I enjoyed the light of Judy in choir for so many years. I loved how Judy and my mom Betty Fulkerson, would laugh together when they sang. Judy was so gracious and loving to me and to my family. She leaves a void in my heart. I shall miss her. Heaven gained a sweet soul.
Alice and John Ford
So very sorry to hear about Judy. Going back 50 years, she was so much fun, we had many happy times together. We celebrated high school graduation together at Hungary Mother Park. She was bridesmaid at our wedding. So sorry we didn't keep in touch. God be with you Lee and family. RIP Judy, we loved you.

Mark & I are praying for you & your family today. We were so proud to have Judy in our Sunday School class. She ALWAYS added so much with her spiritual witness. When she spoke you could feel the loving power of the Holy Spirit. She made everyone feel special. When she gave someone a hug they knew it was from the heart. She will be and is missed terribly! We should as Christians hope for our light to shine out to others as Judy's did. Earth's loss is certainly heaven's gain.

I will always remember working with Judy in the nursery at JCMCH. She was a talented nurse and a mentor for many of us. Judy always was smiling and laughing with her coworkers and parents of her patients. My thoughts are with her family during this time.
