Judie was wonderfully talented in sewing, having made her children's clothing, made beautiful wedding gowns, and is fondly remembered for teaching her two youngest granddaughters how to sew their own dresses for the annual Father-Daughter Dance. Judie also enjoyed knitting, making all her children and grandchildren intricate sweaters with designs on the back. Prior to retirement, Judie worked in the medical field as a medical assistant for many years.
