Dave, Ann, Dave,Jr., & families- Please know you are in our hearts and prayers. Judy was such bright shining star in this world. I know David appreciated the great meals that she would bring you guys when you worked together in Martinsburg! We still laugh about one night in particular when your dinner was interrupted by an unannounced visitor.
You family will forever be in our hearts. I know Judy is resting happily in God’s loving arms. Peace be with you.

Oh Judy, what can I say. I went to school and graduated with Judy. Since then we have worked together on our Class Reunions. She was so sweet, funny and compassionate about everyone, especially Dave and their children. What a shame to lose such a wonderful friend and fighter. Love you Judy and may you rest in God's arms in eternal life.

Sending my heartfelt condolences to the family. Judy not only was a classmate at Martinsburg High but also a teammate on the Rebels girls softball team many moons ago. Will always remember my dad and I picking her up for practice and games and also remember her accident that happened during a "freak" wind storm at one of our practices. That was one scary ride to the hospital. Praying that God will provide the peace that only He can during this difficult time in your lives.

I knew Judith Copenhaver as "Miss Judy". My grandson was one of many children that she cared for during her years of child care. The environment was a loving one thanks to her. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time. Hold fast to the wonderful memories of a lovely wife, mother and grandmother.
