Judy was born in Dalton, Massachusetts on August 7, 1935 to proud parents Kenneth and Marguerite Goodrich. Judy was an honor graduate of Dalton High School with the class of 1953. On September 29th 1956, she was united in marriage to Richard K. Smart in Dalton, MA. In 1957 they moved to Bedford where they happily lived for 45 years and raised their family. Judy worked at Raytheon for many decades as an administrative secretary where she was known for her impeccable short-hand skills and for her exceptional fashion sense.
In her spare time Judy enjoyed crafts, sewing, baking, going for walks, rooting on her grandchildren during sporting events, helping out with her church and simply spending time with her friends, family and children.
