I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Judy when my family and I went to Dr Sarro’s office. She was always a smiling face and since she was only 5 years older than me we talked about St Es where I went and Ursuline where my mother and Judy went!!! I know you will miss her.

Gerry, I am so sorry to read about Judy’s death. I got to know her when I lived on Bungalow Avenue. She was a good friend to my cousin, Pat Price. Judy was always so kind and full of good humor. Rest In Peace, Judy.

Gerry and family. I am so sorry to learn of Judy’s passing. She was my friend all through St. Paul’s. We moved to Elsmere in 1956, the summer before we both started High School. Your family had moved to Elsmere prior to us and, Judy was the first one to greet me at a very difficult time in my life. Before I knew what was happening, I was at my first Blue-Gold football game with your family. We remained friends through high school and then life took us in different directions. I will always remember Judy’s smile and friendship! May she Rest In Peace!

I met Judy years ago when my neighborhood friends on Broom Street and 7th Street grew up with Patty Mealey and her sister Sue. What I remember about Judy is that she was a beautiful person and had a great personality - so much laughter and joking. Wishing the family my sincere condolences and remember all the good times you shared with her. Family, Faith and Friends are what we have in times likes these. Ellie Green
