JUDITH LYNNE SYC, 78, passed away at home surrounded by loving family on Thursday, July 25, 2019. Judy was born on July 24, 1941 in Battle Creek, MI, the daughter of Thomas and Sylvia Nash. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Siena Heights College, Adrian, MI. On June 13, 1964, Judy married the love of her life, Dr. Frank Syc, DDS.
