Judy excelled in most things she turned her mind and hand to during various careers over her life time. To name a few, in her first career, while working at Dominion Stores as a teenager and young adult, she was awarded the “I make a difference – a definite difference” award which included a silver dollar. During her second career as an Educational Assistant, Judy was awarded with “Educational Assistant of the Year” the first year it was offered. In her third career, at Upper Canada Village while working in the education department, she and department colleagues were awarded with the “Team Spirit” award by the Ontario Government. During Canada’s 150th anniversary, the office of MP Guy Lauzon created and launched calls for SD&G Canada Service medal- a commemorative medal in recognition of residents in Stormont–Dundas–South Glengarry who have made outstanding contributions to their community; Judy was a proud recipient. Judy’s most profound accomplishment was being invited by MP Pierre Poilievre to emcee the ceremony at Parliament Hill for the presentation of the Canadian Flag that flew over the Peace Tower, 50 years after British Home Child descendant, Joan O’Malley sewed the three prototypes that resulted in our beautiful Maple Leaf Flag. Judy was invited to bring words about the little-known history of over 100 000 British Home Children who were sent to Canada between 1869 – 1948 in hopes for a better opportunity at life and future, but first had to work off an indenture or contract.
