Virginia "Ginny" Gavek
I met Judy at Mount Nittany Medical Center aka Centre Community Hospital in the early 90's. She was the best darn telephone operator there. She knew all the nooks and crannies of that place. I was a young niave kid learning the ropes. Judy had such a tough exterior and you really had to prove your knowledge and willingness to learn and show you were serious and committed to the job. I did that and was determined to crack her. I am grateful to have been trained by the best and to have gotten to know her better than a lot of folks in the hospital as fellow co-workers. It was an added bonus to see her husband pick her up everyday too.
Judy was a big part in my development of a future long standing healthcare career.
I thank her for taking the time to share her great knowledge of the logistics of the hospital especially during a disaster or emergency as well as I thank her for her humor and sharing family stories.
I am sorry for your families loss of Judy. She was a very strong lady, a pillar.
God bless you all,
