My beautiful and accomplished sister-in-law, Judy Green, died suddenly this week of a heart attack. Judy left her mark on Louisville. She and her husband Jimmy were dedicated parents of all their children, by birth, adoption and fostering. We enjoyed their hospitality on yearly visits to see the Green family.
I don’t know how Judy found 25 hours in every day year after year. She worked as a dental hygienist, got her DMD and as Dr.Green delivered life-saving care to the people most in need. She served in her City Council, and endured a tough political setback. When I saw her last summer she was managing a day care.
Did she take on too much? I’ll always wonder.
We were the same age, 57. She will be missed by many in her family and her community.
