Judy Martin Lucas ’57

Margaret “Judy” Martin Lucas ’57 has a 1-year-old grandson. She has lived in Seattle since 2010. The impetus for the move was a medical crisis in the family. In 2007 her daughter, Diana, and son-in-law, Derek Streat, had a daughter, Adelaide Grace. Shortly before the child’s second birthday, she suffered total kidney failure. By autumn 2010, her medical team considered her stable enough for surgery. So, with daughter Amanda as donor, the transplant was accomplished in November of that year. Today, her granddaughter Addie is bright and rambunctious going on 5 years old. Amanda has just run a half-marathon. Judy and her family are extremely grateful to all the classmates (and family, friends and even some total strangers) who supported them with their prayers and kind thoughts. They felt surrounded by love throughout the long road from 2007 to 2010 and today. She gives thanks and much love to all.
