Judy was born in Jamestown, NY and was a graduate of Jamestown High School, class of 1968. Judy married her high school sweetheart in 1969 and enjoyed 54 years of marriage living life to the fullest. Nothing was more important to Judy than family and friends.

She had a passion for music, animals, history and enjoyed travelling. Her beautiful voice would often be heard singing her favorite show tunes. Her caring and compassionate nature enabled her to have a strong connection with animals.  She loved working with horses as a volunteer and had three horses of her own at her home in Bloomfield, NY.  Judy shared her lifelong knowledge of history and the Civil War as a volunteer at Beauvoir, in Biloxi, MS. Some of her favorite spots for travel were St. Kitts, Dominican Republic, Kiawah Island and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.         

Judy will be remembered for her strength, determination, and loving devotion to her family and friends. She battled Multiple Sclerosis for more than 40 years with a resiliency that is an inspiration to all that know her.    

Funeral services will be held at 1pm on Friday, May 3, 2024, at the Lind Funeral Home located at 805 W 3rd Street, Jamestown NY. Interment will be at Lake View Cemetery following the services.  Friends will be received two hours prior to the service from 11am to 1pm at the funeral home.
