Friends for 48+ years with so many memories of celebrations, family get-togethers, theater, traveling, dining out, and just hanging out, are a few of the great times we shared and memories we will cherish.  Judy touched so many lives with her generosity, good nature and spirit. She will be in our hearts forever. Our love to the Zager family.

Love, Barbara & Jerry

So very shocked and saddened to hear of Judy's passing. We had some crazy fun times through my house hunting, sales and closings years ago. I thought so highly of her, this news hits hard.
We shared our deep love for animals and animal stories. She gave me my unbelievably intelligent and strong willed late calico cat, Whimsy. She actually found Whims as an abandoned, unweaned kitten and formula fed her for weeks until she was older (even though she was always a dog person at heart and a little out of her element)....then she called me trying to find a home for the little one (she was afraid Ira's bearded collie was going to eat the kitten). It was so special , she did not know I had just lost my beloved calico .
It was not unusual for Judy to stop and pick up some poor abandoned animal on the side of the road! She was, indeed, a kind soul.
Unfortunately , we had not met up lately (only emails), I was not aware of her serious health issues.
My love, thoughts and blessings go out to Ira and all the family members. Judy was a very special lady and I cherish memories of times we shared.

Judy and Ira were their the first couple I met when I moved to Florida in 1967.
I have spent many weekends with my sons at the Zager’s and always felt like home. We have gone on vacations together, and had great times.
Judy will be missed . I am glad I had the privilege With my wife Paula of attending Ira and Judy grandson Ethan Bar Mitzvah .
I remember us celebrating their 50 anniversary.
Please accept our condolences on this sad occasion.
Love ,
Isaac and Paula

I am so sorry, Ira; you guys are family to me. I wish I could be there. I have so many happy memories of Judy from the office, I remember one time you guys hosted a surprise birthday party for my a Mom so many years ago. I know she loved you and I can picture them together now reminiscing. Please give my condolences to everyone, know that I am with you in heart and spirit.

I was devastated to hear about Judy. She and her brother grew up with my mom. In fact, Warren and I have the same birthday (I'm one year older). She was more than Aunt Judy to me. She was like a second mother. My family would spend a weekend at the Zager house occasionally and our families would take trips to places like Disney World. She will be sorely missed. Love to the Zagers.

I am saddened by the loss of Judy. I remember her almost as a second mom to me as I spent so much of my childhood at the real estate office. Judy also encouraged and inspired my love of birds and our love of animals was how we connected as friends despite the generational differences. I will miss her but will always keep fond memories. My deepest and sincerest sympathies to the family, to Ira, Warren, and Josh. All best wishes and much love to you.
