Judith was a dedicated teacher having taught K-3 in Millis, Massachusetts, Montgomery County, Maryland, and Dallas, Texas. She was active in volunteer work at the UK Hospital Women’s Auxiliary and at Temple Adath Israel, where she was active in the temple sisterhood and served as Temple President. Judith enjoyed hosting UK Biochemistry faculty at her home and particularly loved traveling with her husband, having visited countries all over the world. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
