Judy and her husband were active in The Legion of Mary at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and were long-time members. Her favorite career was being a Mom of 5. Judy enjoyed playing cards and crafting. She liked listening to Elvis and Neil Diamond. Her most enjoyment was her family and spending as much time as she could with her grandchildren. Judy will be remembered as having a great sense of humor, being very independent, smart, strong, and one that could rarely stay mad. She will be dearly missed by many family and friends.
