GREENFIELD — One might think a small-town Kentucky farm girl who juggled family, a 27-year banking career and community involvement with a long legacy of accomplishments and service would have to be overbearing to get everything done.
But that would not be an accurate description of Judy Brown, a longtime civic leader who died Monday. She was 80.
“She was an overcomer,” said her son, Scott. “She was not like a bull in a china shop. She was persistent.”
Then, he added: “A quiet persistence.”
Brown had suffered a stroke in mid-September and also had twice fallen at home.
But not long before her health problems worsened, she was helping Herb, her husband of 58 years, build a new house and plan for the future.
