Judy was an excellent hairdresser and cosmetologist. She was the manager of the L.S. Ayers Beauty shop in Indianapolis. In 2000, she worked at Mirror Image Styling Salon until her retirement in 2017. She found great joy in her trade and appreciated each of her clients. Judy considered the stylists at Mirror Image as her second family. They held a special place in her heart.
