On April 2, 2023, Judy C. Fraser, passed away peacefully at her home in Oxnard, CA. She was 83 years old. Judy was the daughter of Ken and Lois Case. She was born in Pasadena, California and graduated from Santa Ana High School in 1957. She is survived by her brother Chuck, her daughter Wendy Herron, her son Ken Herron, her step-son Danny Fraser and her loving husband, Dennis Fraser. Judy met her husband at a mutual friend's wedding on March 23rd, 1991 and was married on August 5th, 1996. They would have celebrated their 27th anniversary in 2023. Judy taught as an adjunct professor at Mount San Antonio Community College, and was an accomplished author of computer programming textbooks that were used in many universities over the years. She retired from teaching, while still remaining as an active university programming author. There’s no describing her zest for life. Judy enjoyed kayaking with her close friends in the local harbor. Her appreciation of books had her joining various book discussion books. She recently took up sourdough bread-making, but it was travel that she was most passionate for. Her love of travel took her to faraway places that included the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, Europe as well as Australia and New Zealand, and many transatlantic voyages. Her preferred travel was on a cruise ship, which she traveled on almost 50 times with her husband, Dennis.
