Judith Marie Petro

January 24, 1941 ~ November 5, 2018 (age 77)

Judith Marie Petro of Sandy Hook CT passed away on Monday November 5th, at the age of 77 in her home, surrounded by her family.  Born in Bridgeport she was the daughter of the late Anne and Steven Mudrick. She graduated from Warren Harding High School in Bridgeport and later received her nursing degree from Mattatuck Community College. She was a nurse at Advanced Allergy and Asthma Care in Danbury for many years before becoming ill. She fought a yearlong battle with cancer and sadly succumbed to the disease.  A brave, beautiful adventurous spirit, she loved to travel, explore and hike. Judi was a super strong, protective, straight shooter with a dry sense of humor paired with a sweet, tender, loving soul. She was one of a kind, so incredibly special and unique. Up until her diagnosis she practiced yoga and Pilates regularly, walked/ran 5k’s, zip lined, rock scrambled, ice climbed, traveled and was pretty much up for anything exciting and fun.  But of all the things she loved none compare to the love she had for her wonderful husband Jim of 56 years, and for her girls Amie and Melissa and, of course, for her beautiful grandchildren Liliana, Nathan and Simon. She was our star, our ocean our universe and will be deeply missed.

She leaves behind her loving husband Jim, daughters Amie (husband Mark) and Melissa (husband Julian) and son James.  She also leaves behind her devoted sister Barbara Cannaverde (late husband Tony) and their girls, her brother Richard (wife Marilynn) and their girls, her loving sister-in-law Maureen (husband Ted) and their girls, and sister-in-law Irene (late husband George) and their children and many other wonderful relatives, friends and loved ones. 

Calling hours will be from 3-7 pm on Thursday November 8, 2018 with a Funeral service at 4:30 at Munson–Lovetere Funeral Home, 235 Main Street North Southbury, CT with a celebration of her life immediately afterwards at her home in Sandy Hook CT.  All are welcome.
