I will miss the kids and I taking her birthday presents every year and seeing her grin ear to ear and always suprised i remembered lol ( I forget everything. She knew that and teased me about it.) Ill miss the long talks we would have about life and all the stories she would tell me about her younger years and her kids and grandkids. She loved you all so much. I will miss her advice and wisdom. I will miss how bunt and honest she was and how stong she was. Judie was like a grandmother to my kids. They will miss her so much.

  • Peggy and family,

    You’re Mom was a great, funny lady that I will always remember. She was always so kind and caring and I know this is a huge loss for your family. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers.

  • MEMORY… Judie and my mom Jeanie were at Dinos one rainy afternoon, when i showed up in a dune buggy. Totally street legal, but you could take it off road as well. hehe Long story short.. I went inside begging both of them to let me take them for a ride in the buggy. Saying i would stay on the streets. Both of them were no, no, no. Then Judie finally gave in. ( to shut me up I’m sure) So here we go, all strapped in and giving me hell that i better not get her all muddy. I remember looking back at Mom and seeing her shake her head as we pulled away. Now it had been raining, but wasn’t raining when we left. By the time we got back i thought Judie was gonna kill me. I went down to Sawyers park and went off road just a lil bit, you know to sorta scare her, or see what she could take. When i realized the puddles were deep, and the mud was just right . Then Yes it started pouring the rain. Make up down her face and hair flat and wet.I had a blast before i returned Judie back to the bar. I can still hear her screaming, and feel her smacking my arm. Now on the way back i was telling Judie she had to talk Mom into going with me next. She just laughed and told me i was crazy, Mom wasn’t going. We pulled back in the parking lot. I was cracking up, and getting ready to park when Judie smacked my arm and said ” Awe hell, lets do it one more time”. Gotta love her for that. and that i did. Judie was a big part in my life growing up. I dont remember not knowing Judie. and feel I’m a better person for it. Judie was more like my second mom and her passing hurts, but i know shes in good hands.

  • I remember Judie & Don visiting me everyday @ The Shovel Lounge for years. Judy would make us all laugh, she didn’t come in & just sit alone to her self, she had every one in the building in on all conversations, the jokes, stories … Just a fun time having her visit. Been years, but I have fun, happy memories of Judie & Don! So sorry for her family’s loss! Great Lady, RIP!

  • I’m so sorry to hear about the family’s loss of Judy. she was definitely a kind and loving person. my prayers for the family
