Judy Cox Rutrough was a special sweet lady! She always had a smile on her face and kind word to say every time I saw her.
A friend,

Judy became a friend of mine in high school after sharing some classes and being on the cheerleading squad together. She was a kind, caring person and I have fond memories of our friendship. I ran into Judy last Spring in Roanoke and I was glad she recognized me after 39 years! She shared with me her health problems, but seemed positive and upbeat. I was hoping for a better outcome and longer life for her. I was sad to hear of her passing in February. I'm sure she left behind many who will cherish her memory.

I remember you all through our school years. You had the pretties eyes and always had a smile on your face. You were a friend to everyone and everyone loved you. I miss you, wish you could be with us.

Judy and I were good friends thru grade school, kind of lost touch thru high school years, our Moms graduated together at Check school and we stayed in touch thru the years. She couldn't look at you and not smile.
Missing you!

When Millie and I met recently to talk about our class memorial, we were sharing memories of Judy. I remember so well our first grade class with Mrs. Reed. Judy missed her mother very much and often came to school in tears. I always adored her beautiful hair and little burgundy Oxford shoes. We were friends throughout grade school and high school. We practiced cheers in my backyard. She was always so kind and caring. We kept in touch over the years. In January I received a note from her saying that Hospice was offering support to her. I am so sad that she will not be with us in July.

Today my thoughts are on Judy as we are about to celebrate our 40th Class Reunion. I was close to Judy during elementary school years. I can always remember that she cried a lot during the first grade. I don't know if she missed her Mom or missed being at home, probably both, but it took her the whole school year to get adjusted to school. I remember her crying all morning because Mrs. Garnett Reed could not find me. It was the first day back to school after Christmas break (that was when we could call it Christmas break) and I, being the kid that wanted to get through school fast, went to the second grade class. That is a story of it's own, but I remember returning to the first grade class where I should have been and Judy had cried until her eyes were swollen because they couldn't find me. I remember that Judy always had a smile on her face, after the first grade.... She was kind and sweet to everyone and was funny too. We are going to miss Judy at our class reunion.
