I met Judy when we, and only 7 other seniors moved into Wildpine Retirement Residence on June 15th, 2019. The building was still under construction and Judy along with our other new friend Carol connected immediately. We three went on to share a close and rewarding friendship as we settled into a whole new way of life that presented us with many happy shared moments. From the first I realized that Judy was unique. I had heard of her history of kindness and giving and her devotion to her family and friends. She encouraged us to reach out and try painting and proceeded to give us a weekly class that was fun and educational. We have some lovely pieces to remember by. She also took time to meet and greet newcomers and to offer help to those in need. I always told anyone looking to borrow an item to go see Judy who I am convinced had half of Canadian tire in her room!! She always had time to listen and guide and always with a smile. I miss her daily presence in my life especially our shared laughter which came easily to the three of us. I believe my life was enhanced from knowing this truly loving and caring person and I am grateful to have been able to call her my friend for the time we shared at Wildpine.
Our deepest condolences. Heaven gained another angel and she will be deeply missed. Sending thoughts and prayers.
