    I met Judy in 1978 when she employed me to work at Magnum. Judy was a beautiful lady,..she was intelligent, kind, compassionate, caring and giving. She taught me more things than she could ever know. Rest in peace my dear friend, and my prayers are with your loved ones.

  5. Jane and Family, my prayers go out to you during this time. Judy was such a strong Christian and her life was a testament of her faith. I count it a blessing to have called her a friend and a sorority sister.
