Mrs. Judy was my bus driver she always made me happy on days when I felt really bad she was always there for any of her kids and was always a kind and loving spirt. I can’t say I’m not gonna miss her warm smile every morning and her fun loving spirt and the way she hyped us up before a soccer game but what I can say is I’m gonna miss her and I hope she has a great time in heaven. I love you mrs. judy you were the best bus driver ever.

I knew Judy as my sons teacher at Ten Little Indians, my son is now 47 years old. Later I worked with her as the director of Ten Little Indians, she was always pleasant and easy to work for. I am sorry to hear of her loss, my condolences to her children and her other family members. Carrolle Banks

Judy was like family to Mike and I. Over coffee or across the back fence, we’d share stories and comments on our families, no holds barred. She didn’t sugarcoat anything and that’s what we loved about her. She and Mike were gardening competitors and shared lots of tips and advice. We miss her and that funny laugh. It will be quite lonely now in our neighborhood. Rest In Peace. Mike and Vickie Mourer
