Judy, A wonderful, caring educator and a great mentor to me when I began my teaching career in Chelmsford. Her math mind and her love of teaching always shined brightly. Thank you for all your years of dedication and commitment to the teaching profession. It was an honor to call you friend and colleague.

She was a woman with a sharp mind, and a wicked dry sense of humor. She sang a lovely alto in our church choir. One of her famous quilts hangs on my wall. She beat me in a Texas Hold Em tournament (all those math skills!) because she had a full house with 3 Queens, and I had one with 3 Jacks, and had foolishly gone all-in. She had a running bet about lottery tickets that no one won because, well, math. We spoke of her husband and his likely French Canadian ancestry because his last name was really LeBlanc. I had never met him, but could tell through her enduring love for him that he was a wonderful man. It was great that her heart was big enough to claim so many as family who were not blood kin.

Our family always enjoyed spending time with you. You were always up for a fun game or math puzzle, and made a mean batch of baked beans! Your personality and quick laugh made you easy to be with. We have a quilt you made on our couch at home that reminds us of you frequently. Thank you for sharing your life and love with so many people.
