    Judy and I were partners in crime during our time at Cleary. She was an amazing friend, mentor and teacher. Walter, David and Judy I am so sorry for your loss. Just know she was a true warrior in and out of the job. There's not a day I don't think of her. If I knew what happened I would've came to pay my respect. I will donate to the lung cancer society in her honor!!!!

    Judy was a total professional and a joy to work with. She reached deep to make sure her students were given every advantage of learning and skill. She expressed her opinions and then moved on. Her fingerprints remain all over the school program at the Cleary School. She is sorely missed.
