    Jud Ryan and families
    Our condolences at the loss of your mother. What a wonderful fun loving person!
    You will certinaly miss her but rejoice in the great treasure of memories. She was one of my “ducky” friends and I have missed her. She was a great hostess and always gave gatherings of friends that were most enjoyable. Our thoughts are with you.

    Judy was an original, to say the least. It was my privilege to know her and Jack for many years. She’ll be missed.

    Our most sincere condolences to Judy’s family.

    We had the pleasure of spending a great deal of time with Jack & Judy over the years! Their annual Christmas party was always a major highlite of the year. Judy loved to entertain as well as shop, she did so with enthusiasm, style and grace. Both of them were a big part of lives for a long time and left us with a boatload of beautiful memories! They certainly will never be forgotten!

    May they both rest in piece!

    Another of God’s angels called home. What wonderful memories you have gifted family and friends with your love and generous spirit. The Heaven will, indeed, be filled with your laughter. Brace up, Jack! Rest in peace, dear friend.

    To Judy’s Family:
    Your mom was so much fun at our DU events. She was always knitting an intricately designed sweater for someone. How blessed you were to have in your lives. And I still miss Jack–they were so funny together.

    Jud, Ryan and families,
    Our condolences to you all. Your mom’s passing leaves a large void. She touched our lives in many different ways.
    I met Judy soon after we moved to WI and worked with her at the lab for years. She was a great gal, full of fun, and always ready for a party. We had a some great times together working, shopping, food, golfing, whatever. My fondest memory of Judy was her attempt to teach me to knit a sweater. We would knit at work(breaks and lunch). I did well until I had to change needles. For whatever reason, I could never master the concept and finally gave up. About a year later Judy surprised me with a very special sweater. She convinced my husband Tom to locate my “discarded project”. She enlisted the help of our coworkers. Each one knitted a piece(front, back, sleeves etc) and Judy put them all together. I still have that sweater and I think of her each time I wear it.
    That’s a knack Judy had, I think, for taking parts of life and putting it together in ways that brought both family and friends happiness and joy.
    We were privileged to know Judy and Jack. We always had good times.
    You will be missed. Rest in peace my friend,
    Tom and Nancy Moore

    I enjoyed Judy so much! I’m so thankful to have had the honor knowing her and you beautiful kids. Please accept my long distant hugs and condolences.

    Growing up, Judy was like a mentor to me. I looked up to her and enjoyed being a helper in the summers for her. We were able to share books and the love of style and shopping and being in Style Shows together. Her memory will live with me forever.
    My sincere sympathy to the family.
