Judy and Lyle enjoyed travel and other social activities, including skiing and camping, and were long-time congregants of St. John's Lutheran Church in Altamont. Judy was a homemaker and worked for many years as a dental assistant for both Dr. Dan Burns and Dr. Stan Lis in Guilderland.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she is predeceased by her half-sister, Frances Hubbard. She is survived by her children, Carla S. Stefan (Douglas) of Voorheesville, Lori J. Walrath (Stephen) of Altamont, and Lyle "Tom" Newcomb (Rachelle) of Davis, California, as well as six grandchildren, Lesley and Robert Stefan, Lydia and James Walrath, and Juliana and Lyla Newcomb.
