Following high school, Judy attended Pontiac Business Institute and worked in the Comp Dept at GM before becoming a full-time stay at home mother. Judy will be remembered as an amazing mother and grandmother. She was affectionately called "Ju-Ju" by her extended grandchildren, the ones she spent many years caring for, free of charge, because her soul loved children. Bella will always hold a special place in her heart. In her spare time, Judy loved to read, complete puzzles, play bunko, and read romance novels. Judy and Jeffrey enjoyed playing cards, volleyball, camping and casinos. Judy was active in her children's lives. She coached her daughter in softball, and she was a girl scout leader. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and community.  A memorial service will be held on Friday, December 2, 2022, at 11:00AM at COATS FUNERAL HOME-WATERFORD with visitation beginning one hour prior to the service.
