She graduated from Upper Sandusky High School in 1959. and worked at Bowling Green State University as a cook and food service supervisor. She was a fabulous cook. One memory is her crown roast at Easter dinner which was picture perfect! Her pecan pie and oyster dressing at Thanksgiving were fabulously delicious. She looked forward to family gatherings and loved to hear what everyone was “up to”.

Judith had a smile and a chuckle that was like no other. She enjoyed recounting family memories such as riding on the back of her husband’s motorcycle, later recalling it as “such fun”.

She provided care for all her family, going beyond to babysit the little ones, buy presents each Christmas, and do whatever she could to help. She encouraged them every step of the way.

Judith was a competitive euchre player and loved it when she could recruit enough players for a game. She loved food and sweets and going out for meals. Judy loved animals, always caring for a couple dogs and cats in her home.
The family appreciates the care she received at Autumnwood Care Center. Special gratitude goes to Niece Beth Brown and great-nephew Collin Brown who assisted her for the last 11 years with loving and dependable care. The family will truly miss her in our lives.
