LAHM--Judy Kreston, on December 23, 2009. Beloved wife of David. Devoted mother of Betsy Shankin and her husband T.J. Morehouse. Ever warm and affectionate co-parent with Robert Shankin. Cherished grandmother of Rachel and Eli. Loving sister of Tom and Kay Cottle and Howard and Sherry Wilder. Loving aunt of Claudia, Jason and Sonya and their families. Judy extended the musical and healing genius of her parents. She was quite well known in New York as a uniquely communicative cabaret singer. She risked her own health at the Trade Center site to give much-needed counsel to workers searching the wreckage. Her family and the partners in her many passionately nurtured friendships mourn her absence. When Judy was on your side, compassion and help were always at the ready. Funeral service Monday, December 28, 11:30am at Frank E. Campbell, 1076 Madison Ave., at 81st St.
The Guest Book is expired.
