    Sympathies extended to Judy’s family. Being a previous neighbor of Judy’s in Millhopper Station, I would see Judy frequently and we would visit when she was driving past my home. A sweet lady with a great smile. She was a busy lady in her retirement life.

    Judy and Jim were our neighbors in Lindenhurst for many years. Our two Children James and Kelli went to kindergarten together. They were wonderful neighbors and we regretted to see them move to Florida. Rich and I send our deepest sympathies to the family for their loss.

    I am so sorry to hear this news. Judy and I were friends in Lindenhurst a long time ago, before she and Jimmy had their son. I remember when he was born. We lost touch for many decades but just “found” each other on Facebook and I was so happy to reconnect. Don’t know the details but am truly sorry for your loss. She will be remembered for sure.

    Even if I was in a bad mood, Judy could put a smile on my face. She was the first one to say hi and wave. Judy always made you feel like family. I will miss her laugh, her cheering on all her boys. She made Ozzy feel like she was his grandma! Judy loved life and everyone in it, she made me want to be like her. She left way too soon, I’m so sorry for the loss of this family. Love and blessings to you.
