    I knew Judy casually when we attended Somerville (MA) High school. I wish I had known her better as I have heard such wonderful stories about her from her friends and family who knew her so well. Judy fought a brave battle with her cancer. She may be gone but her legacy will last forever in the hearts of those who loved her. On behalf of SHS 1960 and myself, I send my condolences to Judy's husband and family.
    RIP Judy

    Meeting Judy and becoming friends with her has been one of the highlights of living in The Villages for me. She had such a subtle sense of humor and we shared many laughs together. She always gave the best advice and was truly caring. Playing Mahjong without Judy will never be the same. She will be missed and the memories I have of spending time with her will be forever cherished. My sincere condolences to Dick and to Judy's family.

    Words can’t express the sorrow we are feeling right now. Heaven has definitely gained an angel. Judy was such a friendly, caring, considerate woman. You don’t find many like her these days. May you rest in peace.

    To say 'there are no words' might be true, but then again, there aren't ENOUGH words to express what Judy meant to me. She was everything a friend could be and the times we had together will be precious memories. Always in my heart, always in my ear whispering 'You've got this, Lucille'. Rest in peace dear Nutty Buddy❤
