Her hobbies included quilting, gardening and home renovation. She "enjoyed making things look beautiful again." In addition to her professional career, Judy was an entrepreneur; she was the creator of "Kelly Dolls". She was a loyal friend, caring neighbor, had a tremendous work ethic, provided for her children and had a deep love for her family. Judy was a member of Tri-City Baptist Church.
