About Judy


Judy Lynn Plaumann showed us the power of unconditional love and support. Judy was caring, nurturing, and always watched out for the ones she loved. Our mother, Judy, was the best of humanity, providing a great example of humility and helpfulness. 

Judy was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer as a non-smoker and lost her life tragically in a car accident--she was on her way home from a chemotherapy treatment session. Shock, sadness, and anger barely scratch the surface of the feelings that arise when thinking about this tragedy. These feelings never go away, that is grief; the endless and empty reminder of loss. Judy Plaumann was our mother, and we were beyond lucky to have her be our guide through the early stages of our life. 


Judy's Way is the embodiment of all her life lessons. We at Judy's Way are here to help in the most difficult of times. Judy's Way is a nonprofit that provides support for those in need. That is who Judy was and that is what Judy's Way will do.
