Nov 11, 1993
Judith Peterson Midelfort died Nov. 11, 1993, of brain cancer. Her husband, Sven, wrote in a family newsletter that shortly before Judy died, they took a trip to Boston and Cape Cod where Judy “again experienced her beloved ocean. On a rough sea, Judy stood stalwart and smiling at the rail of a whale-watching ship while many of the rest of us were seasick. That image remains to me as a symbol of her zest and courage.” Judy was a medical social worker. She wrote poetry and studied and performed dance. Many of Judy’s Peace Corps friends and colleagues saw her at the 25th anniversary reunion.
