Survivors include her daughter Holly (Shawn) Hernandez of Lafayette and their two children, Cade and Reece; her son Christopher (Rayna) Herman of Dana Point, CA and their son Blake; and one sister, Alanna Kay (John) Stadler of York, SC.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, George Randolph Herman;  and her parents, Anne and Albert Skapin.

She was a native of Lorain, Ohio and attended Mt. Sinai School of Nursing. She was a practicing registered nurse for over 40 years in Connecticut & Rhode Island. Upon retirement, she and her husband George moved to Lafayette, LA.

Judith was an active member of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension for many years, and Beta Sigma Phi International.  She loved to be social and often cooked for friends and family. She enjoyed playing bridge, reading, listening to Neil Diamond, debating political views, and making endless lists. She loved to travel with favorite trips to Australia, New Zealand, and Alaska. She was a determined lady and once she set her mind to doing something, it got done. She was a force to be reckoned with.

Pallbearers are Blake Herman, Christopher Herman, Cade Hernandez, Kansas Hernandez, Reece Hernandez, and Shawn Hernandez.

Walters Funeral Home, (337) 706-8941, 2424 North University Avenue in Lafayette, is in charge of funeral arrangements.
