Judy had a passion for creativity and was often found crocheting or reading. Her skilled hands brought to life beautiful and intricate creations that she lovingly shared with those around her. She was always working on something new. Camping and fishing played a crucial role in Judy's
life. When she was not crocheting or reading, she was found by the lake with a fishing pole and some worms. She absolutely adored being outside with her family, and would have spent all of her time out there if she could've.
Judy loved being "the lunch lady" She talked about the kids frequently, always bragging about how amazing they were. She was a very giving person, and often spent her own money to make sure the kids wouldn't go hungry. The kids adored her and always went out of their way to get in her line to talk to her. She had a huge impact on theirs and so many others lives.
In her life, Judy experienced the beauty of love twice. She was married to Dee Arden Hamblin on September 12th 1959. She was with him until he passed on July 29th 1981. Judy later found love again with Richard (Rich) Lawrence Turner, they got married on November 27th 1997. Rich
