Beloved wife of David for 28 years. Loving mother of Adam, Greg and Cory who continued to make her proud every single day. Judy was adopted at birth by the late Loretta and Bud Belding. In 1994 she met and quickly became wonderful friends with her birth mother Barb MacNeil, all of New Brunswick. Dear half- sister of Robin MacNeil.
