So sorry for your loss; Judith was the wife of my dad's (John Walswick) father's (Kenneth Walswick) cousin, Gilman. He vaguely remembers Judith from a Christmas party at their home in Sharon, ND when he was about five years old. ~Angela Walswick (John's daughter; Lakeville MN).

June and family, so sorry you have lost your mom, just wanted you to know I am thinking of you all at this time. Such a blessing to have had your mom for such a very long time.

So sorry to hear of Judith's passing. I remember the letters she would write to the kids. They were very sweet. She was a hard working lady who enjoyed the simple things in life! She will be missed by her family and friends.
