In Memory Of Our Poets

Judith "Judy" London (Evans) (1947-2008) - Class Of 1965

EVANS, Judith London passed away Friday, Septem­ber 12, after a year-long bat­tle with cancer.  She was 61 years old.  Her funeral was held in Durham, NC, where her husband, Eli, grew up.  Ju­dith was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama.  She is preceded in death by her mother, Sarah Miller London, and her father, Dr. Irving D. London.  In addition to her husband, Eli Evans, and her son, Josh, she is survived by brothers Jack R. London of Montgomery, AL and Mark E. London of Bethesda, MD.  Judith graduated from Sidney Lanier High School in 1965 and Emory University in 1969.  She went on to a distin­guished 36 year career at TIAA-CREF, the financial serv­ices institution that services thousands of universities and colleges across America.  She was a ground breaker for women's advancement in the work place.  Judith was the first woman with institutional account responsibilities to travel for the company.  In 1988, she became the first woman to lead a TIAA-CREF local office when she opened the New York City Re­gional Office.  She was re­sponsible for such institutions as Yale University, Columbia University, NY University and Memorial Sloan Kettering. In the most recent chapter of her career she served as Di­rector of corporate meetings and special events. Judith was deeply committed to her alma mater, Emory Uni­versity and served a three year term on the Dean's Council.  In 2006 she was one of two alumni to receive the Emory University Distinguished Alumni Award. J udith will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her. Contributions should be sent to the Sarah and Irving Lon­don Torah Preservation Fund at Agudath Israel Etz Ahayem Synagogue, the Joy to Life Foundation in Montgomery, AL or to the Tam Center for Jewish studies at Emory Uni­versity in Atlanta, GA.
