She was born in Jerseyville, Illinois on September 7, 1964, the seventh of eight children born to John Francis "Jack" and Barbara (Miller) Wock.

Judy grew up on the family farm in a close-knit, faith-based family, learning early on the values of hard work, loyalty, and honesty.  She graduated in 1982 from Jersey Community High School in Jerseyville and was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Jerseyville.

For many years, Judy has been involved in athletics whether participating or coaching, serving as the head volleyball coach at St. Francis/Holy Ghost Catholic School in Jerseyville, and was slated to become the Athletic Director of the school's athletic department.   

Judy was extremely family-oriented and served in many capacities in her family from loving daughter, sister, wife, mom, grandma, and aunt.  It was important to Judy, and she made certain that the family remained intact and all traditions remained in place.
