Judy and I have been friends since we both moved to Blackrock.

I have enjoyed my visits with her and our talks about our lives "Back East" and how much we loved the Cedar City area.

She was a valiant and dear friend. I often told her how much I admired her strong faith and outlook on life. She was an inspiraton to me.

My love and prayers go to you, Owen and Diane -- and your families. She told me often how blessed she felt to have all of you in her life.

We now have another angel in Heaven to look after us!

Dearest Owen, Diane and family ~

Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve this deeply personal loss of your Mother.

Having grown up with you and your sister Cindy in "lil ole Bradford , Vermont " I have lasting memories of your Mom from our childhood in the 60's and 70's.

I remember her as a waitress at the local " Chimes Restaurant" her appearance left a lasting impression . She was stunning, tall, thin and perfectly polished. She was pleasant to all and knew NO strangers.
Those were the good ole days when you knew everyone on the lil main street and or were related, right ?

Owen you were my lil brother Billys best friend from his first day of school in third grade in Mrs. Grants class and he was so sad when you moved to MA. Im so pleased we had the chance to recconnect in CA a few yrs back !

You and Cindy are your Moms lagacy , always remember that . She loved you both dearly and was so proud of you both .
With love and prayers. Anne Marie and family

I'm shocked to learn of her death! I really liked Judith, knowing her from Thomas Aquinas College where she served with gracious perseverance. I worked from off-campus, so didn't get to see her often, but I always enjoyed seeing her when possible! I'm so happy she moved to pursue her passions. She was such a sweet and caring person. Please know that she and her family are in my prayers at this sad news! -Karen
