A strong work ethic, enumerable professional skills and intense dedication made Judy a valuable asset to her employers. The final being her position as Human Resource Manager at Alacer Corp, from which she retired November 6, 2009. Outside of the workplace Judy held an extraordinary talent for creating a comfortable home through interior design, organization, antique collecting, home cooking and her love of gardening; all of which supplemented her well-known hospitality. Amidst passion for enjoying life, Judy enjoyed music,dancing and was seldom one to turn-down a Bloody Mary....hold the celery! A prime example of a true-to-heart American, Judy encouraged strong family values and embraced Christianity throughout life. Her final years brought Judy to Oak Hills, CA, where she attended Calvary Chapel and sat on the board of the Hesperia Garden Club. Driven by her own internal perseverance, Judy offered encouragement and motivation to all those around her. Judy lived a humble yet remarkably challenging life outliving her family of origins and surviving the afflictions that plagued her youth. She remained true to her roles as daughter, mother and grandmother throughout life. Her loving, peaceful and gentle presence will be missed by all of the lives she has touched.
Judy’s life will be celebrated on December 11, 2010 at 11:00 am at Rose Hills Memorial in Whittier, California. The service is to be resided over by Pastor Paul Earle. Reception information will follow the service.
