I first met Judy at a Catholic Knights Joint event- she was an officer in the Branch of Ashton-Middleton, I was an officer of the Branch in Mount Horeb. I was also at conventions with Judy and Pete. My husband and I also saw both of them at Ashton Fish Fry's. Always a smile on her face, very friendly people Judy & Pete. Our sympathies to Pete and family.

No one can replace the smile Judy always had for everyone. She will always be remembered for her quiet gentleness and care for others. My pray for you is that in time to be comforted by the memories of her loving ways and the knowledge that she will live forever in the blessings of your children and grand-children. I know she would want that for all of you.

Judy always had a smile on her face. She was a lovely, gentle lady. I was so saddened to hear of her passing. I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to spend time and visit with her while having lunch on Monday, November 12th. I'll always remember the good time we had when she and Pete came to visit Rod and me in West Palm Beach Florida.
I am sorry for your loss Pete and family. Regards, Martha Ripp
