Our Thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I have known Judy for 50-odd years and will miss the precious times we spent together. She was a true and loyal friend. A rare and beautiful soul that was always eager to listen to your stories of life and family. She will be dearly missed.

So very sorry for your family during this difficult time. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
I have lots of happy memories of Judy and her brothers. Judy and I lived in the same neighborhood. We were childhood friends and classmates at St. Mary’s. George, my brother Mike, and I would sometimes go to the movies on Saturday morning in the old theater on Liberty Street in downtown Wooster. Richard was the first boy to ask me to dance when we took dancing lessons at St. Mary’s. I am sad to know that they all are gone. May they rest in peace.
Judy and I were super close friends in grade school at St Mary’s and also at Wooster High School. So many crazy times we had together. My brother Bobby was a good friend of George’s. My prayers are with her children and grandchildren. I know she is in Heaven with her loved ones and my brother, Bobby.
Brooks and family, Our sympathies on Judy’s passing.

We are so sorry for your loss. If there is anything that you need please let us know. We have plenty of room for a place to rest your heads.
Judy and I attended St Mary’s together for eight years and then Wooster High School. I did not see much of her in high school but as seating in elementary school was usually by alphabet, she sat directly behind me in class.
Every morning we would greet each other and Judy always had a huge warm smile on her face. Many pleasant memories. She was a kind, sweet person. God bless her and her family.
My deepest sympathy to you Chad, Deb, and Hanna.
Brooks, I’m sorry for your loss. My sympathies to you and your family. Helen Crandall
Sorry for your loss you are all in my thoughts.
