“My sympathies for the family of Judy. She was quite a character. My husband knew her when he lived in Larrabee and I met her later in my hearing aid business. It was enjoyable to have her tell me stories of the restaurant in Larrabee which we now have. She was witty and funny and lived quite a life. I was happy to meet her and share that history. She was one of a kind! ”

“Growing up in Larrabee- Judy’s cafe was the hot spot to get the cheap candy! I’ll always remember bringing in handfuls of pennies and making Judy count it to see how many of them penny tootsie rolls I could buy. I have many memories of Judy- she was a feisty lady with a great personality! Keep my loved ones in line up there Judy!! ”
