So many of my childhood memories include Judy. She and all my "other mothers" gave us a strong dose of hugs and laughter whenever we were together. I know she will continue to smile down on us with a purring cat on her lap! May she rest in peace.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Judy’s passing. My sympathies are for Matt and Lisa and the rest of her family. I was Judy’s friend and hairdresser for over 40 years, we shared many things.She will be missed by many as well as myself. Rest in peace my friend and say hi to Al and Bill for me.

Although I hadn't seen Judy in many years, I was saddened to hear of her death. Judy was a part of my child hood. We went to North Muskegon elementary and high school together. Judy had really fun boy/girl parties even in elementary school; and her mom made the best sloppy Joes! I have fond memories of playing together. Judy was always a kind and gentle friend to all.
Sending all who loved her my deepest condolences. Cynthia Ross Berland
