Judie worked as a nurse's aide for St. Marys hospital for many years, as a bus contractor for St. Marys Schools for 18 years, as well as cooking and waitressing and raising her children. She enjoyed spending time with family, especially her children and grandchildren. She loved playing cards, board games, going to the casino, binge-watching her favorite shows and playing Candy Crush. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She always put others first and would give you the shirt off her back. She could strike up a conversation with any stranger. She will be greatly missed by a great number of people. God gained the most beautiful Angel.
