Judith (Lyons) Herter Green age 76 of North Haledon died peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, September 24, 2021. Born in Coronado, CA while her father was detailed there with the United States Navy, her family then came back to Ridgewood where Judy was raised.

She attended the Ridgewood school system and graduated from the high school in 1963. Judy worked alongside her dad at the Bill Lyons Shoe Stores in both Ridgewood and Wyckoff, where she later became owner and operated the stores until 1985. The family then made the move to Jupiter, FL, where she lived until 2004.

Judy then came back to North Jersey where she settled in North Haledon with Joseph Shannon. She was a lover of Disney World and vacationed there often. Judy and Joe also loved traveling the world taking many cruises and visiting many countries. Some of the many words that would describe her are: fun, gracious, positive, loving, giving, happy, supportive and the list goes on. Judy would also not be afraid to correct your grammar, she was better known as the grammar guru. In her later years she fought the good fight, whether it be MS or cancer, always with a smile on her face.

Judy’s family invites you to attend a service of remembrance on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM at the Vander Plaat Funeral Home, 257 Godwin Avenue, Wyckoff. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Judy’s name may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis National Society, 718 Teaneck Road, Teaneck, NJ 07666.
