Judy Lynn (Wiens) Read, 60, of Mechanicsburg, passed away at home on Thursday, December 24, 2020. She was born December 2, 1960 in Altus, OK to Estella Mae (Stiggins) Wiens and the late Eldon Leroy Wiens.

I still can't believe this news of Judy's passing.... She was so full of life. I can still hear her laugh because she laughed all the time. One of her greatest gifts to the world was not only her laugh and her family, but her amazing faith in God. She lifted so many people up with her constant faith. A faith that you don't see often in this world. I will miss our walks (even though infrequent) we would just pick up like we talked every day. Judy made everyone feel like she was your best friend. I will miss you friend. Love to Steve and the boys. Our family enjoyed so many wonderful events together. Pat Kacyon and boys.

Judy & I reffed many games together, especially when she lived in the Phila area. She was a great official, conscientious, & on top of her game. She always spoke lovingly of her family. She was such a sweet, caring person. My prayers are with all of you - that your memories of her will be with you always & help you get through this hard time. I can picture that huge smile of hers shining down on you.

Steve. I just found out this morning and wanted to let you know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God provide comfort to you and your family during this time of sorrow and take comfort in knowing she is now in house of the Lord.

Steve and family: I am so sorry for your loss and my heart is aching for you all. While I never met Judy, I felt like I knew her well from the so many stories and descriptions Steve shared that told the story of a wonderful person, kind yet strong, ever faithful and the kind of life partner one is truly blessed to have. I would talk to Steve from time to time on speaker phone and I could hear Judy in the background with clever remarks, half doting over Steve and yet half jabbing at him here and there and Steve would quickly say – “ok, it’s time for us to walk to dog – gotta go”, and I hung up thinking what a nice life they have, enjoying simple things together. A quiet household with love and friendship. I know there will be difficult times ahead, but you are well loved and have a strong network of support. You are all in my thoughts,
