The funniest student in class of ’56 is now also its cheeriest, and always full of laughter. Daughter Donna is accompanying Judy to the 80th Birthday Reunion, and they look forward to sharing pictures and stories with patient friends…
Since high school in the Midwest, Judy has lived north in Michigan and south in Texas, southeast in Georgia and west in California. Her travels included the Caribbean with her daughter Donna, and London with her brother Marvin (and wife Lee). She took a guided tour to then-Soviet Georgia, and then hosted several people she met there when they visited her in Atlanta.
Moving from Atlanta to California, Judy tapered off of her award-winning advertising career. She replaced it with the hobby of acting, both for fun, and as a new challenge. Her most exciting role was beside Shaquille O’Neal.
You can take the girl out of the Midwest, but… well, apparently, not. Judy relocated back to Creve Coeur in 2016, wanting to be near family and high school friends. She quickly got active with a local performing chorale, and resides happily at Creve Coeur Assisted Living.
Daughter Donna relocated from Atlanta to St. Louis to provide invaluable help for mom. Son Rod and his wife Wendy live just east of Missouri in Kansas. Grandson Jeremy lives in Kansas City and granddaughter Samantha lives in New York City, and both travel to see Grandma Judy in St. Louis or during her Kansas City visits.
