Judy was raised by her Aunt June and Uncle Norman Shores with her cousins Susan, Norma and Kathie. They grew up together on Orchard Avenue in El Cerrito, California. Family brought Judy to Wisconsin in her retirement.
Judy had a hard life but didn’t let life harden her. She had a heart of gold, a quick wit and a great sense of humor.
She loved the movies and popcorn, ribs on the grill, all animals (especially fox), quilting and she collected rabbit figurines and artwork. They couldn’t be cutesy rabbits, they had to be a little bit scary and mischievous looking.
She had a great laugh and shared fantastic and unbelievable stories of her younger days. Like when she co-owned a drag strip in California.
She lived on little but would give you the shirt off her back. She was truly the “sweet” in our family.
Judy passed away peacefully on Bastille Day. A fitting day as she learned she was French when doing her Ancestry DNA a few years back.
We will truly and deeply miss her, especially on Halloween when she loved to wear her crazy hat or dress like a witch and pass out candy to the hundreds of kids on Oakwood Avenue in Oconomowoc.
She is survived by these cousins who loved her like a Sister or Aunt, Susan (Ronald) Bruno, Kathie (Ed)Shores-Patt, Christina (Scott) Donald, Kevin (Jennifer) Hoeth and their children Madelyn, Jacob and Lucas and many friends.
We love you Jude!
