  1. A lifelong friend is a gift and a blessing. Someone who is loyal and true, supportive and honest… always there for you in good times and tough times. Judy was that kind of forever friend. We grew up together on the same South City block … friends since grade school. Like sisters, we laughed and cried over silly and also serious things, knowing that we were loved. I’m so happy that we have stayed in touch for over 65 years! I’ll always remember and appreciate Judy’s kindness and humility, her wit and sense of humor, and how she always put others before herself. She was a strong and resilient woman who was loved by many. I will miss her a lot. May she rest in peace.

  2. Dear Dorothy,
    I want to express my profound condolences at the loss of your sweet, fun loving little sister. This is “Little Alice,” Helen & Stanley Brook’s niece. In conversation with my cousin Mary , she advised me of Judy’s passing. I was very sorry to hear this. I have such wonderful and sometimes silly memories of Judy. I’m sending you loving hugs and prayers for comfort in the knowledge that Judy is at peace in Heaven . God bless you and your family.

  3. Bill and I were so blessed to live next door to Judy and Ruth. We were much more than neighbors; we were family. Growing up, I aspired to be just like Judy. She was incredibly sweet, friendly, smart, a hip dancer, able to play pop songs on the piano, and a whirlwind typist. Although others could easily see her beauty and talent, throughout her life, Judy was too humble to recognize this in herself. Judy, you will be missed more than you could have imagined, and you will always have a special place in my heart.
