"Judy was such an amazing Christian friend. She was highly intelligent and gifted in so many ways. But more importantly, she was kind!! She was always inclusive, inviting everyone to come to lunch after a Gingerbread meeting. Her organizational talents greatly benefited the Dana's Place Library. She is so very missed and fondly remembered."
"As a big sister, Judy was the best. We all miss her dearly!! With Love, Erik (my given name), Jack ( nickname my mother gave me) , and Butch ( nickname used during my younger years). Judy will always be remembered!!"
"Judy was a real blessing to her church. The girls at Gingerbread were blessed with her leadership and John's involvement for so many years. She was incredibly organized, and disgustingly energetic. She put us all to shame. I am sure Heaven is better organized with her onboard in person now, and the angels probably honor her with requests for tips on how to do 45 things at once !!"
"I remember the Bible Study we had one Easter week at Judy's home in La Crescenta. She greeted us with hot cross buns and a lovely smile. And then all those beautiful and tasty decorated cakes she made during those years! Judy was a very active member of La Crescenta Presbyterian Church and I remember her with deep respect and fondness."
"We have just received the news of Judy's passing. She will always be a special part of our family. Love and Prayers to John, Jane & Lynette
Love Morris, Patty & Famiily"

Psalm 30:5b My love and prayers are with you, John, and your whole family."
"I have enjoyed working with Judy at Dana's Place (the Children's library) at Green Valley Presbyterian Church. She was kind and compassonate. She loved her family and her God. She shared her joys in her conversations, photos, and sent emails of poems etc she found on the web. She was a treasure. She touched my life in a very positive way. She will be missed. Peace & Love to her family and all who knew her. Carole Neumann"
"Judy, my adopted sister you are forever in my heart. I will always be
Indebted to you and your family for adopting me. I know you are in heaven. Pray for our family and tell mom thanks for her love and for all
She did for me. Your love for you brothers and sisters will never be forgotten. You're now a precious angel of God. Thanks for your love, Sal brother #3."
"Judy was such a precious Christian friend. She shared her numerous talents in so many ways. Her kindness and humor will be long remembered, and she will be profoundly missed."
"Our family has known Judy for about 14 years, ever since she and John began attending Green Valley Presbyterian Church. During those years, she became an important part of our church family, con-tributing her talents with love and devotion. She was a woman of strong convictions and firm opinions, and there was no question about where she stood on an issue. She was kind and caring, and she deeply loved her family. Several years back when we suffered a great loss in our family, she gave me a little gold butterfly pin which reminds me of her kindness every time I see it in its crystal jewelry box on my dresser. She touched our lives with the gentleness of that butterfly, and we will miss her. We pray that God will bless and comfort her dear husband John and precious family."
"Thank you for everything you did for me and the Girl Scouts. It will always be remembered."
"We never had the pleasure of meeting Judith, but to her family, may your memories of your mother/grandmother be the light in your hearts for comfort and peace as you trek into your futures. Many blessings of calm and love to guide you thru your loss."
"Judith was such always so sweet to myself and my daughter whenever we saw her at scouts. Always ready with a smile or kind word. I know she will be missed by many. My condolences and thoughts are with you all at this time."
"I met Judy when I joined the Gingerbread workers. We hit it off and in a very few meetings had become friends.. Judy was, to me, the very best Christian I had ever met. She was kind, caring, and always tried to get me involved in other church-related activities. I joined Dana's Place at her invitation. When I became too ill to attend the meetings she kept in touch through emails. Every so often I would receive a card from her. Although we rarely saw each other, she always let me know that I was loved and cared about. All who knew her will miss her."
"There are those who enter your life for a designated time (God appointed) and this was true with Judy and myself. For the past two years we shared activities at GVPC with Gingerbread, Ladies Bible study at her home, monthly lunches at Mimi's and I came to see the true inner beauty of Judy and her love of our Lord. I had only these two short years, but am a better Christian Woman because of the love she shared with me. You are missed and will continue to have a special place in all of our hearts."
"Dear Family of Judith,
I'm sorry that you are experiencing the mourning of losing a love one. Many if not all of us has experienced this, but I would like to share a brief scripture that will may just bring you comfort.
(Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Thanks for reading."
"Judy and I met at Purdue University where we shared adjoing rooms in the dorm. Judy wrote to her Mother every day, but one day she was very busy so she wrote a card which said "No time for anything," love Judy. Her Mother was much amused. Our friendship grew over the years as we stayed in contact with visits, letters and long telephone calls. Judy's kindness, humor, and thoughtful ways will always stay with me and make my memory of her a golden one."
"I have so many stories I could share and I only knew Judy for 7 or 8 years. Judy would tell one that took place when she was in high school. Her mom allowed Judy and her sisters to go on the train to the city. Judy had change for tickets but her mom pinned a $20. bill to the inside of her skirt for an emergency. Judy came safely home with it after a fun day. She was adventurous but always responsible.
The other story was the family trip she and John took with the girls. They all went camping that summer. Imagine a camper with two teenagers. Judy's eyes would twinkle as she told each story remembering the fun."
"Although it's been a long time since I last saw Judy... she is a fond memory of my past. We went to grammar school & high school together. Mostly I remember our grammar school years... where I spent many memorable hours at Judy's home. Her mother was a delight and always helped the other homeroom mothers', mine encluded, to make our Halloween and Christmas homeroom parties the best ever. You won't be forgotten."
"I remember our Out to Lunch group each month having a great time. I know Judith will be missed by all."
"Judy was one of my best friends when we were in HS. We both went to the same church etc. Our mothers were also friends. I have not seen her for many years as she went west and I went North. She still is a wonderful person and always will be in all of our memories."
"At every church there are some who always give more than others, folks who meld right in and are always part of the fabric of the church. John and Judy both were of that type of worshipper, always giving and always right in the thick of things. I will always know Judy as an organizer, opinionated, good humored, and a workhorse for the Lord. I am sure she is organizing something as I type. John will have a tough time getting past this loss in his life, so we must all keep him and the children and grand children in our prayers for peace."
"I met Judy through the Gingerbread Fair committee at our church. She not only served as treasurer, a big job, she used her sewing skills to create many lovely and creative items for the fairs. Later she and John were part of the Food Fun and Fellowship group I attended. Both of these groups will miss her smiling face and kind spirit. I have a mental picture of Judy piloting her scooter which was always loaded with supplies, price tags, crafting gear, an umbrella, cane, etc. If someone needed something, Judy had it to share! Which pretty much sums her up----she was definitely a giver. I was privileged to know Judy."
"I am grateful for the wonderful mother Judy was to her daughters. Her love and guidance, prepared them to be wonderful wives, mother and aunt. She was a loving grandmother to the grandchildren we share. She shared the many talents she had with others. We rejoice for all that she accomplished during her sojourn on earth. She will remain in all of our hearts as we recount the joyful memories we shared."
"I have known Judy approximately 6 yrs. I began attending GVPC in May 2009, joined Chancel choir first, then when I wanted to join Gingerbread and told of my need for a ride, she offered to come get me, as she lived less than a mile from me. She has also driven me to church on Sundays for a few years, and took me to several concerts at church. She was one of our 'lunch bunch' after craft meetings. She loved crafting and loved being involved as she was. She will be missed greatly."
"Lynnette and family...I was saddened to hear of your loss. Please know how very sorry I am. Looking at your mom's beautiful photos and especially the one above, I can see what a special person she was, so sweet and kind and gentle. And with such a loving look in her eyes. May warm and happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time."
"I knew Judy (or Mrs. Ashlock as I called her back then) when I was a teenager and into my 20's. She was always very kind and sweet to me. I especially appreciated the time she donated her talents to me by making our beautiful wedding cake. I am so sorry for your loss, and you are all in my prayers."
"Judith was always very kind and helpful to Girl Scout troop, she will be missed"
