Judy was born in Philadelphia on May 12, 1954. She lived in Philadelphia most of her life, moving to Coatesville in 2012 to live with her brother and his family. She passed away at home on June 18, 2020.
Judy was the daughter of the late Albert J. McIlhenny and Dorothy Cameron. She is survived by her sons: John Linder Jr. (Dawn) and David Conroy; grandchildren: Paige, John and Malachi; brother Albert McIlhenny (Marilyn) and niece Grace.
She worked for many years as a dispatcher for Philadelphia taxi companies prior to retiring due to loss of vision.
She was a very generous person, always ready to help a friend down on their luck. She often offered them a place to stay until they got back on their feet. She also loved animals, taking in stray cats and dogs whose owners could not care for them. She was an advocate for autism awareness as well.
More recently, she was active in blind support groups in the Coatesville area. She was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Compass, then Messiah Anglican Church in Germantown.
Judy will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. Her funeral service will be July 1, 2020, 1:00 pm at Messiah Anglican Church, 198 E Herman St, Philadelphia, PA.
