Amy Judy was an unstoppable and unapologetic advocate for individuals with disabilities, a fiercely proud sister, daughter, and auntie, and a steadfast and true friend.  Her wisdom, ethics, honesty, and compassion made her unlike anyone who has graced this earth.  Not only has she deeply touched the lives of everyone that knew her personally but her soulfelt dedication to advocating for the equality, safety, and respect for those with disabilities and  justice for ALL people was unmatched. 
To honor Amy we are raising money to purchase a memorial bench through the Dane County Parks Service to be placed at the Indian Lake County Park 
where she loved to bring her doggy "kids" Micah and Scout to explore and rest.
Here is what would be included in the cost:

One bench with approved 2” x 6” Memorial Plaque
Iron Bench Metal Frame, Wood Seat and Back (Iron Forge, Inc.) Overall Dimensions: 34” High x 22” Deep and 6’ Long Stationary, 4” Square Single Pedestal Mount
3”x4” Laminated salvaged Redwood materials
Frame Black, Dry Powder Finish
212 Lbs Heavy Duty
Installed Flagstone Foot Rest
10 Year – Full Maintenance and Repair
Go Fund Me Fees

Please consider donating to honor Amy's life that ended too soon and to encourage others to rest and enjoy the beauty of the hidden gem, Indian Lake County Park. 

Shannel Trudeau-Yancey will complete the application for the bench with Dane County Parks Donation Request and be in charge of the final expenses. Estimate is $2500 plus GoFund Me $125+. Any additional funds will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and Dane County Humane Society's Wild Life Center in memory of Amy.

Thank you again for all of your generous contributions to the memorial bench for amy judy! They're in the process of hiring a new person to build it and it will hopefully be placed by may. For those who continued to donate after we met our goal, the money will be split between Three of amy's favorite non-profits. I'll be sending those checks today. It still seems unreal that she has passed but what a blessing that she touched all of our lives and so many others the way she did. She was remarkable. ☀️

Wonderful donors, within two days 37 people donated to the cause of having a memorial bench placed at Indian Lake County Park in honor of dear amy judy. While she is irreplaceable, hoping that you all and many many others will have an opportunity to visit the Park and the rest on that bench and be held up by it, in the way that Amy Judy always cared for others. I will be handling the check receipt from go fund me and will complete the application to the Dane county parks division. I will make sure that they get the paperwork and check in a timely manner so that we can hopefully have a bench in place by the spring. Thank you again for your generosity and kindness. Amy was unlike anyone and hopefully wherever she is she is in the sun and playing in the woods with Doggy friends. Please contact me directly if you have any questions about your donation. With an abundance of gratitude, Shannel

Amy was by far one of the best people I have ever known. She was taken from this world too soon but she did great things while she was here! A great example to follow!
