Russ And Vicki, I can not truly express how shocked and saddened of Judy”s passing.
I will deeply miss our conversation as I stopped by the church office (which was often). She always would answer any questions when I bugged her with a telephone call at home. Judy was a loyal Treasurer and member of St. John’s
Evening Circle for years. She was my son’s (Seth) preschool teacher at St. John’s U.C.C. Seth did not want to stay in
class without Mom, but she handled it well. Enough can not be said about her contributions and personality to get along with people. Rest In Peace, A forever friend, Eileen Gammon
So sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. She was such abeautiful lady and I so enjoyed her when we had get togethers at Aunt Lou’s, before we moved to California.
May God comfort you at this time.
Russ – I’m so very sorry for your loss. Judy was an exceptional lady. I can’t imagine how hard this must be for you. I will keep you in my prayers. If there’s anything I can do for you please don’t hesitate to call.
We are so sorry to hear about Judy. She was such a lovely lady. We enjoyed knowing her when we were at St. John’s and appreciated how when we returned for a visit she always made sure to talk and catch up with our family. We send our love and sympathy to Russ and Vicki.
Russ and Vicki, Judy was more than just a co-worker to us… she was our friend. Through good times and bad, she was always able to make things better. We will miss her every day. The office will always be more than a little empty without her presence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Sincerely, Bob and Steve Puckett.
Russ & Vicki, I was heartbroken to hear about Judy and sorry I could not attend the funeral. She did a lot of things for me at St. John’s and we always shared a laugh together. I loved her laugh! She was very dedicated to her job and always had a smile for everyone. We will all miss her terribly. Our deepest sympathy, Carol & Joe Bulva
