Judy graduated from State High School. She retired from General Housewares after many years of dedicated service. Not one to let the grass grow under her feet, Judy loved to do yardwork, especially mowing her yard on her John Deere. She was fondly known by many as the “Mayor” of the trailer park. More than anything, Judy loved playing with her grandchildren and spending time with her family.

In accordance with Judy’s wishes, cremation was chosen. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared with Judy’s family at

Judy was a wonderful lady. I remember being at her house, a lot, as a teenager. I was always welcomed there and she treated me like one of her own. She was a strong woman and I always admired her for it. God bless you Judy and thank you for the love. I will always remember you fondly.
