Judy was a devoted wife of 43 years, a loving mother and a fiercely loyal friend to many. She was a longtime parishioner at St. Lawrence Roman Catholic Church, where she cherished her time singing in the choir and her numerous friendships. She enjoyed a decades-long career that started at age 18 in New York City and included years of dedicated service at Heinrich Chevrolet, Wegmans and lastly at Wilmorite, from which she retired just a few years ago. Judy was a natural care-giver and always quick to lend a hand to others. She was an avid supporter of the need for a hospice facility in Spencerport and instrumental in the founding and operation of Aurora House, where she served as volunteer and board member for many years.
