Judy moved to Staten Island with her parents and brother, Neal when she was 10 years old. She graduated from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, NY in 1962. After high school, she attended trade school in Staten Island, NY to learn how to operate a keypunch machine. She received a certificate of achievement for completion of the program.
Judy worked for a local bank as a keypunch operator for several years until she married Albert (Al) Richard Gulizia in 1967 in Staten Island, NY. The couple moved to Brick, New Jersey shortly after their marriage and raised two children. They were happily married for 50 years. Judy enjoyed helping others and volunteered at a local nursing home for many years. She loved making homemade crafts and had an amazing talent for making something beautiful out of the most modest supplies. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was often quoting funny lines from movies in her daily conversations. Judy and Al moved to St. Leonard, MD when Al retired in 2000 to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
