I loved this wonderful woman and I will miss her dearly even though it was a short time when I met her as I was married to her son Jerry Dale. Now she has her Angel wings and is flying high and watching over all that knew her. Prayers for the family. I wish I could of been there to celebrate her life.

I met Judy in 1981 when we both worked for Orgill Bros. in Memphis, TN. She was my best friend for many years. I am sorry for your loss.

I met Judy in 1964 when we worked together at Nationwide Insurance Co, in Memphis, TN. We became good friends, and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding to Paul Halkiades February 14, 1970. We left Memphis in 1970 and moved to Baltimore, MD with Paul's job. Through the years we kept in touch through cards and letters, but as time went on and we had children we lost touch with each other. I was so sorry to hear the news that Judy had died. Our sympathy in the loss of Judy. God rest her soul, and may her memory be eternal. Love, Ann Montgomery Halkiades and Paul Halkiades Knoxville, TN

Judy & I met in 1986 where we worked together in the purchasing department for years. Judy was such a comfort to me when my dad passed away in 1990 , just a couple of months before Jennifer passed. We bonded even more during that time. I would like to extend my condolences to Judy’s family and to her dear friend Martha. Judy will be missed

My dear sweet Judy, now you are at peace and your pain and suffering is over. No one goes thru this world without some pain and suffering and you certainly have had your share, but thru it all, you kept the faith and always had that smile that we all know so well. Now you have joined your loving family that have gone on before you.

I had the great honor of meeting Judy in 1966 where we worked together in Memphis, Tennessee and low and behold we found out we were neighbors and were two blocks from each other. Judy and I instantly became friends and we have remained friends for 54 years and I will miss her dearly and our long phone chats and I can just hear that laugh of hers now. Judy was angelic and never complaining thru the hard times. Judy will remain in my heart forever. Although we were miles away, we always managed to see each other and talk almost monthly and stay in touch and share pictures, etc.

My dear friend I will miss you and will see you again one day. May God bless your family and give them faith and hope to get thru these trying times.

With love and prayers,
Lillie and Paul Simon and family
Orlando, Florida

Beautiful picture of Judy.
She & I worked together during Jennifer’s St. Jude’s diagnosis, treatments & death. She exhibited so much strength & courage during that time. She lifted spirits when we were sad for her.
Judy had a sweet, sweet soul. I never saw her without every hair in place, all makeup applied, & a beautiful smile beaming.
I’ll miss Judy but rejoice she is reunited with Jennifer & her loved ones.
God bless all of you.
