She leaves behind her mother, Dr. Janice Yates Peters, sister, Susan G. Peters, and brother in law, John James McDonald, aunt, Sallie Yates Box and uncle, Dr. Benton H.

Judith Alleyne Peters was born March 5, 1952, in Hammond, LA. She was the first of three children born to Timothy V. Peters and Janice Yates Peters.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Virginia Tech University, and three Masters degrees: Textile Science from Virginia Tech, Business Administration from Columbia University, and Historical Preservation Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. While there, she, also, taught courses at the University of Pennsylvania.
Her studies and attention to detail prepared her for success in business. She worked for Allied Signal Corp (later became Honeywell), until she joined the family business (Peters Associates International, Inc.) as General Manager. After Peters Associates closed, she set up her own company, Peters Solutions, Inc. She worked in China as an entrepreneur under Peters Solutions as the General Manager of TLT.
Judy Peters was not only an employee of various companies. She, also, was involved in a number of volunteer projects. She was an active member of the Van Harlingen Historical Society, serving for the past four years as its president, and prior to that, serving on its board in lesser positions. She was well-known in Montgomery Township for her willingness to contribute to and work on neighborhood and other projects. She was a major contributor in the production of the film on: "Farming in New Jersey’s Millstone Valley: Past & Present."
A memorial gathering and service will be Saturday, March 10, at the Hillsborough Funeral Home, 796 Route 206, Hillsborough, NJ 08844 from 2-4 pm, where all are welcome to attend, and share their memories of Judy with us.
