She dedicated her career to doing hair for 53 years beginning with her first salon, Judy’s Klip N Kurl in Trimble, then moving to Smithville and spending her remaining 35 years in Kearney. Judy loved her clients, listening to all their stories and spending time with them in the salon.  She and her husband, Ken, ran J & K Country Statuary for 15 years in Kearney.

Judy was passionate about cooking and shared her love through cooking for her family and friends, and even a few strangers.  She enjoyed playing Bingo and fishing, and an occasional trip to the casino.  She loved all of her flowers.

Our Sincere Condolences

Judy always made everyone welcome in their home. My daughter took her 1st steps in her salon when we were visiting. She always had a smile, a kind word, and great food!!

So sorry to hear of the loss of Judy. We all loved coming to Kearney for the Fry Family reunions that Judy and Kenneth put on for all of us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and big hugs to cousin Kenneth Fry.

I started going to Judy shortly after my husband and I moved to Kearney about 25 years ago.  We also played Bingo with her from time-to-time.  Judy was a very sweet person and we both enjoyed knowing her and Kenny.  I know she will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.  Rest in peace Judy.
