Aunt Judy was a wonderful, giving person. I will always remember her kindness and laughter. I, also, have fond memories of her telling it like it was. She will be greatly missed by every life she touched.

Judy is our Sister in-law, she was a
kind loving person to us and would give
us the shirt off of her back if she thought we needed it. We will miss her very much, may she rest in peace with our Lord in Heaven

I have known Judy for 5 years and we had really good visits when she would come into the Good Samaritan Shop. Since my sister was going through cancer therapy also we would share medical things and hugs. I will miss her.
