Judy spent their career in the Air Force traveling to, and living in, many locations ultimately ending up in the Washington, DC area where Judy began her successful career in real estate. She quickly became a fixture on the annual Million Dollar Sales Club. Her outgoing and caring nature not only allowed her to have a successful business, but it also led to many of her clients becoming lifelong friends. After raising their children, Judy and Bob relocated to the Ocean City, MD, area where Judy continued selling real estate at a high level. This area was special to Judy because of many previous family vacations and because of her love for the sun and the sand. Finally, they moved to their forever home in Virginia Beach to be closer to family.
In addition to Judy’s engaging and dynamic personality, she will also be remembered for her many talents and resourcefulness. She could: create an amazing meal from nothing, decorate on a dime, entertain a large group with ease, sew whatever was needed (including ski clothes for her kids), waterski without getting her hair wet, soothe an unhappy baby, and use her ingenuity to quickly problem solve like when she used her pantyhose to fix a broken fan belt – just to name a few! Whatever Judy did, she did with enthusiasm. Her biggest source of pride, however, were her children. She ensured that they all had opportunities to pursue their dreams.
She will be greatly missed by her family, her pet family (who could count on her for endless treats) and all who knew and loved her.
Judy was predeceased by her husband of 60+ years, Col. Robert Frank Dundervill, Jr., USAF, and her brother, Francis E. Tucker (Skip). She is survived by her daughter Lee Ann Skinker (Ben), son Robert F. Dundervill, III (Lisa), daughter Beth Marie Ripa (Frank) and brother Donald J. Tucker. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren with three more on the way, and many nieces and nephews.
She will be interred with her husband at the United States Naval Academy at a future date to be determined.
