In Memory

Judy Nieman (Bergdahl)

Judy succumbed August 24, 2012 after a 53-month battle with brain cancer. She had retired as a psychologist in many settings, in clinics and hospitals and in private practice in Athens and Marietta, Ohio. She was able to attend the 50th reunion and was excited to see so many old friends and classmates there.

Four of us visited Judy and David in Columbus after the reunion and had a special lunch with them.  Since then Barb Steiner Fuller has been keeping in touch.  Judy put her whole heart in attending the reunion and added so much with her smiles and stories.  Each classmate who passes leaves us with memories and always the wish that we could have had them with us just a little bit longer.  Judy said to me during that day, "I will not let anyone or anything ruin each of my wonderful days."  I will keep that thought with me for years to come...
