She was born to William Melville Wood and June Katherine (Edmison) Wood in Toronto. In the 1950’s she attended private schools in London England and Denmark before returning to Victoria for high school. It was there that she met her lifelong friend Dana Bourne. She later attended Brown University for a PhD in Linguistics.

    Judy brought joy and a great smile everywhere she went. A stranger wouldn’t be a stranger for long, always a loyal friend. I feel very lucky to have enjoyed time with her. Remembering will be easy. She will be missed.
