Her family was comprised of her husband, Chuck; daughters, Charlene & Sara; grandson, Charlie and beloved K9 companion of 13 years, Sammi. Judy was proud of her daughter’s career paths, Charlene as a School Teacher and Sara as a College Women’s Head Golf Coach. She was always supportive and looked forward to events that grandson Charlie participated in especially while playing he was baseball. Sammi had a special spot in her heart. Judy had a true love and affection for dogs.
Through the years Judy and Chuck enjoyed attending Charlene’s dance recitals. Thankfully they both enjoyed travelling and looked forward to following Sara while she was playing and coaching golf. She loved the outdoors and going camping was one of her favorite pastimes.
While camping with family, Judy had favorite campgrounds to include Hamlin Beach, site #104 and Lakeside Beach. Sitting around a camp fire, sharing stories, for her was a joy!
Holiday family traditions were of huge importance and looked forward to by Charlene & Sara. Traditions begun by Judy and Chuck their girls still carry on today. Christmas wouldn’t have been complete without Chuck and Judy reciting together ‘twas The Night Before Christmas. Judy’s daughters fondly remember frantically searching about the house for their Easter baskets.
In her free time, she looked forward going out to lunch and dinner with friends and family. Judy liked going to see new movie releases with Chuck at Tinsletown Theatre in Gates.
Judy could be described as: loyal, honest to a fault, strong willed, a worrier, caring, thoughtful & inquisitive.
