She held a Bachelor of Business Communications, Journalism and Public Relations, from the Queensland University of Technology and lived in the UK for two decades.
Judy was a member of the Institute of Travel and Tourism and the Airline Public Relations Organisation.
A small funeral has been arranged for close family and friends on November 23.
A larger memorial will be held on November 30 at 12 noon at Our Lady of Grace and St Edward Church on Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, W4 4PU, with a reception to follow afterwards.
