    Miss Judy was the sweetest💜 I met her when I went to work for Walmart shortly after we moved to Winnie. I was trying to make baby doll clothes for my daughter for Christmas ~ she offered to help me learn (she was very patient) I was so thankful for her help. She will be greatly missed 💜
    Prayers for your family ~ so sorry for your loss 💜🙏✝️
