So so sorry to hear this sad news. Judy and I had some great times working at Dey Brothers together and then being married to brothers. She was a kind and generous friend when I needed one. May she rest in peace. Pamm xoxoxo

I am so sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. She was a second mother to me and was a huge part of me growing up. I’ll never forget her doing cannonballs in the pool for all us kids. My thoughts go out to Heather and Jim. Stay strong. I’ll never forget her smile and her awesome laugh. May Judy rest in peace. ❤️

My dear sweet Jude…I guess I always thought we’d see each other again someday and now I’m soo sad. I’m emotional right now because the boys and I were privileged enough to live next door to your generous heart.
I hope somehow you knew just how special you were to me. There’s a flood of memories pouring down on me right now that all star you as the giver and me, the receiver.
I will love you forever. Your life made me better.
And by the way, I will never forget your walnut tarts that I would beg you to make, and you would, and we would both overeat.
Forever, Jude! Forever!

I must say this photo captures the same beautiful smile Judy had since the first day I met her, way back in high school, when she started dating my brother. Many good memories from those times. Eternal rest grant to her oh Lord. With love, Carol

Growing up on Knowell Rd next to her, she was such a bada$$ in my mind! To this day, every time I hear Barry Manilow I think of her and her spunk! Peace and comfort to both of you Heather and Jamie, at this difficult time.

My sincere condolences to everyone in Judy’s family at her untimely passing. When we were teenagers working at Dey Brothers in Fairmount Fair, she asked ME out on a date! She was a wonderful person with a zest for life that was contagious to everyone around her. Rest in Peace, Judy; you will always be fondly remembered.

Judy was a friend throughout high school, and we had the usual crazy adventures together, given the times. I am saddened by her untimely passing. I last saw Judy at my high school graduation party, when she was pregnant with her first child. She was extremely happy, and that’s how I’ll remember her. Rest in peace, Judy.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
