  1. Mere words cannot express what you’ve always meant to me. My mentor, my sounding board, my rock. Our connection is eternal, will miss you 😘 I am not as eloquent with words as my brothers always are but let me try, All my life as we have shared all the girl things like shopping, especially for clothes as well as the passed on traditions from your own mother Eleanor. We’ve done sewing, ceramics, knitting, crocheting, needlework, embroidery, bingo as well as shared family recipes and a love for those “lust and dust� novels. We’ve gossiped and made plans and shared many dreams. You have been a part of every day of my life from those daily morning calls, as often with Rob as with me, to those often drop by visits for coffee and chatting or a meal.I remember my scouting days when you were our troop mother and shared your crafts with everyone. I recall your dislike of camping, you always said sleeping on the ground with no real bathroom was not fun.I cherish our time spent together. Summers in Hampton Bays and shopping at Hobbyland with grandma, our trip to Washington DC where we walked and walked. My heart is weeping but you’ve shown me it will not break. Your memory gives me strength to move forward. Your faith in all your children, myself, Michal and Philip will be proven in years to come as you are remembered each and every day in some way or another. You have touched so many. Please keep watch over us, say hello to grandma and grandpa and all the puppies who have preceded you to heaven, Always

  2. From our first days on the fourth floor of Bellevue Nursing School, and because our last names began with “M� we shared both professional and personal events during our three years at Bellevue and life’s journeys in the subsequent 57 years that have transpired. I will always remember her voracious appetite for reading , her amazing cross stitch ability and her positive outlook on life . I will miss our yearly birthday phone calls but will always remember a great friend.Joanne Meszaros Schmith

  3. My mother was a person who loved her family and friends. She lived selflessly, dedicating herself to her children and caring for their wellbeing. She cherished having grandchildren and was proud of the family she raised and having witnessed their growth and love. To her friends and extended family, to whom she mostly kept in touch by phone calls in recent years, your love and support through constant contact and occasional meetings meant the world to her as well. She left behind a legacy of the strength of will, the power of forgiveness, and the enjoyment of giving. She enjoyed crocheting, needle point projects, and the hours of work that she lovingly put into them. She was so satisfied when they were completed and so happy when she gave them away as gifts to family and friends. For those who may have one or more of her hand made gifts, please treasure them and think of her when you look upon them. She was a proud nurse who took her profession seriously and with joy. The friendships of her life through her schooling and work were the most enduring and important to her. Judy, my mom, kept her emotions in check most of her life and she rarely raised her voice, expressed anger, or projected any negative feelings. She had a difficult last few years physically which limited her mobility. But through it all, she loved to love, loved to laugh, and loved the life that she did her best to live. Thank you mom for bringing me into this world, sharing your lessons in life, for our shared joy of history and reading, for being a great mom and grandma, and giving of yourself without hesitation or expectation of anything in return except love and gratitude. We love you always and forever- Your memory will live within each of us. -Philip, Dawn, and your grandchildren Madeline, Caroline, and Gregory.

  4. Every life is a series of stories. While my mother was never a famous adventurer or celebrated artist, she was a hero to everyone she touched and left behind the beauty of her work in her needlepoint and crochet. She had (and has) so many friends, it is not possible to count. She was like a sister to her coworkers and extended family. To her children and grandchildren, she has been the port in the storm. To know her legacy, look to her family. She had said her goal as a mother was to raise children who were wise in their decisions, did no evil or harm, and who would be good to others. She felt she has succeeded and was proud of each of her offspring and her grandchildren. While preparing the memories of her life in the pictures for the visitations, I saw the variety of experiences she had with her family and friends. Her stories, both short and long, are all adventures. Thank you, each and every one of you, who were her friend, loved her, and helped care for her in her times of need. It gives me great comfort to know my mother shall not soon be forgotten and that–I am certain–every voice that speaks of her will do so fondly and say ‘she was a great woman.’

  5. Judy will always be remembered as a loving grandmother, wonderful friend and just an extremely gracious woman.She was easy to talk to and thoughtful of everyone. She made Christmas memorable with her fun “Santa� packages and was an avid reader who loved to share and swap books with friends and family. She will be missed but never forgotten. We will carry love for her always and she will go forth in life through her children and grandchildren who have been blessed to call her Mom and Grandma.

  6. My grandma saw the good in everyone and the light in every situation. She was selfless and open-minded and didnΓÇÖt have a mean bone in her body. She was smarter than I could ever even hope to be, but what I loved the most about her was how kind her heart was and how important family was to her. I have vivid memories of our whole family squeezing around her kitchen table when she made Swedish meatballs – itΓÇÖs still one of my favorite foods and it always reminds me of her. I looked forward to sending her postcards from every single country I have visited and talking to her about my experiences when I came home. We had the same adventurous and independent spirit. My heart hurts knowing I wonΓÇÖt see her for awhile, but I know sheΓÇÖll always be with me.
