  1. Rory and family, I offer my deepest condolences. 💛 Heaven received a nurse with a heart of gold. 💛 Judy’s already missed by sooo many. She touched so many of our hearts and left a definite impression. She was so much more to me, than just a supervisor She was my mentor and friend. Her smile and laughter were sooo contagious on and off the stage. The bar that she set as a nurse and a supervisor is very high, very few even come close to achieving. It’s been an honor knowing and working beside Judy for soo many years at CMHHIP. We offer our prayers 🙏 to carry you threw this difficult time. Love, Lisa M Fernandez RN

  2. I knew Judy as a next door neighbor from the time she was born until her young adulthood. I was a few years older than her when I needed a roommate in Lincoln, NE and she needed a place to live. In spite of our age difference we had a lot in common. Will always remember Judy with fondness! Prayers for all her family to receive comfort from God during this time!
