Judy was a friend to both my husband, Bill, and I at SSCS.  She never showed a bad mood and I send my loving thoughts to Vicki, Roni, and Jesse.  Judy will be missed as a special friend.  Cyndie Thomson

Judy babysat my kids in 1964. I felt very comfortable leaving my 3 month old and 20 month old girls with her. Rest In Peace Judy.

Judy was a blessing in my life and the lives of my girls. She always loved on them and managed to keep them fed when they "forgot" their lunch money. She has a special place in many of these kids hearts. I'm sure she heard these words when she reached heaven: well done, thou good and faithful servant.

One of my favorite lunch ladies, always a pleasure.  I looked foreward to her every day at lunch.  It wasnt unusual to run behind the line for a big hug before loading my lunch tray......
