Very sorry to hear about this . Thoughts with the family . Judy was always fun to be around in school and I only saw her at the 10 year reunion since graduating .

Sad day indeed !

I have so many good memories of time spent with Judy,  She was just a great person to hang out with and she could always make me laugh.  My heart goes out to her husband and children and the rest of the family.  I have known the Mengles for over 40yrs and I know this will be very hard for them.  God bless.

I have known Judy and the Mengles since we were just little kids, I remember going to Sunday school together and both her mom or her dad were our Sunday school teachers.  Our parents were friends and I remember visiting them often.  We went to school together, then high school together, we really grew up together and we were always great friends.  I have so many great memories of Judy and her family over all those many years. As long as I can remember she has always been around, and I just thought she would always be around.   I was able to talk to her a few months before she died and let her know how much her friendship meant to me over the years and I feel fortunate to have known her.
