Judi was born May 12, 1945, in Delaware, Ohio, to Betty Jane (Rodgers) and George Burdette Gray of Ostrander, Ohio. Judi was the second of five children and was known for her dimples, vivacious personality and wonderful sense of humor. She lit up and energized any room she entered because of the vibrant, warm and loving soul she was.

She played brass instruments, primarily the French horn, and sang in a cappella quartet. She was known for her cooking talents and played softball in church leagues. Early in the computer era, she trained employees on software programs. Judi worked for more than 20 years at AT&T in Jacksonville, Florida. She loved her two Chihuahua dogs, Molly and Harry.
