  1. Sorry to hear about Judy when I got up this morning. Although I hadn’t seen her in many years, I remember her as someone who had a good heart. She is another person who passed through my life that I wish I could have spent more time with. My heart is with the family during this time of bereavement.

  2. Memories of riding the Pleasant Plains School bus together in the early 1960’s. Judy & I were co-workers at the Illinois State Board of Education for many years. I will remember Judy for her humor, work ethic, and generosity. She was a beautiful lady.

    I pray that memories will comfort her family, especially her twin, Joyce. May the Lord comfort you in the difficult days ahead.

  3. I was so saddened to learn of Judy’s passing. Not aware that she had been ill and in the hospital. We worked together at ISBE a lot of years about the same number of years 38. She was a sweet lady and co-worker and she loved her grandkids for sure. She will be missed. Prayers to all of the family. Rest in peace sweet friend.

  4. Dear Joyce,

    What fond memories I have of the fun we all had in high school! Please accept my sympathy at this sad time and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
