Judy was a very talented and creative lady who made beautiful quilts, crafts, and picture books. She was a great reader with a sharp mind, and she passed along her joy in reading to her family. She also loved cooking, gardening, and spending time with those she cherished. She leaves a legacy of faith, strength, determination, and courage and will be greatly missed by family and friends.
As Judy and Cloyse leave this earth together, we are comforted by our sure faith that they are reunited with their Lord. Today we remember and cherish them both as we say goodbye to them for a while until we see them again in our heavenly home.
