Gursky, Judith "Judy" - Los Alamos  
Judith Gursky (Judy) passed away on April 8, 2015 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, three weeks short of her 88th birthday. She was the matriarch of a large, loving family who adored her and benefitted from her surpassing intellect, common sense and sense of humor. Judy was born in New York City on May 3, 1927 to Henry L. Cassidy and Gladys Carleton Cassidy. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Martin, and her brother Carleton Cassidy. Judy was raised in several suburbs of New York City. She would regale her family with childhood stories of going into the city with her mother to Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic, the Museum of Modern Art and to see the Nutcracker Ballet at Christmas time, and of spending a summer in her youth working for the New York Public Library while living with girlfriends in an upper Manhattan apartment. At the age of 16, Judy graduated from Irvington High School and attended Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. In 1943 she was one of the finalists of the prestigious national Westinghouse Science Talent Search. In 1947, she received her Bachelor of Science in Physics, with honors, joining a conspicuously small number of female physics majors in the country. In a decision that was characteristic of her pioneering and adventurous spirit, Judy took a job at the Oak Ridge National Lab in Tennessee, picking up and leaving everyone and everything she knew. She worked at Oak Ridge in the physics division, located in the old original reactor building, from 1947 to 1951. She was recruited by the Physics Department at Vanderbilt University and enrolled there in 1951 to pursue graduate work. It was at Vanderbilt she met her husband, Martin. They were married on August 23, 1952. Judy subsequently received her Master's Degree in Physics. In 1953, their first child, Michael, was born. In 1954 the new family moved to Los Alamos. After the birth of her second child, Philip, Judy began work at LANL, eventually specializing in making targets for linear accelerators, in a career that spanned nearly 40 years, collaborating with many great experimental physicists and engineers worldwide. Judy had three more children (Kathryn, Paula and Daniel) while still pursuing her career. Judy was an accomplished pianist and a singer in the Choral Society. Until earlier this year, she was an active participant in her monthly piano group. Judy also displayed artistic skill in photography, drawing, oil painting and wood carving. For most of her life, but particularly in retirement, Judy read more books in a month than most people do in a year. She travelled widely in Europe, Israel and Thailand with Martin. Judy could often be seen walking and jogging the canyons near her house, riding her bike around Barranca Mesa, playing tennis up at the Middle School Courts and swimming at the Golf Course Pool and later at the Walkup Pool. In her more than 60 years in Los Alamos, she was active in numerous organizations and community activities. Her involvement included the Los Alamos Jewish Center (founding member), Hadassah, Los Alamos Heart Council, Los Alamos Choral Society, Los Alamos Concert Association, Los Alamos Historical Society, Los Alamos Arts Council, Unitarian Church, International Nuclear Target Development Society (founding member), American Association of University Women, Los Alamos Senior Center and even a stint as president of the venerable Golf Course Swimming Pool Assn. Anyone acquainted with Judy could not help being impressed by the incredible range of her interests and knowledge. She was one of the women who truly helped pave the way for generations of women who have followed her in the sciences. She always found time to advise and mentor young women. However, through it all, the driving passion of Judy and Martin's adult life was their family. The family gratefully acknowledges the indelible impact of her on each of their lives. Judy is survived by her five children, Michael (Diana Bittern), Philip, Kathryn (Richard Bolton), Paula Lindgren (Tim Lindgren) and Daniel (Jane Feller), as well as grandchildren Alex Morosco Gursky, Leila Bittern, Michael Lindgren, Jonathan Lindgren, Josephine Lindgren, David Lindgren, Emily Gursky and step-grandchild Vanessa Morosco. Former daughters-in-law Sibley Morosco and Kay Brown fondly recall her. Judy is also survived and is remembered by her husband Martin's brother's surviving family. Judy will be interred at Guaje Pines Cemetery, beside her beloved husband, in a private ceremony. A public memorial celebrating her life and accomplishments will be held at the Betty Erhart Senior Center on May 23, 2015 at 2:00 PM. Because Judy was a supporter, contributor and leader in so many local community institutions, donations may be made, in lieu of flowers, to the Los Alamos Heart Council, the Sanctuary at Canyon Ridge Hospice, the Friends of the Shelter, or any favorite group or organization supporting the needs of the community.

Redus was born in Bulo, Oklahoma on January 8, 1930 and graduated from Sayre High School, Sayre, Oklahoma, in 1947 and from Panhandle A&M College in 1951. He entered the Army in 1951 and was honorably discharged at the rank of Corporal in 1954. Redus then attended the University of Oklahoma where he received his PhD in Physics in 1960. Upon graduating, Redus accepted a staff member position at Los Alamos National Laboratories, performing research in a number of areas, including high-altitude weapons testing, photo-chemistry, laser spectroscopy, and solar energy. Redus was regarded by his peers as a knowledgeable scientist and a reliable co-worker. A long-time member of the Los Alamos Church of Christ, Redus was known and loved by his church family as a frequent song leader and teacher. In the 70's, he and Pat developed an innovative cradle-roll Sunday school program for children 10-24 months' of age. He continued to teach the class to preschoolers, including the children of some of its original alumni, for many years. For over 20 years, Redus taught bible classes at the county jail and was recognized with a plaque upon his retirement for his service. Redus was a Los Alamos resident for 50 years. In 2011, he moved to Katy, TX (near Houston). In Katy, he was known on a first-name basis by the many neighbors he met on his daily walks. Redus loved music of every kind. When he was not playing his harmonica or leading the congregation in singing, he was singing baritone with local barbershop groups, including the Lads of Enchantment and Diamond Drive. He was a gentle, generous soul who never hesitated to offer help when he saw a need. His faith was a mainstay of his life, and there are many people who benefited from his kind example of Christian love. There will be a memorial service for Redus at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 4th, at the Los Alamos Church of Christ (2323 Diamond Drive, Los Alamos).
