Judith Diane Duffy,
Judith Diane Duffy, 70, of Smethport,PA died Thursday (February 26, 2015) in The Pavilion at Bradford Regional Medical Center, Bradford.

Mrs. Duffy was a graduate of Niagara Falls High School and had worked in health care with several facilities over the years.

Judy loved cooking, canning and preserving. She did much of this from her gardens that she grew. She liked sewing for her family and household. She was also an avid sports fan, especially of football and basketball. Judy found relaxation in reading. She enjoyed non-fiction, since she tended to be a no-nonsense individual with a good sense of humor. She was a one-of-a-kind woman who mastered anything she put her mind to. She will be sadly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
