Judi Raymond passed away on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
Judi was a Charter Member of our club. She was Canton Cycle’s Bookkeeper for over 30 years and joined, along with her husband, John (and others), when the club was created. She was the club treasurer for 2 years and has always been an active part of the many club activities, rallies and other gatherings. If you attended one of our Charter Oak Rallies, you were probably greeted with her big smile at the sign in table as she was always one to volunteer to meet and greet our rally goers.
Judi will be missed by all of those who were fortunate to have known her.
