So very sorry to learn of Judi’s passing. We knew how much she enjoyed her summer visits to Ocean City, NJ. We will remember her smiling face last we saw her at Jeanne’s Halloween party. Our deepest sympathy to her family & to you, Elizabeth, her dear sister. Michael & Jeanne Saile

 I knew Judi during my tour of duty in Okinawa, Japan in the mid 1980’s.  She was always so effervescent and upbeat…a real joy to know.  And, with good reason, she was always so proud of her boys.  We had lost touch but recently reconnected through her volunteer work at the food pantry where she coincidentally met my sister.
My condolences to her family… she was a kind soul taken too soon and will be sorely missed by all of those who knew her.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I worked with Judi for many years at Hallmark. She spoke with such love and affection for her family. I know how much she loved going to Ocean City. And her vacations to Mexico. Her appreciation of the theater got me to also volunteer at the Fulton.
Rest in peace, dear friend. 🩷

I had the honor of knowing Judi as a friend and she was a good influence in my life. She had a loving heart, happy spirit, and kind soul. She was always supportive of my daughters as they grew up and continued to support send them supportive messages into their adulthood. She loved her sons and adored her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by everyone and will leave behind a legacy that does great testament to the individual we all knew.   Becky Stephens
