Judith Jacoby Stone Obituary
Judith Jacoby Stone La Jolla Judith Jacoby Stone, 84, a resident of Fairfield, CT, died peacefully at home on August 28, 2017, after a six-month battle with lung cancer. Born June 30, 1933, Judy was raised in the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum, where her father Aaron Jacoby, an orphan himself, was the director. Judy and her older brother, Donald, grew up in the company of hundreds of orphan "brothers" and "sisters." She graduated from the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in 1950, and from Mount Holyoke College in 1954, where she majored in philosophy. Judy worked briefly in publishing, before marrying Marshall Stone, a television director, and moving from Riverdale NY to Stamford, CT. There she began the project of her life: raising a family and creating a beautiful and comfortable home for them. She was a longtime resident of New Canaan, CT and then Mystic, CT, and worked for several years as a paralegal at Cummings and Lockwood in Stamford. Once an Olympic alternate in figure skating, Judy also loved horseback riding, tennis, and bridge. She was a member of the Roxbury Club in Stamford and the Fairfield Hunt Club. She is survived by three sons, Jonathan, of New Canaan, CT, Harlan, of Darien, CT, and Michael, of La Jolla, CA; their spouses; and eight loving grandchildren. Services are private. Donations in her name can be made to Norwalk Grassroots Tennis Association. Please sign the guest book online at legacy.com/obituaries/ lajollalight . June 30, 1933 - August 28, 2017
