To those who knew her, it’s my sad chore to let you know of the
passing of Judy Marsh of Pensacola FL. Judy was formerly known on
this board as MetalUrges. In the past few years, economics had forced
her to change fields to web graphics, but she was still interested in
jewelry and metalwork. I talked with her over the net for years, and
finally a couple of summers ago when she wanted a break, she came up
to MA and stayed with me for a week. She was a great person who’d had
a hard time over the years but kept plugging away at building a
satisfying life while caring for an ailing mother and four children.
Last year she discovered she had breast cancer. Despite aggressive
treatment, it spread to her brain and finally her spinal cord, and
she spent her last months in misery. After a week in hospice, she
passed away on Dec 15.
Please join me in mourning a fine artist and a good person.
