Judy was born in Dixon on February 16, 1939. She graduated from Dixon High School in 1957. She married her sweetheart Richard Huyett in December 1958. Richard and Judy moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1959.
Richard and Judy loved each other so very much, and they built a full life together over 57 years. Judy was a dedicated wife and mother first and foremost. Judy raised their three children while Richard worked in the transparent armor field. Judy was a devoted, fun-loving mother who always gave of her time and heart. She loved to cook and enjoyed playing piano. Together Richard and Judy taught their children the values of honesty, integrity, and how a kind heart can mean so much in this world.
Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Lavond and Ethel Vorhis; and her husband Richard, who passed away in October 2015.
