She backpacked the Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness, went camping, so enjoyed fishing the rivers and lakes outside of Cooke City, she bow-hunted, Skied both Nordic and Alpine, snowmobiled and loved to sea kayak with her daughter Jenny in Alaska. Judy was also talented artistically. She practiced the ancient Bavarian art of egg carving and enjoyed painting.
