In memoriam: Judy Causey
Judith Ann (Judy Crum) Causey, who passed away Sept. 20, will be remembered Sunday, Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in a Celebration of Life service at Academy for Advanced & Creative Learning, 2510 N. Chestnut St.
Requested by the family, the location was worked out with School District 11 in recognition of Judy's 30 years as librarian at Pike Elementary, which had operated in that building from 1956 to 2009. She retired in 2006.
Judy was born March 31, 1939. She raised four children, three of whom survive her.
As a librarian, “she infected countless children with a love for literacy,” her obituary states. “She read books to the kids with passion and introduced them to the power of stories through the possum puppet, Oscar, who retired with her in 2006.”
