My deepest sympathy goes out to Judy's family & also to Gretchen's. I remember Judy being the Life Guard at Maple Crest's pool. I grew-up more with Mike & Gretchen. Life is not fair, when it takes our love ones away. Truly Sorry & God Bless...

My condolences to all in JUDY's family. I was hoping she would have attended our/her 50th class reunion. She was a beautiful and funny gal while in High School I'm sure she was just as in later life. GOD BLESS

My deepest sympathy to all of Judy's siblings, certainly a life taken to soon! It's been years since I have seen any of you so reading Judy's obit today and seeing that you had recently lost Gretchen as well was very much a shock. Truly I am very sorry for your losses! May they Rest In Peace.
