Sad News to Share

It is with great sadness that I share the news that on Monday, March 31, 2014, Judy Percy, a WNC client, volunteer and friend, had a heart attack and died while doing what she loved to do best – serving others – at the WNC Store.

Judy PercyJudy was usually one of the first to arrive and the last to leave.  She enjoyed her cup of coffee (several usually, as she’d forget where she put them). :o) She worked circles around most of us, and ingenuity was her middle name.  Her touches are seen throughout the WNC Store and she was instrumental in the planning of many aspects of the new WNC community building.  When recently told about the latest new tedious process of validating and valuating each incoming item for IRS purposes, Judy took it upon herself to set up a system to make it easy for our volunteers to track!  In addition to volunteering at most every donation drop off time, Judy helped out on client shopping days, serving as a greeter, handing out bedding and doing whatever else was needed to make someone feel at home.

Her family would like to extend their thanks to the WNC family for their care and support of their mom and sister and would like to invite all to an informal gathering to share stories about Judy with one another at a memorial this Saturday, April 5, from 2-4pm at the Cress Funeral Home, Waunakee.  Please wear Judy’s favorite color – orange.  To honor their mom, they have requested donations be made to the WNC Guardian Fund – (Judy Percy) – WNC 215 S. Century Ave. #316, Waunakee 59597.

‘Miss Judy’ was a wonderful woman and  a huge asset to our organization and will be truly missed by all of us!
