    Judy had such a vibrant personality.
    Watching her travel and shop where she traveled
    was always entertaining.
    May her family be comforted by our Great Comforter.
    A life well lived.

    I was 22 and recently married when I became next door neighbors to the Paynes. My family lived out of town, so Judy was like my older sister. I soon became a mom and Judy was the one I ran to for advice. She taught me how to make jelly. She was a great cook and shared her recipes. She had great taste in decorating. After she moved we still stayed in touch. She was the kind of friend that we might not call each other for months but when we did it was like we had just talked the day before… She was a great friend and will be greatly missed. Prayers for peace and comfort for Amy and family.
