Her two great loves in life were her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and her family. She was very active in church and served the Lord in many ways. She started a puppet ministry that she ran for many years and went on various mission trips. One of her last wishes was for each of her grandchildren to get a study bible from her next Christmas. She lived by the motto “When your faith fails you, stay faithful.”

Judy fought a long battle with cancer but always maintained her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. She will forever be dearly remembered by her family and those who knew her as a devoted Christian woman and a loving wife and mother who was a shining example of selfless love.
