In addition to being a dedicated wife and loving mother, Judy also loved her nightly devotion time, hunting for just the right gifts for her friends and family, and visiting with dearly loved neighbors. Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God and Jesus, which she would share his word with all she came in contact with. She was also an unwavering prayer warrior for anyone in need, even if she didn't know them personally.
