She was a member of the Great Crossing Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Judy was a friend to many, and despite having lived in many cities and states, she always made a point to sustain her friendships. She encouraged and supported her family tirelessly. Grandma Judy was a surrogate mother and grandmother to many children’s and grandchildren’s friends. She was a excellent cook and took pride in maintaining a beautiful home. The birth of her two great-grandsons last year brought her immeasurable joy.
