    Judy was my dearest friend for many years. She was like a sister to me. I remember going to her parents home one time and hanging on the wall was Judy’s senior picture. Her mother said, Oh my gosh, you two could be sisters, and she was right, we even had the same hair do back then. My heartfelt condolences to all the family members and all her loved one’s. She will be deeply missed by all.

  4. Connie Loviska says:

    Debe, Gary , and families. Soon all the good memories will remain and the hard ones will fade. Even the last few days will be bitter-* sweet, with the cuckles remaining. Prayers and love to all of you.

    My mom, Millie Lawrentz always told us that Judy was her little sister. My mother is actually her aunt and just a few years older, they both loved to tease everyone that they were actually sisters. They even looked alike! My mom was so very happy that she was able to travel from Florida to Michigan this late summer and spend time laughing and sharing old stories with Judy her brother Paul and all of the other family members that were there. Our loss of someone with such a Joy of Laughter will be hard to understand. The best thing is that she has left us with so very much love, kindness and hilarious memories. The years that we have had her since her illness have been the real gift to us all, Judy stayed strong for a very long time and made every effort to grab as much of life as possible. She will always be remembered with a “Smile”. Much Love to all of her loved ones, With Condolences, her cousin, Jenny

    My heartfelt condolences go out to Judy’s family. I worked with Judy at Straticon for a few years. Even after she was no longer working there, she would stop in from time to time to chat. She loved to talk about her family and it was so nice that she took time to keep us updated on how she was doing. She was a terrific lady and she will be greatly missed.

  7. Jerry & Brenda Loviska says:

Please share your thoughts ...
