Judy was born July 10, 1950 in Worcester, daughter of the late Alice (Mitchinson) and Francis Stoll. She grew up in Grafton and lived with her husband and family in Worcester.

For many years, Judy worked as a CNA at Autumn Village.

Judy treasured the gift of time spent with family, especially her sisters and close friends. On a summer day you might have found her visiting the White Mountains in New Hampshire or out shopping for hours even if she never spent a dime.

She will be remembered most for her generosity, her kindness and her sense of humor which always left her family wondering when the next practical joke was coming. She remained strong despite recent struggles with her health and was the true matriarch of her family and will be dearly missed.
