FEDER--Judith D. Beautiful and beloved wife of her devoted husband, Tapani Talo, adoring mother of Eliel and Eero, cherished daughter of Bob and Marge, loving sister to Susan, Ben, Jessica and Abigail, doting aunt of Sam, Basia, Brent, Danya, Seth, Zachariah and the late Maximillian, wonderful friend. Judy was a brilliant scholar (summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, Princeton '78), talented singer and musician, linguist, and valued manager of the New York office of Brodeur International. Initially diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2001, she fought an unceasing battle (never in remission), unwilling to cede an iota to the disease. Her own long struggle and experiences led her to conceive Patient Wisdom, a forthcoming product for the next generation of online patient communities. Her meditations on simple joys over the past nine years inspired all who knew her. Funeral Sunday 1pm. Bet Am Shalom Synagogue, 295 Soundview Ave, White Plains. Contributions may be made to the Princeton University Class of 1978 Foundation, 102 Tanglewood Lane, Newtown Square, PA 19073.
