When we had the daunting task of writing our mother’s last story, her obituary, we decided to write it the best we could by including her life’s journey, accomplishments, and personal touches. Here goes …

Judy Olivia Adon (Wiseman) is a child-loving, spunky, vivacious artist known for her fast-driving, sharp-tongued storytelling, comedic, partying, smiling, warm-hearted, gorgeous, and infectious-spirited woman. Judy was born in Washington DC, on March 3, 1960, to W.C. (Deceased) & Lucille Wiseman (Miller), Sr. raising Judy with her precious siblings Patricia, Barbara, and W.C., Jr. While growing up in Washington DC, Judy enjoyed drawing, fashionable clothing, big hair, and music. She was such an artist that one of her etching pieces was included in an art exhibit held at the Smithsonian. While sitting in class one day at Spingarn Senior High School, a guy approached her and said, “So, what’s your name?” That guy was Allen (Bucky) Adon. Allen and Judy would marry in 1977, the same year she graduated from Spingarn Senior High School. They had two boys from this union, Allen, Jr. (1977) and Paris (1979). The marriage lasted for 20 years, ending in divorce in 1997.

Her first job was as a cashier at Morton’s on Pennsylvania, Ave in Washington DC. While at work, she kept getting phone calls that her youngest son, Paris, couldn’t behave and would be terminated from daycare. From that point, she started her home childcare, Tots Unlimited Family Daycare. Allen Sr. and Judy would later pack up from Washington, DC, and move to Forestville, MD (Addison Road South). Judy would meet and make countless lifelong friends in Forestville through caring for almost every child in Old Towne Village and Pickwick. Judy would go on to care for children for over 40 years up until her death. While fighting and conquering cancer, she continued to work and care for children. While not just a childcare provider, Judy was an aerobics instructor and served as a former President of the Prince Georges County Child Care Association over the years. She created the childcare graduation program, which later led to a graduation ceremony that included multiple at-home childcare providers in Prince George’s County, MD. She was a socialite, a great artist, an avid shopper, partied like a rock star, and spoke her mind at every opportunity.

Judy loved fast cars, especially loud Mustangs! She loved her cars so much that she would name each vehicle; most recently, her black Mustang was affectionately named Bruce. We all knew Judy was near because of the sound of Bruce! She also loved vacationing, enjoying places like Jamacia and anywhere with a beach. She loved Charlie Brown, Chuck Brown, and music but especially Prince. She was deeply passionate about Prince, tattooing his symbol on her hand. His face was plastered on her phone, computer screens, and social media pages.

Later in life, Judy met a special friend, Deidric Crigler. He was affectionately known as Mr. Deic. Judy and Deic would remain friends until her death.

Judy transitioned from sunlight to rest at Southern Maryland Hospital in Clinton, Maryland, surrounded by family. Preceding her in death was her beloved father, W.C. Wiseman, Sr. Judy is survived by her mother, Lucille Wiseman (Miller), Washington, DC, her eldest son Allen, Jr. (Kelly) of Cleveland, OH, and her youngest son Paris (Quitiqua) of Bowie, Maryland, four beloved grandchildren, Nyla (18), Paris II (16), Kane (13), and Mattie (11); sisters, Patricia Wiseman and Barbara Burnett, and brother, W.C. Wiseman, Jr. She had a unique deep, proud, and loving relationship with her Wiseman family, whom she called “The Wiseman Clan,” this includes a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Our Mom will always be remembered as a person who did things her way and truly lived her life the way she wanted, leaving a lasting, loving impression on all of us. She had one incredible ride, and she will be missed!
