I am so very sorry to learn that Judy lost her courageous battle with cancer last Saturday. I will remember Judy fondly as we enjoyed traveling together, going to ND tailgate parties, and golfing in past years. She was a lot of fun and will be missed by all who knew her. My heart goes out to Tony, her son, Richard, and her beautiful granddaughters. I know they will keep her memory alive and cherish all the good times they shared. Rest in peace, Judy.

With deepest sympathy,

Kathy Postle

Was so sad to hear of Judy's passing. She was a great inspiration with her positive attitude.
Will miss her sense of humor and all she had to offer. It just won't be the same without her presence.
With deepest sympathy,
Shirley S.

Dear Xouris Family,
We are sorry for your loss.
Our contact with Judy was "curb side." When we had a dog years ago and were out walking, we would have brief curb side visits with Judy when she was outside with Clyde.
May happy memories surround you and give you comfort.
