We are sending out deepest sympathies to your family. Judy was our "go-to" person at State Farm. She was the reason we have stayed with the company for so many years. She always offered a kind voice and a caring inquiry about our family. It´s clear that her care and service for others was broad-reaching. She will be greatly missed. Ryan & Jenny Rastok

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Judy's. We are so sorry for your loss. Can even imagine that this is true. Judy was such a sweet and caring person. We visited many times when we'd meet in a store or at Hallmarks. She was such a "beatiful" person. Again our condolences.

Jim, Jason & Family - I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Judy. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met and worked with and just cannot believe she is actually gone. It was such an honor to work with her and consider her my mentor in learning new aspects of the job. She will be missed very much. Shelley Black coworker at State Farm
