“Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.” I pray that the Spirit of the Lord God be with the family during this time of sorrow. Judy was a wonderful neighbor and friend, she will be greatly missed.

A poem I wrote for my mom:


From the moment I was born

And saw your loving face

I knew I had a mother

That was full of love and grace

Who would help me through my burdens

Who would take away my fears

Who would sit beside me always

And wipe away my tears

Mom you mean the world to me

You taught me self esteem

But most of all you taught me

To follow all my dreams

You taught me to be kind

And to always understand

When a person is in need

To lend a helping hand

Family was important to you

As it is to me

And when I had Kierra

It was like she set you free

Free from all your sadness

Free from all your strife

Free from all the worries

Of your everyday life

The two of you were bonded

And were rarely ever apart

I know that forever

You will live on in her heart

I know you are happy now

I know you have no fear

I know that each and every day

You will always be near

To everybody who loves her

And will need her by your side

She is the angel walking next to you

She will be your guide

Judy was a great mother, grandmother, and friend. She was my mom and my best friend. She gave her all to Kierra and helped me out so much with her. I am thankful for everything my mom has given to us. She was the kindest, nicest, most wonderful person you could meet. We are all lucky to have known her. She will be missed.

Judy was like my second mother growing up. In all of my memories of her, she was beautiful, kind, gentle, nice and always smiling. I am sure that is what she is doing now.

Dianne, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. I will keep Kierra, Don, and you in my prayers.

I send you all my love in your time of need.

Judy will surely be missed. That smile and laughter while working together at the credit union stays with me forever and how we talked about our “children” who are now adults. Her children were surely loved.

my deepest sympathy to her children, dad and family.

Rest in Peace Judy,

Denise Williams
