Judy was adored by all who knew her. If ever there was an Angel on this earth, it was Judy. Her strength, through many years of trials and sickness, was phenomenal. She was a very talented seamstress and upholsterer that was passed down from her Mother and Grandmother. In 2014 she fell and seriously injured her right arm, ending her profession. She was in severe pain every day all day but being the strong woman she was, she never complained. She always had a smile for everyone and a kind word. Her two girls, Janet and Michelle were her life and she was a devoted Mom and Grandmother.
She met Chuck at her sister Eloise's house and they instantly clicked. They dated for 3 years and married on June 20,1986. They loved each other very much and were rarely seen separately. With Chuck by Judy's side, she had a perfect partner. Her every need was met if humanly possible. There was nothing Chuck wouldn't do for her or vice versa. Judy once gave Chuck a card that said everything in her heart...
“You gave me back something I thought I'd lost….Feelings I thought I'd never feel again….Somehow you saw through all the walls I'd built around my heart, and helped me to trust enough to let love in...And I just want to say thank you for being so patient and good to me in every way---for putting the healing magic of kindness and kisses
back into my life again. You're the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time…Judy”
