Judy was one of the most gracious ladies that I had ever met. She was an inspiration to many. Her bringing Danny Thomas to Epsilon Sigma Alpha was one of the greatest things that she did. It still lives on and will continue forever. That gift has helped many children and will continue to help fulfill Danny's dream that no child should die in the dawn of life. She will be greatly missed by many. RIP our dear Judy.

Judy was an inspiration to all of her ESA sisters, both in the state of Indiana and Internationally. She was a pioneer in fundraising for St. Jude Children's Hospital. She took everything she did to the next level. Judy, you will be missed by many. As our ESA hearts are broken, you will lift-up others with your legacy.

Rest in peace, Judy. Your work here is done. You've helped shape what ESA is today and for that, we are grateful. You have left a significant footprint in many of the organizations that you were a part of and you will continue to inspire us through the year. Thank you Judy. God bless your family and friends.
