    Judy’s family you have my condolences. With Judy’s passing, there will be another hole in the hearts of those of us in the Couch High School class of 1962.

    Judy Martin was always very loving and kind. Although my daughter, Mariah Martin, was distanced from her by my divorce to her step-son, she always felt she was her Grand mother and loved the limited visits with her. Judy always made her feel loved. We’ll greatly miss her <3
