Judith Anne Brandenstein, affectionately known as Judy,  passed away on Monday, April 1, 2024 at home of 64 years in Logansport, Indiana.
Judith was born to Robert H. Vaughn and Helen L. Vaughn in Earl Park, Indiana on May 19, 1939. 
The oldest of seven, Judy's life was one of service, beginning with her education at Earl Park High School in 1957 where she was actively involved in the Glee Club, Class officers, and School plays. After high school, Judy worked for the FBI before moving to Logansport. She was hired as a paralegal for a private practice attorney and then as a paralegal at the law firm of Hanna, Small, Sabatini, Becker & Tribbett for the bulk of her professional career year.
Judy was married to Larry Ebel in 1959, to John (Jack) Brandenstein in 1971, and to Richard Borders in 1989. Judy was a devout Christian and very active in her church. She was a strong, independent woman, yet very caring and compassionate. Her gracious and kind spirit will be cherished memories by her family and friends.
Predeceased by her father and mother, Robert H. and Helen L. Vaughn, her brother Robert (Bobby) Vaughn Jr., and her great niece Destiny Vaughn.

She also leaves behind many cousins, great nieces, and great nephews, along with a large extended family who will deeply miss her as they honor and uphold her memory.
Judith loved the beach and the warmth of the sun. She requested that her ashes be spread in the Atlantic Ocean. Her remains will be flown to Florida where a small private memorial service will be held to honor her request.
Judith Anne Brandenstein will be remembered as a loving sister and friend. We take comfort in knowing that Judy is now at peace praising the Lord surrounded by His light.
