She worked for several years in textiles and was also a homemaker.
She was a very active member of Messiah Lutheran Church, Troxelville, where she taught Sunday school and served on church council and with W.E.L.C.A.
Judy enjoyed cooking and made the best and biggest whoopie pies. She was an avid Penn State fan. Judy especially loved listening to hymns and golden oldies, watching westerns, receiving roses, wearing pearls, and the sweet innocence of babies and puppies. Most of all, she took great pride in her children and grandchildren and adored her dog Ginger.
