Rest in peace Nana Judy
What a great lady, condolences to the family.
Judy was part of our team at Lincoln for many years but I remember her most for her untiring efforts building the new office complex. While seemingly out of her comfort zone Judy reviewed every office detail, chairs, wall coverings, movable wall placements, decorations, …..she went toe to toe with every executive and tirelessly “negotiated” the new standards. She saved us countless hours in the construction “sweet talking” behind the scenes to keep us ahead of schedule and under budget.
The office we all walk into on St. Clair has a lot of Judy on display everyday.
Rest in peace Judy.
Such a lovely lady. I will always remember our four years in Glee Club at Chardon High School sharing in so many songs. She will be missed. God’s peace to your family and friends.
