Barbara Smith Studwell
October 7, 1929 – June 16, 2021
Known by her family and friends as “Maudie”, Barbara S Studwell passed away peacefully on
June 16, 2021, surrounded by enough love to blanket the universe.
Barbara was so much to so many – a daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother, aunt, and above all a friend. Fiercely loyal, generous and loving, “Maudie” left
behind a legacy that will live on into eternity. And those who loved her and were loved by her
will never forget her as she left a huge piece of her heart with everyone near and dear to her.
Barbara is survived by her husband of 72 years, James B (JB) Studwell. Four children Bill
Studwell (Candy), Scott Studwell (Jenny), Andy Studwell Alstad (Greg), and Sally Studwell
Fedolfi (Mike). Seven beautiful grandchildren – Jason Studwell, Matthew Studwell, Jessie
Nalezny (Nick), Samantha Studwell, Jack Studwell, Drew Fedolfi and Marshall Fedolfi. Five
adoring great grandchildren – Logan Studwell, Penny May Ryan Bauer, JJ Nalezny, Janie
Nalezny and Jackson Nalezny. And her dog Lundy who would have walked through fire for her.
A memorial service for Barbara will be held at a later date this year. All contributions can be
made in her honor to either the First Presbyterian Church of Evansville, IN or the Wesselman
Woods in Evansville, IN.
