So sorry to hear of Judy's passing. I only met her a couple of times before she moved to Texas and I left Indianapolis. She was my mom's cousin ( Jean Wolfgang). I have many fond memories of Aunt Leona. Please let us know when the service will be. Perhaps I could coordinate a visit to Indy and drive over. Would love to meet all of you. God bless your family.

Our ABC Exercise Class has lost a special member. Her corner of the room will be empty without her. She was sweet and sassy and she was my friend. I loved her and will miss her dearly.

Judy had the most beautiful smile and twinkling eyes. She loved to ask what “mischief” I’d been up to and hoped for a good story. I loved her keen mind, her artistic talents and joy. I feel so grateful to have known her.
