    I always liked walking into the office at Lutheran North when Judy was working. We frequently had great conversations. It made my days so much more pleasant. I miss those days and Judy will be missed by many, including those that she worked with for so many years. I pray for God’s comfort for Charles and all her children and grandchildren.

    Judy was such a part of the Lutheran North family, she was such a help to my husband Ed when he served as principal. Of course she attended many of the Basketball games where I got to see her to tell her she made Ed’s job so much easier. Her welcome on telephone or in person, made everyone feel welcome.
    I pray for your comfort and for many fond memories of a remarkable kind lady!

    Judy will be missed. She was a nice Lady.
    I had known her through Chris and Shannon for over twenty years.

    I am so glad I got to visit with Judy a couple of months ago, we had a great visit and I believe it was divine intervention that I walked down to Kevin’s house to see her, when I worked at North I always enjoyed talking with Judy. I know she will be missed by all. Prayers for the family and know that she is no longer suffering🙏🏻🙏🏻

    I first met Judy in 1991 at Lutheran North, Jeff brought me to meet her at work. From then on she always made feel like part of the family. We didn’t mention in the obit that she also loved to read! She used to have half a dozen library books at a time, and the last time I had a conversation with her, she was reading a Kindle book. I will miss her dearly.

    When I walked into the officer I knew problem solved because Judy was there.

    Judy was an invaluable help to me when I served as a school counselor at Lutheran High School North. She was always willing to help me with the paperwork and keep the records in order. She went out of her way to help me and all those in the office. However she was not just a co-worker. I saw her as a good and faithful friend. We shared stories about family. We laughed and cried together. My regret is that we didn’t stay in contact after I retired.

    Liz and I pray for peace and comfort.

    We did have a unique connection because her brother Norman was my high school counselor at Lutheran High School Los Angeles, California. We are blessed to have known Judy and her family.
