3 Condolences for “Judith A. Dupler”

    I am so sorry to hear of Judy’s passing. I was a customer and student of hers when she operated Keepsakes in Carmel. I spent many happy hours there. Just yesterday someone asked me what the first item I knit was and it was a small baby blanket at Judy’s shop. I had heard that she had been ill, but did not have specifics.
    Please accept my condolences and one thing that I do know is that Judy felt so blessed to have her grandchildren! She always spoke so lovingly of them and I could see the few time I met them in the shop how much she loved them and them her.
    You are all in my thoughts today.

    To Judith Nieman’s children:

    Today I was sad when I read the Indianapolis Star obituary and found your mother’s
    name. She was one of the top students when I taught at Lincoln School in Frankfort
    from 1951 until 1954. How well I remember what a sweet little girl she was at ten
    years of age! I’ve wondered what had happened to her through the years. I knew she
    lived in California at one time but was unaware she taught English or had done so
    many interesting things in her lifetime.
    My best to you,
    Anndora Laflin

    I went to Lincoln School with Judy, and remember when she moved to Frankfort and became a student at Lincoln. I always admired her and her true intellect. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing, although someone had told me some time ago that she was in ill health. Please accept my sincere condolences and what ever you do, always remember the good times, and keep smiles in your heart when you remember her. May she rest in peace.

    Warmest regards,
    Terrell Huffer Camhi
