It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of a very special alumna of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Judy Mellor. Julia “Judy” Mellor passed away on September 11, 2014, in Tucson, at the age of 70.
Judy graduated from the University of Arizona in 1965 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics Education. For over 45 years, she served the students, faculty and programs of CALS. She actively recruited students to the College and encouraged more and younger alumni to support CALS and the University. Her involvement in the Annual Homecoming “Dean’s Almost World Famous Burrito Breakfast and Alumni Auction” was integral to its success year after year.
Judy was known throughout the College for her kind heart, volunteerism, and pride in her University.
