The blessing of having Miss Judy in my life and my family's lives at ETES will always be treasured. She was dedicated in all she did and compassionately cared for children, staff, and parents. Thousands of children, my son included, will always remember her amazing cinnamon rolls, big chewy cookies, and huge chocolate peanut butter bars, all made with love. She decorated the cafeteria and dressed up for special occasions, enjoying every moment to make lunchtime fun and memorable for everyone. Miss Judy always made every person, adult and child, feel special. She was a joy and I will greatly miss her.
