Condolence & Memory Journal

Judy was one of those people who made you feel special. She was very kind and thoughtful to me when I was going through a difficult time. I was lucky to work with her both at Memorial and PWS. I am very sorry to hear of her passing, and my deepest sympathy goes out to her family.

To Ed & family, we are so sorry to hear of Judys passing. She was a wonderful, funny lady and never lost her genuine spirit. Plus, she made wonderful baked beans and who can forget the fruitcake laughs. She will be missed by all whose lives were touched by her.

Remembering a very supportive and considerate lady who always had the time to listen and then try to help out in any way possible. She was much appreciated by the Bedford school staff. My deep condolences to the family and may all your wonderful memories sustain you for years to come.

Judy was a "second mom" to so many of us in the Bedford School District. She will be missed by so many! She was the heart of PWS and MEM for many years! When my husband Michael died in 2005 she was such a huge support for me! I started getting these cards from a secret friend, postmarked from all over the state of NH and even MA at times. They seemed to come when I needed them most, a birthday, Valentine's Day-you know tough days when you are a new widow. I finally figured out it was Judy having Ed mail them from different places. When I asked her she asked me to "pay it forward" as people had been so kind to her when she was sick. I have paid it forward many times, and will continue to do so in her honor. I want you , her family and friends to know what a special person she was. She will forever be in my heart as a person who went out of her way to help me through some difficult days. I live in Denver now but will be with you in spirit these next few days. And if you get a chance to "pay it forward" --please do so in Judy's memory! with love,
Marie (Carbonneau) Toole

Dear Donna and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was very welcoming to me as a student teacher at PWS. And her kindness runs in the family, as the kindness you extended to me as a member of our McKelvie family. I wish you peace and the time that will heal your sorrow. From my heart to yours,

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Judy was such a special person. I still remember standing next to the soccer fields when Donna and Tom played as little children with our Ginny and Chris. Wonderful memories of long, long ago. Keep those beautiful memories with you at this painful time. Jean and Cindy Chagnon

Judy was so kind to me as a new teacher to the Bedford School District in 1984. She showed me the ropes and had my back. I am forever grateful. She will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathies to you Deb and your family. I enjoyed seeing your Mom and Dad come into the salon. May she rest in the arms of the Angels. May Heavenly Father be with you and your family at this difficult time. Love you Deb

Judy was one in a million. She taught me to tell it like it is and that it is OK for an adult to love Disney. I used to find things to copy, just so I could go into her office and chat after a long day of work. I also loved running into her at basketball games. She was a very special lady and I will miss seeing her. My condolences to all of you.
