Please receive my deepest sympathy to Terry & family on the passing of Judy Kay. She was a lovely lady that was always very nice to me and I enjoyed our conversations when we were together. We also found in her a battle side and being very courageous to take on this terrible cancer. Rest in peace Judy Kay and I will always remember the memories. Chris Knauer

To Terry and family,

I am so sorry to hear of Judy's passing. She was a cousin, and I always found her very kind, caring, concerned for others in spite of her own health issues. She was very involved with her family and grandchildren, had a sweet disposition, and I will miss seeing her at the plowing match and other events when I visited my aunts in Kaneville. I know all of you will miss her so much, she is in our hearts..will not be forgotten. She was truly a courageous spirit, with a wonderful spark.
