Judie attended the University of Missouri, and was a member of the sorority, Pi Beta Phi. She was an accomplished singer.

She spent many years working in Doylestown, as a medical receptionist for Doylestown Internal Medicine. Judie was an avid bridge player. She was a member of Doylestown Presbyterian Church where she sang in the choir and volunteered in the Church Office.
