In Loving Memory of
For many, many years, CTW was graced with the talents of Judy Wilkinson. She could do it all; painting scrims, making costumes, special makeup and producing!
Judy’s family is from upstate NY. She attended the Emma Willard School for Girls in Troy, NY. She and her husband Ed were avid and expert sailors and sailed actively out of the Columbia Yacht Club in Chicago.
Judy was an artist who painted numerous sets and a number of drops for the Winnetka Woman’s Club (Village Follies) show and CTW. She also was a set designer for numerous shows at the WCH including some for Winnetka Community Theater. Judy was a professional quality makeup artist. She did special makeup for years and instructed lots of moms on how to use and apply makeup. Judy loved to perform, and did so with the Woman’s Club/Follies show. Her two favorite roles were comedy routines, dressed as a “Cats” style cat complete with full face mask, and the “bar fly” in the Follies skit - “Bears in Bars in Billings.” Judy partnered with Gail Johannson for years as a very successful Coldwell Banker sales team pair. Judy and Gail were fast friends. We know they are together again – up there somewhere near God, planning one heck of a production!
Judy was on CTW’s Board of Directors for many years. She was an outstanding member of our board and she will always be remembered.
