Camden - Judith Marion Mahler was born on August 1, 1944, in Saco, Maine, to Edmund W. and Mary F. Hoctor. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Maine, Orono in 1966. In 1967, Judith married her husband of fifty-four years, Theodore (Ted) Mahler. In 1981, Judith came to know her Lord as Savior. Judith’s life was characterized by her sacrificial love for and dedication to her family. She and her husband were active members in their church and taught Sunday School for several decades. Judith cared for her quadriplegic son Tim for over thirty years, enabling him to serve the Lord in extensive ministry throughout the country. She also homeschooled her granddaughter Lena, who she and her husband raised as their own. After a long and difficult battle with cancer, Judith was called home to be with her Lord on December 3, 2021.
Judith is survived by her husband Theodore W. Mahler, her three children Dr. Timothy W. Mahler, Katherine L. Martinez, Kimberlee L. Pero, her granddaughter Lena E. Mahler, four more grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and her sisters Susan F. Hoctor, Sally F. Hoctor, and Ellen C. Hoctor.
