Jude is a very sweet lady, and when she would sing hymns, it was a angels voice that you heard. Debbie & I had the honor to be a visiting teacher, & home teacher for many years, and we will miss her. We are sure she is happy at home with Heavenly Father, and other family members. Love to all the family

We are so sad to learn that Jude passed. She was a great lady and a big influence for good when I (Stephanie) joined the church in 1971. Her wonderful family is a tribute to her. RIP Jude. We know she is celebrating with her family members who were there to greet her. Hugs and our love.

Cathy (Katie) and Richard Costello

Jude was an elect daughter of God. Always a shining example of love and grace. We learned so much watching her live life to the fullest. Her daily Facebook posts wishing her loved ones happy birthday were a fun way to know, at least by name, of her legacy of love. Blessings to you all as you prepare to celebrate you Momma, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, friend and neighbor.

Kathy and Troy Burgon

Jude is one of the most loving individuals I have ever met. The world is a better place because if you, Jude!! 💗. You will be missed!!
