Judy is survived by her husband Joseph Newby, son Kevin Chudy (Jennifer), daughter Dawn Altomonte (Joe), daughter Emily, and grandchildren Aleksandr, Ekaterina, Inessa, Joella, and Charlotte.  She is also survived by several cousins and close friends. Judy was dedicated “archery mom” to her children, rarely missing a tournament, traveling to Long Beach, CA, to Salt Lake City, UT, to Ypsilanti, MI to watch them shoot. She was an avid member of Calico Cutters Quilting Guilt, enjoyed gardening, and loved to bowl with St. Dorothy’s Bowling League. Judy was predeceased by her parents Charles L. Shaffer and Ruth M. Shull (nee Church).
