“Judy is one of many great examples of the work ethic people who live and work in Logansport have, and in many cases, they remain loyal to their employers and focus on doing the kind of work others really appreciate,” Mayor Dave Kitchell said Thursday. “Sometimes great employees take great satisfaction from their job and supporting others, and Judy and many others deserve recognition for their performance and it’s something no one should take for granted.”
Judy and her husband, Keith, will celebrate their 52nd anniversary Tuesday. Originally from Plymouth, Iowa, Judy moved to Logansport with Keith 39 years ago when he became manager of a local company. The couple has three grown sons and five grandchildren. She is a former Sunday school and Bible school teacher and attended Ivy Tech.
