    So sorry Bonnie, Heather and Charlene for the loss of your Mom. I remember when she and I worked together on the Brownie Pack when Bonnie and Karen were Brownies. She was a great leader and so young to be leaving us. xoxo

  • Nadine Wilkie says:

    I was saddened to see one of my high school friends passing. Our parents knew each other and my older brother had been friends with her brother Bob. Judy was a gentle, loving, and creative individual. I am sure there are many loving memories of this special person. My condolences to all the family members and friends that she leaves behind. Nadine

    Bonnie, Heather and Charlene, it has been far too long, our family has always loved yours. We have so many wonderful memories, so many wonderful thoughts. It is so hard to not think of Judy and Dale and not smile or even laugh. Our times together were always filled with joy and happiness. My sister and I love you all and a celebration of life is truly what we shared every-time we came together. I am so thankful for having shared life with Judy and Dale, the world is so much richer for the Chisholm family.. Thank you for letting us share your world. I send you love and light, give each other a big warm hug for me!!

  • Dorene & Joe Shuba & family says:

    Charlene, Heather and Bonnie and families, our very deepest condolences on the passing of your mother Judy, we cannot express enough how much you all mean so much to us, we have never had neighbours that were just part of our family and made our neighborhood such a special place to live and have all our girls ( yes ALL girls) grow up ) and be the envy of the surrounding neighborhood that your old home was purchased by an adoring family when it came up for sale just so their childhood memories would be met. We all got along so perfectly, we had the pleasure of feeling Charlene kick in her mommy’s tummy, Judy made us all so connected, she was forever looking after us, providing plants for exchanges, and keeping me up to date on what she put in her jounals she would keep on the table to write in so that your girls would have even more insight of her life and know who she really was for her legacy to you. I could always make extra big salads so that there was leftovers to take over for Charlene so she could enjoy especially the Italian greens for her healthy diet., Judy always returning the washed bowl. It was a fun thing to do. I tried to send over enough plastic containers for the painting lessons your mom taught, we were always helping each other with such little things to save money, or get something we could share, grape plant cuttings and many plants to give each other new starts and feelinf satisfied that we again saved costs, a challenge we did for some 26 ? years. We missed you all when the move was made to Hall Road, but only until your Mom would have us over, to ee her yardwork, planting, wild birds they fed , the fish and turtles in the pond, or for dinner,, where we saw her latest paintings. Judy was a great painter an artist she achieved and displayed to the pleasure of many, we have a scenic framed picture from her early painting days. Judy made the best ever Welsh Cakes, and pork & beans with a recipe of grandmother in France , I still treasure so dearly just everything Judy and I shared, such a talented, kind and giving person, a once in a lifetime friendship, We were so busy living our family lives that a camera did not seem important or necessary…..until now when we would like to review our good times, like hatching chicks, having hens to lay eggs, we had so much to learn and share with each other. I believe this rare and wonderful neighbourhood is almost one of a kind, and Judy was the one who put such emphasis on that especially when Dad Dale would have his yearly neighbourhood BBQ he made with his salmon catch when they visited and went ocean fishing with Judy!s relatives there.. So many memories, not enough space or time to touch on all the good things that Judy,,and Dale, brought or shared in our lives. One things for a giggle, Judy asked us to keep an eye on Charlene,,and her then current boyfriend…while they made a fishing trip, not too long before they moved to Hall Rd. area, , but only because she was alone as the other girls were no longer living at home..👍🏼❤️ Our deepest regrets for your loss, and ours, neighbours Dorene & Joe Shuba, and family Cindy, Shelley, Lisa & Natalie

  • Janice Selbie says:

    I loved visiting your home when Judy was there. Her desire to grow and share her artistry with others was inspirational to me. I will always remember your mom as a lovely and creative soul, sitting at the kitchen table with the guitar on her lap and a smile on her face.
