Very sad news indeed.
I remember lots of email conversation with her, on gum printing or general stuffs in life. I had always enjoyed her writing and never it mean spirited but a style of writing and humor instead. She was very supporting when I was working on the LC-1 developer for lith film although she herself had retired and didn't do much gum printing anymore at that time.
She will be dearly missed.

Dear Alt List,
I just found out via FB that Judy Seigel has died.
The funeral will be Sunday May 14, 10 AM Riverside chapel, 76th Street and Amsterdam if you are in Manhattan.
It saddens me when our “greats” from the alt list pass on, and lately this seems to have happened often. Probably because I’ve been on the alt list for almost 20 years now.
I have benefitted from so much knowledge, even through the controversies. It has been a “spicey” group off and on through the years, but that always has been an impetus for me to pursue excellence.
I remember fondly meeting up with her in NYC, probably around 2000, and having a wonderful dinner with her near her Greenwich Village residence.
I credit Judy as one of those who put gum on the map and kept the conversation going.
Her Post Factory Journal series has been a great resource, as I can see since we are still discussing it on this list. I have two sets, one for me, one for my students, of which I cannot part. They’re on the “keeper” shelf along with my gum monographs from the late 1800s. There are so many list members represented in those pages. It reads like an alt list diary.
How amazing she was married 65 years, through such changing social times!
