    So sorry to hear of Judith’s passing. I worked with Judith at NTI and found her to be a very dedicated teacher. I know her family meant everything to her. Judith will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear about Judith. She did enjoy gardening and I did enjoy when she brought fresh veggies to the office! She also enjoyed being in the classroom working with the students. She was mentor to many.

    I extend my sympathy to Trina and family on your loss.

    I was saddened to see that one of my classmates from Fayetteville High has left us. I haven’t seen Judy, but once, since we graduated. Now I know that I missed out. She was always fun to be around.
    May you enjoy the good memories she left with you.

    Judith, or Ms. Murry, as I preferred to call her in class, was a wonderful person. She and I had many talks and exchanged stories. I will miss her.

    One thing she did was get my name in print, when she had our class do a cookbook for a class project, then sell the cookbook to raise funds for student benefits. She always had such good ideas for class projects. Judith, I will see you again in the afterlife.

    Judith was one of my favorite teachers at Remington. I was her “suck-up” student and even made her a “suck-up” bucket filled with suckers. She brought that up every time I ran into her. Even my children were in awe of her. The world has lost a real character and I have lost a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    I just wanted to express my condolences to Judith’s family and friends. Although Judith and I only knew each other in high school (47 years ago), I was saddened to learn of her death. She was a very nice lady and I remember her well. I’m sorry for your loss.
