Judith had an unrivaled love for life, dedicating all she did to mentoring and supporting youth. Judith was a life-long member of the guiding community; she was adored as both a Guide as well as a Guider/Leader. Coming to Canada as a Nanny in 1993, she became a Child and Youth Worker in 2001. Judith pulled on her Catholic faith as a Foster Parent with the CCAS. Judith’s passion for life garnered her respect and admiration in her work, volunteer, and personal life. A love of travel took Judith across the globe, accumulating friends every step of the way.
