Judith Ann Stonehill of Honeoye Falls, NY at age 76.  Judith was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana to the late Cyrus and Evelyn (Clifton) Stonehill on September 23, 1941.   She was also very close to her step-mother, Erma (Welch) Stonehill.

Judy attended the University of Massachusetts, earning her bachelor's degree at the Dartmouth, campus.  She continued her studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia, graduating with a master's degree in library science.  After graduation, Judy joined the library at the Xerox Webster Laboratories and then moved to technology support for  other Webster Laboratory units until her retirement.

Judy contributed to many fields.  She was an enthusiastic radio amateur for many years, aiding in the development of the Monroe County Amateur Radio Emergency Service.  She was the music librarian for her church's choir, and a volunteer aide at several animal shelters.  She did research on the recognition of whale voices, involving several years positioning hydrophones in the open sea in a rubber boat.  She loved woodwork, working in her shop in the short intervals between flight training, horse riding and travel.

Judy is survived by her brother and sister-in-law David and Jean Stonehill and her two nieces, Linda and Heidi Stonehill all of whom reside in New Hampshire.

The family would like to thank everyone of Comfort Keepers in Pittsford who cared for her so faithfully in so many ways during the last few years.

Judy will have a private interment at White Haven Memorial Park where her parents are interred.  " A celebration of Judy's Life will be on Saturday May 19, 2018 at 11:00 AM, in the chapel of the Third Presbyterian Church, 4 Meigs Street,  Rochester, NY  14607.  All are welcome to join in remembering her.  A reception will be held in the church after the memorial"
