Judy was born on June 1, 1948, to the late James Shaw and Jean A. Bent in Marion, Ohio. Judy loved her family and her two late dogs, Sissy, and Sam. She enjoyed going to garage sales and resale shops. While staying at home Judy loved watching cooking shows, the Hallmark channel, and rearranging her furniture.
