Born in Milwaukee on November 8, 1923 the daughter of the late Ruth (nee Murphy) and Henry Douglass Lindsay. Judy spent much of her life in Milwaukee and in the Village of Oconomowoc Lake. She was a graduate of Wheaton College in Massachusetts and applied her serious intellect, enthusiasm for reading, and lifelong love for nature in her environmental activism. Judy was a talented artist, freelance sketching and watercolor rendering of natural subjects. She was a long time active member of the First Unitarian Church, and incorporated her values and talent in her work as a docent at the Milwaukee Public Museum. She will be deeply missed. Judy often said: "To seek what is true, to love what is kind, and walk gently on the earth, for it is the only home we know". A well attended and very fitting memorial service was held on Friday, January 16, at 11:00 AM, at St. John's on the Lake, 1840 N. Prospect Ave., Milwaukee and was followed by a lovely reception.
