Judy graduated from North Little Rock High School in 1960 where she earned an academic scholarship to Arkansas Tech University. After graduating from ATU, Judy taught English, Journalism, and Home Ec at Lonoke Ark. High School from 1966-1985. During her tenure at Lonoke, she received a Commendation from then Governor Bill Clinton for instituting a "Meritorious Advanced Teaching Program". In 1985 Judy received a Master's Degree in Home Ec from the University of Arkansas-Conway and moved to Atlanta Texas where she taught journalism and Home Ec. from 1985-1988. Continuing her education, in 1988 Judy received another Master's Degree, this one in counseling, from Stephen F. Austin College. She then worked as a counselor at Atlanta Tx. from 1988 until 1996, when she moved to Lewisville Tx. to be closer to her daughter and granddaughter. Judy continued her career as a counselor until retiring from Huffhines Middle School in nearby Denton Tx. Upon moving to McAlester in 2006, Judy, always active, joined the First Presbyterian Church where she served as a deacon and member/officer of the Presbyterian Women's Group. She was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, McAlester Literary Club, and member/past President of the McAlester PEO. Judy was a participant in several bridge clubs and played golf, thoroughly enjoying the fellowship of the McAlester CC Women's Golf Association. Judy, "Aunt JuJu", will be sorely missed by family and friends, but we can all take solace in that she is now playing golf in heaven! A Memorial service will be held at 2:00 Saturday, May 18th at the First Presbyterian Church, McAlester.
