Well-known for Her Willingness to Serve
on Neighborhood Projects
March 5, 1952 - February 26, 2018
Judith Alleyne Peters of Belle Mead died suddenly at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center on Monday, February 26 from complications associated with liver cancer. She was 65.
Judy was born March 5, 1952, in Hammond, LA. She was the first of three children born to Timothy V. Peters and Janice Yates Peters.
She earned a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech University, and three master’s degrees: Textile Science from Virginia Tech, Business Administration from Columbia University, and Historical Preservation Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, where she also taught courses.
Her studies and attention to detail prepared her for success in business. She worked for Allied Signal Corp (Honeywell) then joined the family business, Peters Associates International, as general manager. Judy later set up her own company, Peters Solutions, and worked in China as an entrepreneur under Peters Solutions as the general manager of TLT.
Judy also was involved in a number of volunteer projects. She was a member of the Van Harlingen Historical Society, serving for the past four years as its president. She was well-known in Montgomery Township for her willingness to contribute to and work on neighborhood and other projects.
Her body will be cremated and her eyes and other usable organs will be donated to those in need.
Judy leaves behind: her mother, Janice Yates Peters; sister, Susan G. Peters; brother-in-law, John James McDonald; aunt, Sallie Yates Box; uncle, Benton H. Box; and her family of many cousins and “borrowed sisters, brothers, and cousins.” She was preceded by her brother, Robin D. Peters; and father, Timothy V. Peters.
