Deepest sympathy to Judy's family and she will be greatly missed! I can remember that she wanted a motorcycle for her graduation from CCHS Class of 1960(Judy Bright Shunk). So sorry that we have lost another classmate. RIP Judy and I know how you loved to ride!5

Judy was a grand lady who followed her heart. She was always willing to get involved with anything music-she played in bands, was in the Potter-Mckean players as an actress and dancer. She was one of the founders of the Old-Tyme Music assoc.with her husband Bob, and others, and was a regular at Thurs nite jams at Olga's.She always helped new musicians. I will always remember her as a great lady, and a good friend. Judy will be missed by a great many folks....we loved you Judy. Rest now, with Bob.

Judy and I graduated together from the Class of 1960, she and along with me (Judy) were among some of the 5 or 6 Judy's in that class.
Prayers go out to her family in their time of loss. She was always an upbeat person.

The news of Judy’s passing saddens my heart. Although, I never told Judy this, I looked up to her as a role model of what it means to grow older successfully. She was beautiful, creative, actively involved in the community, and was not afraid to express herself or to embrace life in its fullest. She had her own confident sense of style and was one cool lady. My thoughts and prayers go out to Judy’s family and dear friends. She will be missed.

R.I.P JUDY. I have known her and her family for many years, what a tragedy. She was my Avon lady and we had some good talks and laughs together. My condolences to the Shunk family. Judy will be missed by many.

Judy was the most beautiful, caring, thoughtful person I've had the pleasure of knowing. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. You never seen her in her car in the summer. She was always on one of her motorcycles. So please, for the record, let it be known that she did not lose control of her motorcycle. There was a dog involved. Whether she hit the dog or the dog ran into her, in either scenario, that is what caused the accident. I am not trying to place any blame on anyone. I would just feel better that the truth be known. Judy, you will be so greatly missed by so many!

So sorry, Judy. Wish we could have gotten to know you better. Saw you last year when we played at Crook Farm with the gang. Rest in Peace~The Band Anastazja
