Judy took a small stationery and invitation business that she bought in 1977 and grew it into a phenomenal event planning business.

Judy had wonderful and rich friendships, and especially loved to go out with her girlfriends on Friday nights. Judy lived life on her own terms. She was the life of the party, full of laughter and love. She was a tremendously loving daughter, mother, friend, and sister. She was incredibly genuine, honest, and passionate about all that she loved.
