Judy Bedell was one of our bright lights at UUC. She became active at UUC over 20 years ago. In her time as a member, Judy co-led efforts to bring intergenerational groups of UUC members to Nicaragua to build wells through the organization, El Porvenir. She was central in starting UUC’s chapter of UUs for Justice in the Middle East following being part of a UU delegation to Israel/Palestine. Judy taught Wellspring and was active in a Women’s Spirituality Group for many years. She loved this church community and was loved by many at UUC. 

Judy was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia near the beginning of the pandemic and her health changed greatly over the past 18 months. She passed away peacefully, with loved ones nearby, on the morning of October 11. Her memorial is tentatively scheduled for the afternoon of January 29.
