  • I was in her 3rd grade class when I was in Elementary School, I would always remember how loving and kind she was to all of us and I was really looking forward to seeing her again. This really broke my heart, but my heart goes out to the family. She will surely be missed forever and will never be forgotten. 

  • I was seeking out a friend’s obituary and came across this one for Judy. I am so sorry to read of her passing. I knew her as a child living next door to her on Spruce St, and then later reconnected as teachers. She was a guest reader for my 2nd grade class during Reading Week in Central Falls at Ella Risk School. At the time you were at the Housing Authority in CF, Rick. Judy was a lovely person. My deepest condolences to all who loved her.

       Joanne and I were very sorry to hear of the loss of your wife Judy. She was teaching at Martin School when both of our daughters attended school there. We are no longer living in town, but if you ever need me for anything at all please do not hesitate to call. Hold onto your memories and we will keep your family in our prayers.
