With Judy’s passing she left our hearts filled with lasting memories and a legacy that will remain most treasured in all of our lives. Our family was blessed to be at home with Judy when she was called away. We were blessed with her courage to fight cancer for nearly 10 years. We were also blessed to live a full life because of this courage and Judy’s positive outlook on life that began with a smile each day. Brooks will miss his “Ama” but is happy she is now in heaven. In lieu of flowers, Judy requested memorials are preferred to Angel Foundation, St. Paul, MN. Judy supported Angel Foundation and their mission to provide emergency financial assistance, education and support for adults with cancer and their families.
