Offer Condolences for the family of Judith A. WalbyPrint Obituary & Condolences
I just found out about Judith, i work with her at Gray Drug Store back many
Year’s ago , she was a very loving person and will be missed dearly.
My heart goes out to the entire family.
I would like to hear more of her life if one of the children would email me.
I will send a special request for your mom and plenty of masses for her
I wish I had stayed more in contact with her.
As a gift of love and friendship, the carmelites are remembering Judith
in five novenas of masses beginning on St. Valentines Day. In addition, the Marianist will also begin on St Valentines Day but will last the whole year.
With Deepest Sympathy The Good Lord will gove her Rest.
