Judy, known as Mikey to her loved ones, graduated from Hower Trade School in 1960 and spent many years as a cosmetologist, proudly cutting her family’s hair as well as many others in the community. She worked at St. Matthew’s Parish and School, where her sons all attended. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Judy was sassy, silly, and brutally honest, with a wonderful sense of humor. She was beautiful inside and out and loved her family fiercely. She lived and died with the heart of a lion. She is now reunited with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
