Soon after their marriage, Judy and Larry moved to Pennsylvania, where Larry was born and where his family lived. There Judy and Larry had their first born child, Susan. However, before 1962, they left Pennsylvania, and returned to California, setteling in Simi Valley in Ventura County. There, they had their second child, Anthony.

On the 9 December 1972, Judy died suddenly from a massive coronary obstruction. Her funeral was conducted by Reardon Simi Valley Mortuary in Simi Valley; and she was laid to rest at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village.
