    Judy was one of my dearest friends, from grammar school thru High School, we also were neighbors for a short time. We graduated in 1956 one of our best years. She was always a happy person and I can still hear her silly laugh. In recent years we communicated mostly by email and Facebook but she was and always will be one of my dearest friends I will miss
    her. My heart goes out to John and her family. I hope she has found the peace she needed. Rest well my friend until we all meet up again.

    My godmother my namesake I adored her! She and I talked via text and played words with friends (two games at a time) week after week! She held me up when my dad passed! Was my cheerleader always! Picked me up when I needed her! I loved her so very much! I can only hope she knows how much she meant to me! She held a huge space in my heart that will be so empty without her! I wish she let me be there for her! I will truly miss her so much!



    I am so sorry to hear my friend Judy passed on. We just recently reconnected. Judy and I went to St. Mary’s together and had some great times there. Judy was one of the nicest,funny people and will be sorely missed. Take care my friend and say hi to everyone up there for me. My deepest sympathy to your family. Your classmate. Betty

    Lori; Please accept our condolences for the loss of your Mother. She was such a beautiful woman! At least now you know she is not suffering and is with our Lord in Heaven. I found it such coincidence that your mother also was from Cambridge just like we were & your parents were married the exact day that we were on Nov. 26th. 55 years ago! I will remember her in my prayers…… please take care!


    Saunders Family

    We were sad to hear about Judy passing. She was a great kind lady who will always be a part of our lives. Many fond memories of living next door to the Hannafins.
