  • Notes 
    • HILLIARD, Ohio - Dr. Stephen Michael Judah transitioned from this world to eternity at 5:25 p.m. Friday, June 21, 2008, at 59 years of age. Steve died in his upper Arlington home surrounded by his loving family. Steve was born May 17, 1949, in Vincennes, Ind., to Bill and Jewell Judah. He met Sharon Bonnie at a Christian youth convention in Winona Lake, Ind., in 1967; Sharon was 14 and Steve was 16. The two fell deeply in love, and were married on June 16, 1971 in Columbus. Steve earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and religion from Wabash College, as well as a master's degree and Ph.D. in psychology from the Ohio State University. Ordained as a minister in the Free Methodist Church, Steve served as a pastor at Northwest United Methodist Church in Columbus and then worked at the Milhon Medical Clinic as a therapist for several years. Licensed as a psychologist in 1983, he founded and directed Psych-Care, one of the largest multidiscipline clinical and counseling practices in Ohio and emerged as a leader in the field of relationships for both couples and businesses. Through leading hundreds of couples through healing and restoration, he developed a simple method for relational wholeness that he called the essential disciplines. This method has been utilized nationwide by multiple organizations and businesses, including The Dibble Institute, an organization dedicated to helping young people learn the skills necessary for successful relationships and marriages. Dr. Donald M. Joy, of Asbury Theological Seminary, described Steve as "a lieutenant wrestling in the front lines of marriages coming unglued." Steve served as the executive director of the Columbus Marriage Coalition, a local nonprofit organization that encourages healthy marriages through education and advocacy. In November of 2005, Steve and his wife, Sharon became charter members of the Marriage CoMission, an organization that serves together as an allied force to support the marriage movement in America. In 2006, Steve authored a book titled "Staying Together When an Affair Pulls You Apart," which was published by InterVarsity Press. Steve is survived by his wife, Sharon, of 37 years; his daughters and sons-in-law, Heather and Daniel Wood, Hillary and Graham Rouse and Holly Judah; sister, Darlene Stephens of Bruceville, Ind.; sisters and brothers-in-law, Linda and Barry Jackson, Rebekah and Bill Gramann and David and Sara Bonnie, Jr.; mother-in-law, Helen Bonnie; Aunt Marvel Ransford of Vincennes; Uncle Dale Bonnie; and many dear cousins, nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
