Judy Foxluger - Naccarella
Fairport, NY


I can’t believe it’s been 50 years! How does one put 50 years in a paragraph or two? I’ll try -- When I left Penfield, I headed to Alfred State Tech. Left after one year and worked at Strong Hospital in psychiatric research. Met Jim Naccarella and we were married in 1963. Jim was a middle school English teacher in Spencerport where we lived for 12 years. We have to sons, Jim and Randy (also alums of PHS). I worked at Xerox and then from home for General Code Publishers when the boys were little. We moved back to Penfield in 1978 and I re-entered the work force. I tried bank telling and hated it so went back to my comfort level of being an administrative assistant. Worked at Eastman School of Music briefly and then in the education department at Strong Museum for 18 years and loved every minute of it. From there I went to WXXI and then Harris Interactive (Gordon Black). I finally landed at Nazareth Schools as executive assistant to the president where I am currently employed and have been for the past 10 years.

Jim retired in 1991, and sadly was diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease 6 months later. He died on Thanksgiving Day in 1996. It has become a bittersweet holiday. I have since down-sized and now live in Fairport with my 2 Shih Tzu’s. I have 3 granddaughters, Vanessa, Antonia, and Maria, all sisters, who I thoroughly enjoy. They are beautiful, smart, and full of life. We all travel together at least once a year – one of my true pleasures, travelling. I’m looking forward to our reunion in August. (Sorry, I can’t find a picture of just me – this one was at the State Swim Competition in Long Island where Toni, granddaughter on right, was competing; Maria is on my left.)

Remember, we are just passing through, treasure every minute of it.
