Judy enjoyed her weekly luncheons with the “Lunch Bunch” and absolutely loved all animals. She was always willing to help her neighbors by caring for their pets when needed. Judy spent countless hours watching hummingbirds and had many feeders around her house. Anyone who knew her would agree that Judy was full of life. Above all, she was an awesome wife, mother, grandmother and friend. When it came to her family, she was selfless and loving. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
