She was a past president of the Lunenburg Homemakers. “Judy”was known for her expertise in packing sandwiches, securing them from coal dust or nuclear fallout. She was also a skillful canner. She pickled, preserved, dried, and froze anything and everything that FW grew in his large garden and had fair ribbons to recognize her canning talent.
