She was born on December 26, 1936, in Erie, a daughter of the late Lynn Porter Sr. and Estella (Hawley) Porter.

Judy graduated from Fairview High School.  She was a member of the Federated Church in East Springfield.  She enjoyed sewing, quilting, gardening, big band music and all kinds of wildlife.  When necessary she worked outside the home but her greatest joy was caring for her family.  She knew each of her children intimately and always knew what to say or do for each one in good times and not so good times.

Missing her bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck love, are her daughters: Janice Behringer (Robert) of East Springfield, Sherry Metzenbacher (Eric) of Girard, Laurie Rausch of Guys Mills and daughter in law Karen Markham of Albion.  Additionally 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren will forever miss her.  She is further survived by sisters: Joyce Hatch (Pete) of Bemus Point, NY and Karen Barton of Fairview and a brother Lynn Porter Jr. (Dee) of Cleveland, OH and many nieces and nephews.
