Life is pretty good in Downtown Campbell these days, but you don't have to go back very far to run into the times when our small, but smiling district was in a perpetual state of being up and coming. There are only a handful of people left over from those difficult years who know this part of Downtown Campbell's history by heart.
Judy Aagard was one of those people. She contributed time, money, and effort to all sorts of things that might help Downtown Campbell be a more vibrant place to live, work, and be. She did it even when it seemed like it would be all for nothing and she did it even though many of the efforts would do little for her own business.
Even when she became ill, she would be first to express concern over how YOU were doing. That was the kind of person she was and just about everyone who's been in Downtown Campbell a while has had a chance to experience this for themselves. It's hard not to be moved when you encounter a person with Judy's warmth and spirit. Her passing is hard to fathom for the Downtown Campbell family. We've lost a special person. We're gonna miss her.
If you would like to learn more about Judy, the Tiny Tots website posted an endearing tribute.
