After I met Judy she started coming to my home to do crafts. She was such a delight. Always very kind and caring. She was funny too! I always enjoyed her. I was glad to say you were my friend.
It was such a pleasure knowing Judy, and my Mother was Judy’s very Best Lifelong Friend. Our parents were also close with Dan and Judy and are alive today and are members of the church because of Judy. Thank you for all the Memories 🤍
My husband and I knew Judy since 1965. I always admired that beautiful little lady that had the courage to attend church even though her very fun, artistic husband did not accompany her. She held many callings in the church and did an excellent job fulfilling each one.
She spoke of her wonderful children often and expressed her love for all of you and your families. Our sympathy goes out to the family.
We love your family and are grateful that Judy introduced my parents to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They were baptized members in 1956 and my mom was Judy’s best friend and life long friend growing up. My parents are still living and we are grateful to Dan and Judy.
Judy, when Joe and I moved to Richland Dan and you were two of thefirst people to welcome us with open arms. Now, I know, Dan is embracing you with love. When you called me a few weeks ago, you sounded tired. Now you can rest in His home and watch over your friends and family. God blessed us with friends like you. we will miss you but know we will meet again. God be with you.
We love you
Joe & Laura Schmidt
