Judy was born September 13, 1940 at Trinity Lutheran Hospital and grew up at 4514 Francis Street. After graduating from St. Agnes grade school and high school she entered the college of Mount St. Scholastica and then the Ursuline Convent in Paola, Kansas. Her education degree came from Marillac College in St. Louis. Judy served God, several communities and hundreds of students as an Ursuline Sister for 10 years. Judy left her vocation in 1968 to embark on a new life and career as a layperson. While working as a governess and teacher, Judy met Kevin Glynn. They were married in 1970 at St. Agnes. Three children followed: David (1972), Sarah (1979) and Philip (1980). Judy blended the careers of full-time mother and early education and primary teacher throughout her life. In addition to being a mother and educator, Judy was a friend, confidant, counselor and mentor to more than one generation of family and friends. Visitation Catholic Church was her spiritual home. The lifelong vocation she undertook as a nun continued as a lay leader in Visitation's many ministries.
Judy's stories, her advice and her songs will live on through the people she supported and inspired throughout her life. In death as in life, Judy was an example of sacrifice and grace. A visitation will be held on November 28th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Visitation Church, 5141 Main Street. We will celebrate her life with a Mass of Christian Burial at the church on November 29th at noon. Entombment will immediately follow at Resurrection Cemetery in Lenexa, Kansas. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Visitation Church, Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care and the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph.
