Judy was a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. She was a graduate of Sissonville High School and was a long-time employee of Kanawha County Schools Child Nutrition. Judy loved working with all the students at Flinn Elementary and will always be remembered as having a child-like spirit. She loved to dress up, decorate, and celebrate for any and every occasion. Judy was a Christian and a member of Kelly's Creek Community Church and an active member of the church's Ladies Aide.
