Judy was a great colleague and coworker. She was always calm, kind, helpful and smiling. In her last years at Moraine, I would often meet her walking on her lunch hour in her gym shoes. I knew we were losing someone valuable, but I hoped for her happy retirement. Now I miss her even more.

There have always been many fine employees at Moraine Valley, but surely Judy was one of the very best. May she rest in peace.

Judy taught me so much from her wealth of knowledge, as did her mother. I had the privilege of working with each of them. My sincere condolences to her family.

What a wonderful, patient woman Judy was. I had the pleasure of working with her for 30 years. She was always helpful and loved to share a story about her dogs. You will be missed Judy!
