Judy was a high school and college friend of mine who turned into a lifelong chum; a dear person whose upbeat look at life was always a welcome and jovial interlude from the busy and complicated lives we built for ourselves. She was like part of my family; my Dad even helped her find her first car. Over the years we visited one another. I have a particularly fond memory of visiting her while my husband was in Vietnam. She took me to a production of Hair but she bought tickets in the last row so we wouldn't be embarrassed by the nude scene at the end! We also explored the LA garment district, the art museums, La Brea Tar Pits, and more over the years. She loved Northrup and was totally dedicated to the company in a way I think most people never grasp. She found opportunities to grow her amazing mind within that corporate culture. Though we didn't see one another often, I will miss her in my life. Hers was too short.
Sorry to hear about Judy's death. I worked as a proofreader under her leadership at Northrop Aircraft during the early '80 and we kept in touch when I moved back to Mississippi. She even came for a visit one time and we had a good time in New Orleans. Judy was well read and just about one of the smartest people I know. She was definitely the fastest reader I ever saw and could remember everything she read. I always looked forward to her Christmas letter and all the excitement she had for her brothers, sisters, cousins and other family members. She loved Minnesota and often talked about her farm and the way of life there. And her SundaySchoolLessons website was one of her favorite things. Judy will be greatly missed and I'm sure she's in the arms of God and experiencing a great rest.
Judy was a grade school classmate and friend. She was uniquely intelligent and gifted, but gregarious and friendly at all times. I regret that I didn't see her when she last visited in Minnesota . My condolences to her sisters.
I had the great pleasure of knowing Judy through her volunteer work at the Long Beach Museum of Art where she was a valued docent. My sympathy to her family members. We miss her at the Museum. She was always so positive and enthusiastic about the art program and the children's introduction to art. Docents are the face of the Museum, and Judy's smiling face and her teaching were a big contribution to the Museum's education program.
I was so sorry and surprised to hear of Judy's passing. She had come such a long way since her stroke. Condolences to her family. I worked with her for many years and considered her a good friend. May she be at peace with the Lord.
I am truly sorry to here about the passing of my long time friend and co worker Judith Haiwick, we work at Northrop Grumman for some 20 years. She was a great friend and person and co worker. I pray God peace and love the family of Judith.
