To all the Sander kids and their families, my condolences to you. Judy was my second mother in those early years on Ritchie Avenue. I loved her and all of you like family. In fact, with the weddings we created out of Beth’s communion veil, we very well could be related! My thoughts are with you!
Love, Mandy Watts Hirko
Brad and my sympathy to you. My memories of Judy run deep and rich. She was a remarkable woman, wise beyond her years. She taught me many things and will always be a part of me. My girls are so saddened as Judy was a fun and stable part of their growing up years.
Rich, Beth, Tony, Michael, Joe,
Brad and I, as well as Beth and Manda, are deeply saddened by the news of your Mother’s death. Our sympathy to all of you and your families.
Judy taught me many thing, how to paint, how to can veggies, but most of all how to face life’s bad moments and endure. She was one of the strongest women I have known.
We all had many hours together on your driveway watching you children play. She loved each one of you and knew you as individuals. Her humor was contagious.
I am sorry that Brad and I will be unable to be with you on Wednesday. We are meeting some of his family in North Carolina. My thoughts will be with each of you.
Thank you, Beth, for finding us and calling.
Judy came into my life at the right time, became my dear friend and even business partner. I know she will be very much missed.
