The Friends lost a very dear friend this year. Judy Park passed away on Thursday, November 24, 2016 surrounded by her family. Judy was an active member and Board member of the Friends of the Romeo District Library since its inception. She contributed to our community in so many ways, being an active member of St. John Lutheran Church in Romeo and the Romeo & Juliet Garden Club, in addition to the Friends of the Library. She enjoyed gardening, ceramics, crocheting, reading and playing Mahjong with her friends. The Friends miss Judy very much and send our love and condolences to Judy’s husband, James, her three children and six grandchildren. (posted 12/24/2016)
