Born here. Went to school here. Lots of jobs, from babysitting to local shop jobs here. Her love of dance and working and being a student in a local dance studio was here. She was a student, then an intern, then a professional Funeral Director at Gibbons Family Funeral Home, in the neighborhood. She got married to her husband Mike, of the CPD in the neighborhood. And now, Judy and Mike are the brand new parents of twin boys. So, for Judy, the circle of life is happening in real time in her neighborhood in Chicago, St. Pascal’s parish. Any real Chicagoan knows what parish they reside in; Catholic or any other faith. It’s a Chicago thing.
Another Chicago thing is the Gibbons Family Funeral Home. 3 generations of Gibbons have grown up and lived alongside the good folks and first responders who have called this area home for those same 3 generations. Family is important to the Gibbon’s Family. Michael Gibbons explains it simply, “Judy is family. She’s grown up here. She was a student and apprentice here. She feels and we feel, she belongs here with her family’s deep roots in this community. Make no mistake, she is absolutely part of our family.”
Judy is a St. Pascal’s graduate and parishioner, husband Mike an alumni of St. Patrick’s. Judy spent years playing basketball in the gyms of Our Lady of Victory, St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Francis Borgia, St. Bartholomew and Immaculate Conception in Edison Park, to name a few. “Gaining the trust and confidence of the people in the neighborhoods of the northwest side of Chicago and serving them now is a remarkable privilege”, says Judy, She has always wanted to help the people she grew up with. It’s a special thing to be able to help people in their time of greatest need.
A lot has happened since we did this video of our bright eyed, friendly and always smiling Judy, who was studying for her license, engaged to a handsome neighborhood fellow. Now, she’s Married, Licensed and a new mother of twin boys. And it all happened here, in this very special neighborhood.
