Judy’s children were always first in her life, and everyone enjoyed her famous traditional egg hunt and making her perogies and pagach bread. She relished relaxing with her sewing and quilting.  Judy was very active in the various churches she belonged and most recently attended Community Gospel Church.

Judy’s family would like to extend a special thank you to 365 Hospice for being so caring not only to Judy but the entire family especially Maryann, Gloria, Sami, and Janine.  And to special friend Harriet.
