I am sorry to inform you that my wife Judith Freed passed away this morning, January 19th. 2010. She passed after a long battle with mutiple illnesses. Some of you may remember her from the strike in the seventies, feeling that the wives had as much at stake as the workers she organized them & with their children they walked the picket line, much to the dismay of many brothers & the union officials & pressed 1212 & CBS, namely Arthur Taylor, for talks leading to a settlement. For twenty three years or so she had her "Oaken Bucket" & "Judith Antiques" shops in Nyack & again in Atlantic City. Born in Brooklyn, a graduate of PS 167 & Erasmus High School, Judy an avid reader, had fond memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers & Coney Island. After over fifty years of marriage she will be missed.
