Judith Trautman


Throughout her life Judy continued to pursue knowledge. As a youngster she learned to play several instruments and also instructed others how to play. Her organ teacher was Larry Ferrari and because of his association with the Wanamaker Department Store Judy got to play their famous organ.
She was always a member of a United Methodist Church wherever she lived. Judy didn’t just warm the pew. She excelled as a Sunday School teacher quoting appropriate Bible verses from memory.
After high school Judy attended Philadelphia Bible College and later Gloucester County College to obtain licenses to be a Building Inspector and Fire Inspector. She was employed as a Construction Official in both Sea Isle City and Logan Twp. Her last position was with Penns Grove as a Court Clerk. A double knee replacement forced her into retirement but since she couldn’t sit still Judy volunteered as a Financial Secretary at Bethesda United Methodist Church in Swedesboro.
The Methodist Church played a big part in Judy’s life. It was only fitting that she would meet her husband, Bernard “Butch” in the church they both attended as children in South Philadelphia. They were blessed with four children: Sean Canty, Dana Darling, Nichole Trautman and Brent-Jason Trautman, 10 grand children and 2 great grandchildren . She is also survived by a brother, Frank Lampe.
Come celebrate 72 adventuresome years, (though she only admitted to be 16), Saturday, September 19 at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro with calling there from 11a.m. and a service at Noon.
Donations to Salem County Center for Autism ,193 N. Broadway, Pennsville 08070 Attn: Stephanie Snyder-Phipps will be appreciated.

    I will miss you so much. Our paths crossed so many times, and now, never to cross again. Your parents taking me to my military enlistment. Your brother Frank getting me the job with Gulf Oil. Your Mom in Sea Isle. Seeing you in Sea Isle. Your kids working for me in Sea Isle. Just when I thought we reconnecting, you are gone, but not forgotten. Rest in Peace.
