Judy and were good friends at Sulphur High School and became closer as the years passed by. We graduated in 1963 and attended all of the class reunions through the years since. We became closer friends through her first cousin Sharon Babaz, and we three would visit often and go out to eat together. We really enjoyed one another.
Judy really loved The Lord and loved praying for others. I live in Arlington, Texas, and Judy was faithful to call me and let me know if/when anything was going on with our classmates.
She dearly loved Bill and all her family and shared what was happening in their lives.
I will miss Judy tremendously and will miss her sweet smile, kindness, and loving prayers.

Judy was employed at Southwest Credit Union formerly PPG Employees Credit Union. She worked in the accounting department and spearheaded many of the accounting department policies and procedures . I had the pleasure of working with her for several years. She was truly a person with a beautiful heart. I loved her chocolate and carrot cakes; she made with love. We pray together , laugh together and even cried together. She was kind to people and she loved people. She loved her family with her whole heart. She had a heart of gold and will be truly missed.

Loved Judy so much and Bill. Will always remember how kind and thoughtful she was when my husband Clyde was so I'll. She made delicious banana pudding and other goodies too, bringing them by the house and stopping in for a visit. Big prayers for Bill and the family🙏 Amazing Grace how sweet the sound🎶

Ms. Judy you will truly be missed. Although we did not talk often, when we did, we made up the time. Thank you for being a loving and caring friend. You were always so kind and never had a bad thing to say. Our Heavenly Father has wrapped you in his arms and you are at peace. I will miss you my dear friend.

I had the pleasure of working with Judy for several years at the credit union. She always had a smile and took her job very seriously. I will remember her banana pudding and homemade rolls that we all loved. She loved her family so much and was very proud of each and everyone of them. She will be missed.

Judy will be so very missed. I will remember her laughter and her always having a kind word. Her banana pudding with the homemade meringue will be such a wonderful memory. She seemed to have little pieces of wisdom that she would share and I was so appreciative. Mitch and I are giving each and every one of you a big hug.
