    Judy was a lovely woman! A sweetheart she looked and reminded me of oldest sister who passed away several years ago I will miss seeing her at the restaurant ! She loved her children and was so proud of her newest granddaughter. My heartfelt condolences to JJ and her family! She will be greatly missed

    Growing up on Branwood meant you had multiple mom’s watching over you. Judy was always peeking outside and making sure we were being sweet. Judy was a kind and loving woman. My heart goes out to her children, Tammy, Ron, Tim, Shannon and all who loved her. Thank you Miss Judy for the memories I will carry of you. God bless this loving family. Love Karen Aday Crespo

    Very rarely have I met a person with such a positive outlook on life as that of Judy. She always spoke with love and compassion in her voice and a smile on her face. She was the sister- in-law that I welcomed into our family. If she had a fault it was she pampered my brother too much! Jerryl you know she spoiled you!
    Please accept my condolences as you celebrate her life. I know when she sits across the room from God she will thank him for sending her all of you.
