Judy will certainly be missed in Fremont, Iowa. She seemed to enjoy the company of all she met. Judy took great pride in her work in the Kids Closet she started at the United Methodist Church.

So sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. She was a great lady and so full of spunk and orneriness. We had a lot of fun working at Panel Components. She was a great friend.
