Mary Irene Judd, the daughter of the late Hibbard N. and Mary (Donovan) Judd went home to her Lord on Sunday, January 2nd. Mary was born in New London, and lived most of her young life in Norwich. She graduated from Norwich Free Academy and Bryant College. After receiving her degree she went to work at Colt Industries, later returning to Norwich to work for many years at the American Thermos Bottle Co. She returned to Hartford in 1969 and retired from Cigna Insurance in 1984. Mary was a successful businesswoman who enjoyed both her professional contacts as well as her independence which allowed her to travel throughout the United States and abroad. Although Mary was an only child, she was an important and much loved member in the families of her many cousins; participating in the celebrations and milestones in their lives. She was fondly referred to as the family historian. Her presence, her loving interest in even the youngest member, and her quick wit is very much missed by those who loved her dearly.
