I will never forget the warm welcome Judy extended to me as a shy incoming Freshman at University of North Texas, Fall 1989. She was instrumental in growing our young chapter. Rush was the best with Judy! She will be deeply missed.

Judy had a wonderful sense of humor could come up with a witty retort instantly. I always admired her ability to organize and motivate her friends and use her" friendly persuasion " to encourage you to do things you did not even know you wanted to!
I will miss her immensely.

I will always have fond memories of Judy by the pool. She seemed happiest surrounded by her family. She was like a second mother to me for many years as Beth and I were best friends. I ate her food, swam in her pool and slept on her sofa so many times. She taught me to make my favorite Christmas cookies even though I was never able to duplicate the recipe! I loved Judy for her honest quit whit. She will be forever loved and remembered.

I have so many fond memories of Judy. She was the epitome of what I think every Kappa wants to be, she was caring, outgoing, fiercely loyal, always giving of her time and resources. She is a part of my best college memories. I pray that God will wrap her family up in his loving arms and give them comfort and peace.
