Born in Bridgeport, CT on July 21, 1955, Judith lived her early childhood years in Webster before her family settled in Douglas. She was a resident of Douglas for the past 55 years.
A graduate of Douglas High School, she worked at a young age for her mother’s construction business, Percy Guiou Excavating. Always a hard worker, owning multiple businesses, starting with the Craft Buggy.

She worked there for many years before her retirement in 2015.
Judith was very involved in her children’s lives. She attended most of their activities and sports games. She was also a Cheerleading Coach with her daughter April for Douglas High School for 20 years, where she influenced countless young lives. Her homemade cooking and baking skills were second to none. She had a green thumb and grew beautiful flowers and vegetables, which she canned and pickled. Most of all however, Judy was a loving, full-time mother and wife, who always placed others ahead of herself. Family always came first.
