Judy grew up and married in Fremont, NE. Once married, they moved to Puyallup, WA where she raised her family. She spent many years driving school buses. Later she worked in the food service industry. She was a good cook and you could always get a good meal at her home. She also loved to bake. She generously shared these yummy treats with family, friends and the community. And she was the best divinity candy maker!!
She loved her family, especially the grand and great-grand children when they came along. Playing bingo and doing some gambling at the casinos were also favorite past times. She enjoyed trips to Reno and Las Vegas.
Judy had the best smile and sense of humor. Her laugh and the way she could joke around with people will be missed.
