Statement from the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association about Mrs. Judith Wilson Grant

MOUNT VERNON, VA — It is with great sorrow that the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association announces the passing of Mrs. Judith Wilson Grant on June 14, 2020. Mrs. Grant was the sixth Vice Regent for Colorado and served on the Board of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association with distinction since 2017.  

A lifelong educator, Mrs. Grant was a gracious supporter of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association's education mission and the George Washington Teacher Institute. She often wrote personal letters to teachers participating in the Teacher Institute, sharing her passion for education and the founding era.

A flag flew at half-staff over Mount Vernon in honor of her service to Mount Vernon.

She is survived by her husband, Newell, of 49 years, and her four children and their families: Margaret Grant Mitchell and Scott; Will Grant and Claire Antoszewski; Newell Grant, Jr. and Helena; Caroline Grant Waddell and Frederick; and five grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, charitable donations can be made in her name to Central City Opera, Mount Vernon, and Denver Botanic Gardens.
