So sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. I went to Belmont Tech with her and we had lots of classes together. We sat together and helped each other out. She was very nice and so funny. Prayers for the family.

Judy was a wonderful friend beginning in July 1963 when we both were hired in the accounting department at PPG Industries south of Moundsville. We carpooled for years and shared many laughs and great times together. She was a kind, kind person. I have never forgotten her these many decades later. My deepest sympathies to the Smith family.

Boy’s we are so sorry to read about your mom. Mr. Clutter (Hoop) knew her all of his childhood I became friends with her our freshman year at Union. I remember when each of you were born. My, time goes by so fast.
I loved your Mom – she was the kind of person that never forgot her friends. We had some special memories and we have special memories of you boys growing up in our little home town of McMechen.
Each one of you were loved as individuals.
Sadness won’t last forever – remember the good times.
I am sorry for your loss. XOXO

I worked with Judy at Moundview for many years. She always had a smile on her face. Judy never said a harsh word to anyone.
