Judy was a founding member of the Mount Gilead AMVETS post 87 as well as a member of the VFW. She enjoyed playing cards, especially poker. In her spare time she wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to go camping with her family. She was known for her culinary skills and everyone looked forward to the meals that Judy prepared.
Judy also enjoyed sewing and collecting rare coins but above all her most treasured collection is all the memories made and time spent with her family and grandchildren. She cherished time spent at family outings and watching her grandchildren play sports.
