Judy was the daughter of Francis and Lillian Davitt and was born in Morristown, raised in Morris Township, married Bill Oakley, and lived in Hanover Township. She attended Morris Township Schools and graduated from Madison High in 1961.

Judy was a retired member of the Whippanong Garden Club (had a green thumb), and enjoyed attending the Hanover Township Senior Fitness Club twice a week. She loved playing tennis and was captain of her weekly Wednesday doubles team at Twin Oaks Tennis Center. These ladies also took weekly bridge lessons at Morristown High School together.

Judy and her family loved vacationing at LBI, Anna Maria Island, and Destin, FL. She was a member of Ginty Pool for 50 years.

Judy was married to her husband, Bill, in 1965, and they had over 58 happy years together. Judy is survived by her husband and daughter, Karen Oakley of Morristown, and her brother, Richard of Destin, FL.
