Judy epitomized living and loving life to the fullest! Every negative became a positive. She squeezed every ounce of life while on this earth! I can see her presenting herself at the pearly gates with her beautiful smile. “Here I am!” Heaven truly gained an angel!

Judy was truly an angel on earth. She devoted her life to the wellbeing of others and she did it selflessly. Judy helped multiple friends and family members of mine with various impairments and her kindness will never be forgotten. She was a true friend and one of the toughest women I know. Her laughter, her fierce passion for life and loved ones, her dedication, and her conversation, her hugs, her smile, just to name a few, will be forever treasured and forever missed. Thank you Judy for being my hero. With great love,
Krystle

I only knew her a short time. In the short time it was obvious she was a wonderful person, full of life and a great person to know. May she R I P and may the GOOD LORD be with the family and friends

My deepest sympathies to the Neal Family. Judy was one of the most decent human beings I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She was the ultimate joyful soldier, fighting on with spirit and determination regardless of the odds. If a family is lucky, it has that one person who is the glue that holds them together with boundless love. That was Judy. She stood up for her family, her co-workers, for women and for her community. She loved her family, her church and sports. She consoled others when her own pain was greater. She marched for justice, knocked on doors for candidates, and delivered water to shut-ins during the toxic chemical spill. I've lost a piece of my heart and the community has lost a treasure.
