The former Judith Trombi was born Dec. 9, 1941, in Montreal, daughter of the late Joseph and Florence (Garro) Trombi, and graduated from J.E. Murphy High School in Hurley in 1959. She worked as a cook at Villa Maria in Hurley, as a sewing tech at Netz Glove in Pence and cooked at Squeak's Log Cabin in Montreal for many years.

Judy loved her annual trips to Las Vegas and Wisconsin Dells, hosting family gatherings, and especially loved Christmas time with her family. She enjoyed knitting and playing darts and enjoyed spending time with her canine companion "Justice" and her great-grandchildren. She was everyone's "Granny." We will miss her dearly.
