Judith, I always loved your sense of humor. Remember when I was remodeling your master bed and bath? That is when we first met. You hired me to design it and build it out for you. I’ll never forget when you were mentioning your kids Michael and Michelle and I stopped you short and said I had a brother and a sister by the same names. But why did you stop there and not have an MG? That totally cracked you up. Through the years we would chat a bit, pray for each other, sometimes laugh and cry. You will be missed my dear lady; but only until we are reunited at the big banquet table with our Lord! Love you - rest well and save a quilt for me. Love you ❤️ MG

Loving Judy was so easy. She was my closest cousin. We grew up together and shared our lives from day one. She was the funniest person I knew. Judy loved her family and Jesus Christ with a passion. She had a music ministry that she shared with a passion. Her love of education was followed through in her children, Michael and Michelle. She was proud of the love her husband Mike gave her. She will be missed by hundreds of people but I will forever love her and think of our years together.

Judy just lit up a room with her wit and beautiful smile. My heart goes out to Mike and the rest of the family. We grew to be great friends in the little town of Hebron, following all our kids events. Judy will be so missed by everyone and I am thankful for our wonderful friendship and beautiful memories. Love to all the family.
