Favorite color: sea green
Favorite quote: "Friends and laugh lines are life's finest trophies".
Favorite other stuff: sailing (oh big surprise). She volunteers for a variety of good causes, to include a long career of volunteering for The Office of the Registrar of Voters as a "poll monitor". She hasn't missed an election, which is great for all us. We know there will be an accurate and honest count with Judy at the helm !
