Judy was part of our family for the past 22 years so this was a devastating loss. She was a very dear friend and “grandma-in-law” who was loved by our whole family. We are really saddened by her passing. We have so many wonderful memories of good times together. Love and prayers for Glen, Kristen and kids ️️️

Glen, I’m so sorry to hear the news of your mother’s passing . She was such a sweet and funny person. I always enjoyed being around her, as well as, being a friend. We did a lot of things together while you and Charlie were growing up , from preschool to going to and graduating from University of Missouri. What a wonderful person and a wonderful life. She will be missed sincerely
Love to you and God be with you.

Glen and family, relatives on the Neth side, friends on the Riley side, we never got to visit any of you while Judy was in Sarasota but we are thankful that she spent her life close by with your care and love. Being a first cousin, Judy was my only female cousin. I followed her through elementary, high school and college. She was dear to us and we’re pleased to have had her in our life. Bless you all.
Love, Mike and Lorie Weber
