She appreciated trips to Woodstock, Atlantic City to the casino and loved being anywhere near the water. She found great joy in antiquing with her family. Judy was a member of the Goose Hill Neighborhood Association and always looked forward to her porch night with the ladies. Above all she cherished the time she was able to spend with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Judy will be remembered for being the life of the party.
