SIGAL: Judy Ann Sigal passed away peacefully after a heroic fight with cancer on Thursday July 30, 2015. Born June 28, 1960, she is the youngest daughter of Norma and the late Erv Sigal, and the niece of Natalie Cuban. Mourning her loss are her siblings Shellie, Michael and Randi; and her nieces and nephews, Jeff, Reid and Terri, Brian and Katie, and Molly. She will be dearly missed by multiple close friends and colleagues. A recurring theme in Judy's life was spending time with her family, as well as sharing special times with her closest friends and their children. Judy was a proud graduate of Penn State University and loved the Creamery. She received her master’s as a reading specialist at Duquesne University. Judy began her career at Sylvan Learning Centers. She taught throughout the years at Crescent, Murry, Horace Mann, Belmar, Phillip Murry, and finally Phillips. She had many close relationships and her students who knew how much she cared. Her love for her Nittany Lions was only surpassed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. A major highlight of her life was attending the Steelers Super Bowl victory in Detroit. Judy spent much of her free time volunteering for multiple organizations. She was excited to be honored as "Volunteer of the Year for CCFA." Her sense of humor never waned. Her smiling face and good nature will be remembered by all. Services were held at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc. Interment Homewood Cemetery.

Even without a "detailed record", this book would be amiss if it doesn't mention the fact that Lee never freed any of his slaves - that his wife abandoned them at Arlington Plantation when the Union army came to take possession of the place.Or that Lee personally supervised the whipping of men and women who had escaped and been re-captured, telling the flogger to "lay in on well". Or the fact that his army in its 1863 invasion of Pennsylvania, captured a number of African Americans living free in the Gettysburg - York area and force marched them to the slave markets of Richmond.
