    Judy was my mother’s best friend in college and one of her bridesmaids. She was lively and fun and sometimes a prankster. I remember the jokes about dating a guy who drove a bakery truck, so they could reach in back for a roll. She was s good friend to my mother for the balance of her life. She was my courtesy aunt and I remember on visits how she talked about her brother and nieces. My condolences to all for whom she was a major force in their lives.
