Interment will follow at Westlawn Memorial Park under the direction of Minton-Chatwell Funeral Directors of Fritch. Judy died Sunday in Amarillo.
She had lived in Sanford for the past 20 years and married Roy Seger Jan. 17, 1969, in Borger. Judy loved her family, fishing and quilting.
Two arrests have been made in reference to an assault that occurred last Thursday evening.
On Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, the arrests were made by the Borger Police Department in reference to a recent sexual assault that was reported on Sept. 8, 2011, that occurred in the late evening hours on Union Street.
With the incident and investigation currently ongoing and active, the circumstances leading up to the identity and arrest of the suspects are not presently being provided and released, according to Lt. Anthony Griffin of the BPD.
Early Thursday evening on September 8, 2011, Sanford citizens got the opportunity to voice their opinion to Bobby Eubanks, Jr., Manager of Post Office Operations out of Fort Worth at Sanford Community Hall.
This meeting gave the chance to discuss any alternatives to closing the post office, which has been proposed.
A review of business activities of the Post Office at this site revealed that the office workload has declined.
This reduced workload suggests the maintenance of an independent Post Office here may no longer be warranted.
