Judy was blessed by the Lord with a very kind and generous nature. She blessed many people, family and friends, during her lifetime, and was loved by many. She learned to paint later in life while she lived in Atlanta, Georgia and mastered that art, painting many beautiful portraits. This hobby was a special blessing to her until the very end of her earthly journey, bringing her great joy, even while she lived at the Mark Twain Nursing Home.
