She fell in love with Maui and never looked back. Our BHS’68 classmate, Judie Anderson, departed this world on March 22, after a short bout with an aggressive cancer. According to her nephew, Jeffrey Szilagyi (who coincidentally is the son of Tonia Szilagyi Mapston‘s cousin), Judie fell in love with Maui nearly 40 years ago. She never had kids of her own, but was kind and caring, especially to “furry little critters and her big array of nieces, nephews and their children.”
Judie moved back to the mainland some 12+ years ago for a couple years, then moved back after her mom passed in 2006.
We last heard from Judie at the time of our 40th reunion when she wrote Jim Ranshaw:
I regret to say that I will not be able to attend this reunion, and will miss seeing everyone and the good times and memories. I live on Maui and it is a long way to go, especially as I will be in So. Calif around the end of October, so just cannot afford two trips so close together.
Thanks for the invitation and all the good work that you and the reunion committee do!
