Judy was born and raised in Sudbury, marrying Luc in 1968. The family moved to Wawa in the early 70’s where she worked at the Post Office then at Michipicoten High School as the Library secretary. She enjoyed camping on Whitefish Lake and many summer family visits to Sudbury. Judy and Luc returned to Sudbury in 1989 where she continued to enjoy camping at Cedar Grove and Post Creek Campgrounds. She enjoyed watching her grandsons play hockey and summer visits to Denise and Lane’s camp on the Magpie River. She also loved to watch Blue Jays baseball and too great pride in planting her spring flowers.
Judy loved spending time with her family and looked forward to hosting holiday dinners. She took pride in teaching her daughters to be fiercely independent.
