Judith M. Conlin

Judith M. Conlin, 71, of Carbondale, died Sunday at home. She was the wife of Edmund C. Conlin. The couple had been married for 36 years.

Born in Carbondale, she was the daughter of the late John and Helen Doyle Moran. She was a graduate of Benjamin Franklin High School, Carbondale. Judy had been employed by Specialty Records/WEA, Olyphant, before retirement. She was also a co-owner of the Fixit Shoppe, Carbondale.

She enjoyed traveling to the New England states, attending balloon festivals and, when they owned their own airplane, traveling to "fly-in" events. She enjoyed vacations with cousins, Bill and Diane, and especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Judy fought her disease with grace, dignity and humor. She passed away peacefully.
