Aditional note from Judy’s sister:
Judy passed away in her home in Florence after having back surgery. A blood clot went to her lung and she died instantly.
It was Nov 9 2001.
"My Sister, for those of you who knew Judy in High School you
know what a character she was, She loved to laugh and have fun.
I often envied her free spirit, she thought nothing of getting on a
bus alone and go to the Mardi-Gras.
Later on in her life she developed a need to help people. So in the last few years of her life
she went to school to be a nurse. She graduated from Florence
Darlington Tech in the top 10 in her class."
