As I think of family, Aunt Judy is such a part of my growing up years. I remember many times sitting around one of our Aunt's kitchen table and all of my wonderful Aunts and my Mom being there. I felt so much love and caring from these wonderful women. They have certainly shaped my life. There was always laughter and our family loved to be together. How fortunate I am to be a part of such an awesome family. We are all so different but all feel love and encouragement from Aunt Judy, our Aunts, cousins, and of course Grandma Walker! What a crazy and amazing family! Love you all. Shelley Droste, March 28, 2020 Thursday 3/26/2020 I mailed a card to the Shirk Family. Enclosed is a letter with a memory of mine. On August 8, 1986 our daughter, Karen (age 18), was in a fatal car accident on Hwy 121. Around 12:30 p.m. the door bell rang. Judy was there with a minister from Lewisville and some The Colony policemen. One of them asked me to take a seat. They told me about Karen's fatality and Judy was standing in my living room with tears in her eyes as I tried to process what I was told. She was one person I knew, at that moment, who was aching with me. I never forgot that she came to be of some support for us. There were many times our sons were at the Shirk house in The Colony enjoying tv or jumping on the trampoline. Sadly, Dennis broke his ankle I think when he was jumping with Eric. Thank you though for your hospitality to our family. Even though our paths have not crossed in many years, I consider your Mom my friend who recognized how difficult it was to bury a child. May she have eternal rest Oh Lord. Thoughts are with all of you at this sad time. God bless you.
Monica Brophy, March 27, 2020 Our deepest sympathy to the family. Have known Morry and Judy for many years. Being a part of the Lennox R&D move to Texas is why we became friends and neighbors. I always felt right at first, we had a connection of sort because we both had five children all about of the same age. We all were moved here away from our family and closest friends in Marshalltown. None of us had the finances to go much of any place so we (the 4 of us) would get together and play cards and have fun. After a while Morry and Judy installed a pool in the back yard and we would go to their house along with our another neighbor from Marshalltown Tom and Sid Benge. We were not able to see one another very often do to busy lives and their move to Farmerville. Once connected on Face Book was easier to communicate. So sorry for your loss as I know she will be deeply missed. Sharon
Sharon & Terry Peak, March 27, 2020 Mom, My heart aches for dad and my siblings. Thank you for being the most caring, loving person a child could ask for. You loved everyone unconditionally. All our friends growing up always felt welcome and part of the family. Your advice were treasured by us and all who seeked it from you. I miss you and love you.
