She will be forever remembered driving her favourite Corvette while either owning Panhandler stores in both Truro and New Glasgow or managing Maritime Marlin Travel (in which she would wish to apologize to any travel clients that she inadvertently sent in the opposite destinations of their wishes! She asks their forgiveness with a wink, smile and laugh. In later years, she thoroughly enjoyed spending her winters with her “Lauderdale by the Sea” community of friends in Florida. A loving mother, sister, step grandmother, she put her family above all others things and always had a smile for those she encountered. The family wishes to thank Dr. Cortney Smith, Dr. David Henderson, Dr. Don Rowe and all the Palliative Care Unit and VON for all the loving care they gave to Mom. By Judie’s request (and social restrictions), there will be no visitation or funeral services. Cremation has taken place. A family gathering will be held at a later date.
