  • I am so sorry for your loss!! I always remember her watching Nicloes softball game and yelling at my first base coach to move because she couldn’t see. If you need anything let me know! Once again I am so sorry for OUR loss.

  • Cassie, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know how much you cared for your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. She was such a special lady. I loved her silly hats and her kindness. I know her and mom were comfort to each other during their dialysis treatments. Now they are suffering no more and laughing in heaven. God bless you all.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Judy was such a wonderful, kind person. She always made me smile and I always enjoyed talking with her.

  • I will greatly miss Judy and our ten o”clock telephone calls to catch up with each other.I was so glad she was able to come to my birthday party . This has been a tough journey for her, but bless her heart she stuck it out as long as she could. NOW SHE IS HAPPY AND WE CANNOT WISH HER BACK. My deepest sympathy and love to you all.

  • Judy was such a lovely lady and second mom to me. She made my mom and I look so good. I loved her advice and stories and crazy creations. She will be missed. Thinking of you Cassie and Jennifer.

  • Cassie and Jennifer

    I offer my sympathy for your mother’s passing. As I read the announcement my mind was filled with remembrance of your father and mother when I was a scout and later when I worked with them as an adult leader of Troop 370, with the two of you tagging along. I remember them fondly and the spirit of Christ in them to serve others. I wish I could be there to be with you during this time, but as I live in Florida distance will prevent it. Know that I am thinking about you and your parents.

  • Saddened to hear of Judy’s passing. She was always smiling & had such a contagious laugh! Her creativity was endless…she made small pillow case covers for my cat and her heart was pure gold….I called her late one evening to ask if she’d seen my parents during the day, because I couldn’t get a hold of them on the phone….she drove to their house to check on them! She was loved by many and will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies to all.
