Sorry to hear about Judy's passing.
By her obituary she accomplished much during her life.
Having a bakery and her other accomplishments proved she was an unique person.
She will be greatly missed.

I was in Judy's homeroom (Mr. Duffy's) at Woodward for three years and she was my friend.  She was always happy and sociable and interested in everything--a ray of sunshine every day!  She will be sadly missed!

I saw Judy one or more times per year with her husband Jay. She was just as nice, warm, and friendly as she was in high school.

The loss of a classmate is never easy. There is no greater tribute than to say that Judy stayed as nice, warm, and friendly throughout her life as she was in high school. How wonderful to be remembered that way! Judy was a very special person, and I extend my condolences to her family and friends.
