Obituary of Judith Malejs

Judith “Judy” Anne Cronkwright-Littleboy-Malejs was a caring daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She passed away on January 30th, 2022 in her home surrounded by family. Her battle with cancer in recent months showed her courage in facing life challenges with a smile, strength, humor, compassion, and love.


Judy was born on February 10th, 1942 to Ernest and Marion Cronkwright of Syracuse, NY.


Judy had several jobs along her journey and treasured working at Jennings Group, Inc in Eugene where she retired after 25 years.


Judy treasured time spent with family and friends. She had a zest for life and it was contagious. She loved to sing!  Anyone who knew Judy was touched and inspired by her kindness, humor, warmth, and love.  Her smile and determination to see any obstacle through will be greatly missed. She was often described as a “beautiful soul.” 


Judy is survived by her son Richard Raines (Kate), grandchildren Addison, Charlotte and William Raines of Orchard Park, NY, her daughter Amy Littleboy-Price (Willie), granddaughters Jacy and Samantha Price of Eugene, OR, daughter Aleksandra Malejs of Buffalo NY, sister Patricia Cronkwright of Bella Vista, AK, first husband Richard Littleboy of Eugene, OR, as well as her extended family, an abundance of friends, and beloved cats. She is reunited in heaven with her loving husband Aivess Malejs, her parents, and her brothers Jim, Jack, and Billy Cronkwright. 


Thank you Judy for teaching us about unconditional love, forgiveness, honor in serving others, selflessness, sacrifice, and the importance of family. You are truly, whole heartedly, and always loved and will be forever missed. 


A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for 1:00-3:00pm on Saturday, February 19th, 2022 at the Eugene Faith Center located at 1410 W.13th Ave.  In lieu of flowers, please do something nice for someone in her honor.
