Newport News High School Class of 1962

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have even more sad news to report today.     Judy Getsug Margulies, Class of 1962, and sister of Steve Getsug, passed away in Virginia Beach on Friday, October 07, 2011.  It would be a stretch to say that I really knew Judy, but I remember her well as a girl with a dazzling smile and sparkling eyes who always seemed to light the space surrounding her.  May her memory be for a blessing always.

Shelly and Michael,
I never met you, and I did not know your mother as a Mom, but I did know her at Newport News High School, and she was always a pleasure to be around. I am sure that she was a wonderful mother. Savor your memories.

To Shelley, Michael and Stephen,

I was so fortunate to have known your precious mom (and sister) for many years. She was one of the most unique individuals I've ever known and so loving toward me. And her will to live was strong and beautiful. The countless belly laughs we shared will remain a comfort to me and our circle of friends always.

May time soften the sharp edges of your grief and you find peace and healing as you cherish her legacy and remember her amazing spirit. All the best to your families as well.

Love and hugs,

October 12, 2011
