BARRE - Judith Perry, 90, formerly of Nelson Street and Woodland Drive, died Thursday, March 3, 2011, at Mayo Healthcare in Northfield.

Born April 8, 1920, in Barre, she was the daughter of Dean and Josephine (Hovey) Perry. She graduated from Spaulding High School in 1939. Following in her mother's footsteps, Judith pursued a music degree at UVM, graduating in 1943. She taught in Craftsbury for one year before returning to Barre.

Judith taught piano to many children and adults in the Barre area. She also constructed crossword puzzles for Dell Publications.

Judith and her sister, Mary, resided on Nelson Street and Woodland Drive in Barre for many years. After Mary's death, Judith moved to The Gardens in Williamstown in 2003. In August of 2006, she moved to Mayo Healthcare in Northfield.

Judith was a lifelong member of the Barre Congregational Church and was the organist there for about 20 years. Judith's mother wrote the "Spaulding March," which Judith played for Spaulding graduations and graduation Sundays at church.

Judith is survived by several cousins. She was predeceased by her mother, father and sister Mary. Another sister, Martha, died in infancy.

A service of remembrance will be held in the Barre Congregational Church in the spring. Interment will take place in the Elmwood Cemetery in Barre at that time. There are no calling hours.
