Judy enjoyed her flower gardens and singing in the church choir. She loved cooking for her family and taking road trips to Wisconsin and Minnesota with all her girlfriends.

We all loved Judy for her sense of humor and all of her stories; she had a million of them. She will be so missed by everyone who knew her.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to any of the local Pontiac food pantries.
