Great lady who almost singlehandedly kept CLO/SMT alive during some trying times. I was privileged to be on the CLO Board with Judy for several years. She will be missed. RIP.

We will forever be grateful to Judy for being the first to get to our 4 year old son when he fell into the water between their boat and the dock!! Very scary moment for us. Thank you again, Judy. We loved her sense of humor and many talents. We are so sorry for your loss, Randy, Barbarba, Sherrie and families. Dick and Cecil McCann

What a classy lady -- she always put together Ward Docials and cultural events. I remember thatshe taught us it was ok to clap in the chapel -- any time other than sacrament meeting:) Condolences to your family from ours.
