Judi Sunday died on Saturday, January 5, 2013, peacefully at her home. She was 71.
Judi was an accomplished artist who enjoyed painting naturalistic landscapes of her beloved Martha's Vineyard. She lived on the Island full- or part-time for more than 50 years. As permanent a fixture of the Island as the ocean itself, Judi once said, "the beauty and mystical nature of the Vineyard as well as the people inspire my artwork. My work conveys the fun and whimsy of the Island and my passion for the ocean." Judi received her formal art training at Northeastern University, earning a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts and Art History. Her work was accepted for display at the M.V. Museum.
Judi was a loving and caring mother to her children, Raychel and Alyssa, her step-children, Kristine and Jeff, and eight grandchildren who she adored, Taylor, Alex, Abby, Sean, Marissa, Elliese, Hannah, and Julia. She lived for spending time with her family and friends. Judi Sunday's legacy is forever secured, not by her brilliant artwork but by the countless people who gave her inspiration by simply having known her and been privileged enough to call her a friend.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, January 10, at Levine Chapel, 470 Harvard St., Brookline.
