PORT CLYDE – Judith A. ‘Judy’ Carty, 77, died peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, Thursday, August 1, 2019 at her home.
Born in Medford, MA May 17, 1942, she was the daughter of Wm. Donald, Sr. and Alice Blundell Page. Growing up in Medford, she attended high school there.
Judy began her working career at Steins Bakery. She had a love of baking and always had a sweet tooth. While working here she met the love of her life, Richard Carty. The two were married on December 3, 1960 at St. John’s Methodist Church in Medford. The couple resided there for two years before moving to Woburn, eventually settling in Tewksbury. While living there, Judy was a busy mother of three boys and was also employed at the local schools in the cafeteria.
Summering in Maine since she was a child, Judy and Richard moved here permanently in 1986 where they made their home in Port Clyde.
