While attending Mass at St. Charles, Judy met a young man, Antonio, who would eventually become her husband and together they started and raised their beautiful family.

For many years, Judy worked as an assembler for BASF and Fuji Films.

Judy loved her pets and spent countless hours taking wonderful care of them. She enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren and watching TV, especially her game shows, professional wrestling, the Red Sox and New England Patriots. She took great pride and joy watching the Red Sox win one more World Series.

Along with her husband Antonio, Judy is survived and will be deeply missed by her two loving sons, Patricio Colon, his wife Gloria and Antonio Colon, his wife Lucy, all of Woburn. Cherished grandmother of Antonio, Sheila, Alexander and Sophia, Devoted great-grandmother Romeo, Lola and Luci. Also survived by many friends and extended family in Ecuador.

Her wonderful and infectious smile will be missed by all. She has brought much love and joy to all who knew her. We are all lucky to have had her in our lives.
