Judith F. “Judy” Mayer, of Chambersburg, passed away on Friday, July 29, 2022 at age 80. She was born in Wyandotte, MI on April 12, 1942 to Norma and Melvin Isabell.
After graduating from Flat Rock High School, Judy earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the Michigan State University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Shippensburg University.
