I'm so incredibly sad to have to share that we've lost our Omio
. I got an email letting us know that Judy Riley passed away in April. We learned it was due to complications from pneumonia. Here is the obituary
I'm sure all of our hearts and prayers will be with Judy's family. She's been missed over the past few months and it won't be the same here without her.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Santa Clarita Valley Scholarship Foundation. (Judy was the president of this foundation). Website: www.scvsf.org
Address: SCV Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 220236, Santa Clarita, CA 91322.
Her avatars always made me laugh, because they seemed so unlike her. I'm so grateful to have met Judy in person too. In looking at her gallery, I noticed her last layout was honored as the layout of the day in February.
We'll miss you Omio.
A note from Judy's husband, Mike, shared with permission:
My Judy developed pneumonia and it overwhelmed her lungs. She was in icu for 43 days and her heart finally gave out. She passed on 4/10 15 minutes before her 69th birthday. Our daughter and I were with her when she passed. We had her memorial service/celebration of life two weeks later. We displayed many of her digital layouts before and after the services. Judy was cremated and I have her ashes. When my time comes I will be cremated also and our children will spread our ashes together.
Judy was president of the Santa Clarita Valley Scholarship Foundation and we asked for donations to the Foundation in lieu of flowers. So far she has received 34 donations and over $3500. A scholarship in Judy's name for the full amount will be given to a deserving high school Senior next spring. Our family has also established a scholarship in honor of Judith Ann that will be given annually.
Judith Ann loved working with DSP and designing her layouts. She specialized in showing off her grandchildren and they loved her for it.
If anyone wants more info or would like to donate to the scholarship fund, [info shared above]. I can give them the contact info for the Scholarship Foundation.
Thank you for the kind note and remembering my Judy.
