If you knew Judy, you know she loved to take care of everyone before herself. She loved her family more than anything and she would give the shirt off her back in a heartbeat. Judy loved having her family together for the holidays and did not miss a birthday party if she could help it. Her family was her life. Judy raised many children in her lifetime on top of her own. Judy also had a love for playing cards, gambling, bowling, traveling, fighting Illini and most of all the Chicago Cubs.
For many years Judy worked at ATI Continental filling before becoming an LPN. Judy worked for many years as an LPN at Vermilion Manor nursing home and Dr. Karinattus office where she retired from. Judy wasn’t a very religious person but she did believe in god and her life was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 - “and be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
