Judy was a kind and loving lady. She wanted to help everyone she could. Judy knew everybody and if she didn't she did before she was done talking. Judy loved her two dogs, loved to play BINGO, and ride her scoter through town to say hello to everyone. Judy loved going to church and she knew Jesus as her savior. She loved to tell her grandkids stories of her past. Judys last gift was to give life to someone she never knew.
