    We have lost a beautiful woman. Judy has meant so much to me and I will miss her terribly.
    Her family meant everything to her, especially her grandson Evan. He was the reason she would put a smile on her face even when she felt she could smile no longer. Though I wish she could be with us forever, I know Judy is in a special place, feeling no pain and will be watching Evan grow up.
    We love you Judy.
    Ann & Doug

    I am sorry for your loss. I had an opportunity to speak with her in the few months prior to her recent decline in health. I wanted to share with Tom how much Judith appreciated and admired the way you cared for her though all of this. She said that to me several times. I hope this brings you some comfort.

    I am very sorry this time had to come and Judy will be greatly missed. I only wish I could have had the chance to spend more time with her and hope that I may at least get more time with the rest of her family. My heart goes out to all of those she had in her life, for I know she will be greatly missed by all. From the little time I had to spend getting to know Judy, she had a very special way of making those around her feel welcomed and was a very warm and wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers go out to all she left behind.

    How lucky I was to have Judy as a sister. She cared so much for everyone in her life. I did not get to see her as often as I would have liked, but knowing she was in the world made it so much better. I love her and will miss her. Big HUGS !!!
    .. Your ‘baby’ sister

    As the days go by after losing my sister, I feel so hurt but am comforted by the thought that she is much better off then we are. To my best friend Tom, I am there for you whatever the need! To the rest of my family, I hope we “connect” more often.

    Love you all,

    Judy & I spent alot of time doing Girl Scouts together. I haven’t seen her in quite some time now but She was our daughter Miranda’s Girl Scout leader. Miranda went to school in Forestville with Judy & Tom’s daughter Monica. We always had our GS Leaders meetings at her home in Forestville. She was a wonderful person to know . She always had a smile on her face & enjoyed life & her family. She will truly be missed by all. I’m sure she will be watching over her wonderful family from Heaven. RIP Judy. Christie & Wally Ward

    I was just going to leave a comment for someone who just passed away when I saw Judy’s name! I was totally shocked! The last time i spoke to her was after her mother died which i also was not aware of. I didnt know Judy was even sick. Im so sorry. She was a really nice person She took good care of her mother and would tell my mother that she was going to take care of her too!! My mother just loved her! GOD bless you Judy and your family .
