Judy Stone

Judy Stone was a 60 year resident of Fairfield County, raising her 3 boys in Stamford and New Canaan, and ultimately spending many years in Fairfield. She was the daughter of parents who had been raised as orphans, and in fact spent her early years in an apartment in an orphanage in Brooklyn, which her father ran. In addition to a love of sports…especially ice skating and tennis…she was an avid reader and a passionate believer in the power of education to lift minds, spirits, and circumstances. She believed strongly in the mission of Norwalk/Stamford Grassroots and was thrilled that her grandchildren made a contribution in her name.
