She wore a wonderful smile and had a fun heart. She was in the national book of who’s who for high school grads and was a proud member of Local 134 as a pari-mutuel clerk for over 30 years. Judy’s garden was on the Blue Island Garden Walk and she wrote a gardening column for the Blue Island newspaper. She managed little league baseball, was a Cub Scout mom, volunteered at school events and loved to play with all the kids.
