Judy was fiercely devoted to her four children, always sharing their special symbol Js 4Js 4ever. She defended and stood by her children with her life. She had the amazing ability to make you feel like you were the most important person in her life at moment. You knew she was genuinely interested in what concerned you. Her heart wasn't only for family,
she had great compassion for all people (especially children) who were suffering and mistreated. She was especially grived to she animal cruelty. Her sense of humor helped to keep things balanced and she was always sharp with a witty quip or a funny (usually self directed) jab. Always a jokester Judy would playfully tease her ever patient, caring loving (and much loved) husband. Judy called Port Arthur, TX her hometown but she was a true New Orleanian who was passionate about her faith, family, fur babies and all things right, true and just. We your family and friends celebrate your Life and the Love you so generously lavished on us. Till we see you again on Heaven's side know that we Love you very very very much!
