Judy was a loving mother and caring grandmother who loved her children with all her heart.   She enjoyed was doing simple things like working in the yard, playing Bingo, cooking, and fishing, but was the happiest when she was spending time with her children and grandchildren.  Judy was a strong yet gentle presence who looked for and encouraged the best in those she loved.  With a big heart, Judy would give the shirt off her back to anyone who needed it.
