It is a very sad day for us and we cherish our wonderful memories of being together having fun, laughing and just being together as neighbors with the Fence Row commumity. There is no one like Judy, just a wonderful fun person who will be dearly missed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Murtaugh family.

We were so saddened to learn of Judy’s passing. She was a brave, loving woman who obviously found such joy in her children and grandchildren. I know you will all miss her dearly and will rely on many wonderful memories of her life to find some comfort and solace. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to follow all of you in the coming days.
