Judi was married to Wayne Pendry her sweetheart in high school ✔️. He worked in the Shipyard. I ran into her at Tabb high school as we both had kids attending there at the same time(1992ish) and she was a widow at that time.

I loved Judi from afar but never had the nerve to tell her.

I saw her for the first time at church---East Hampton Baptist. She was the prettiest angel in the choir and was in the baptist equivalent of the Girl Scouts.

Judi was a sweet young woman......she was kind to this ignorant mountain hick when many were not.
