    Judy was one of the kindest caring person I’ve had the pleasure to know. She will be missed so very much by those who knew her, and i will miss her every day until we meet again.

    Judy was a special family friend for many wonderful years. We shared many good, sad times, special moments, and remained friends even when separated by miles. Remember all the wonderful times you shared with her as you travel through your grief. I know we will. God Bless you all.

    Judy was a dear friend for over 30 years. I will miss her beautiful smile, wonderful sense of humor and her great wisdom. We shared many laughs as well as serious conversations. She was an understanding and helpful friend through tough times. I will hold a part of Judy in my heart forever and miss her terribly. May her soul rest in peace while surrounded by those she loved who passed before her.

    Judy has been my best friend since sophomores in Beach HS 63 yrs ago!! We grew up got married and had our families!! Even though we lived miles apart, we could strike up a conversation on the phone like it was just yesterday that we were still in school !! we would always laugh and say how we were going to end up in the same nursing home as old people!! I guess I won’t get the chance judy!! The past week. I have remembered so many funny stories they will stay in my memories forever. I will miss you, judy!! God bless your family at this time.!!

    Judy was a colleague of mine in three different banks starting in the mid-1980s. More importantly, she was a trusted friend to me and my family over all of those years. I remember my kids in her backyard pool when they were preschoolers….and they are now in their 30’s. It was always fun spending time with Judy, Al and Carrie….they were real people! Judy was proud of North Dakota, her family and their military service to our country. Judy was a diligent professional and worked to become a valued officer of Citizens Bank & Trust before recently finishing her significant banking career.
