On Sunday, August 9, 2020, our dearest Judy A. Tamagno, 73, of Muncy finally walked into the arms of her Creator. She has been freed from her earthly bonds of pain and suffering that she so courageously endured during her five-year battle with ALS. Her strength and caring for others along this road were nothing short of miracles for all who knew and loved her.
Judy was a self-taught artist who created wonderful works in many mediums, and she always thanked God for her talents by signing each piece with the phrase ‘Praise the Lord’. She was unwavering in her faith for many decades since being saved from addiction and spoke to anyone who would listen to her about her faith in Jesus. She unabashedly witnessed to many people over the years and inspired countless others with her love and her unending sense of humor. She was committed to the pro-life cause and spoke boldly for the protection of the unborn.
The love for her husband Richard came into even greater bloom in the midst of her illness - and they were blessed to have celebrated 50 years of marriage in May. She was a devoted wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
Born December 9, 1946 in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late George and Doris (Wallace) Hawkins. On May 16, 1970 she married Richard J. Tamagno, who survives.
Judy was a 1964 graduate of Cheltenham High School. She attended the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, PA.
She was a member of the Church of the Resurrection, Muncy, PA.
