Witty, clever and independent, she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, reading her daily newspaper, and watching Jeopardy and sports on television.

A truly beautiful, fun, witty, happy person.

I personally had a very close relationship with Judy who was like a surrogate Mother to me, always including me in the family meals, holidays, and making me feel like one of the kids.. In fact she called me Katie's twin.

I will miss her straight forward character as well as her
direct approach to life.
RIP dear Judy.
