Judith was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. She served as choir director for many years. She worked as a lab and x-ray technician at Union County Hospital; later she worked under Dr. Whiting as his nurse for over 25 years.

She loved yard work, cooking for her family and friends and the many hours spent with all her “Club” girls.
