Judy married Berny S. Preuss in 1950 and has two sons, Gary M. Preuss and Mark A. Preuss. Judy re-entered the work force and for 33 years, worked as a legal secretary. She was proud of her association with the many attorney’s she worked with on a daily basis, many of whom still remember her. She loved her many friends until the day she died. They were all faithful in their friendship and brought comfort to her as she battled lung cancer the last 2 years of her life. Judy had a wonderful spirit, she loved music, dancing, cooking gardening and walking. She walked the neighborhoods of San Luis Obispo making many new friends along the way and visited with those she already knew. Judy loved life! She had a fantastic memory and loved telling stories, whether about San Luis Obispo, her employment at the Fremont Theatre as an usherette, her family life or funny experiences she had in her life. Judy could find a line from a song to sing for just about any situation in life. She loved to laugh, and her stories entertained those around her. Her favorite time of year was Christmas and she always filled her home with Christmas decorations and lights to celebrate the season. We’ll always think of Judy at Christmas time. She was predeceased by her father, mother, sister, brother and niece Judie Roza.
