Judith is not only one of the namesakes of The Judith & Norman Alix Foundation, she also serves as its Treasurer. She oversees all operating expenses and takes an active role in the decision process regarding which projects the Foundation will fund.
From 1977-2010 Judith worked at the construction company that she and her husband Norman owned, Steeplejack Services. Prior to that position, from 1963-1975, she worked as an RN mainly in Petrolia, Newmarket and Sarnia.
Judith has a grade 12 diploma from Petrolia District High School and graduated from St. Thomas-Elgin Hospital, where she became registered in 1963.
She and husband Norman, who passed away on June 8, 2014, raised three children, Mike, Joe and Tara.
Judith sees the Foundation’s role as “planting seeds” that the community, working together, can then use to grow a garden that thrives and changes lives.
“It gives me great pride to see what has been accomplished with the donations we’ve made to date,” Judith said. “By paying it forward, we can help build a strong community for the betterment and enjoyment of all.”
Judith is realistic in her expectations for the Foundation. “We look for the greatest needs, the projects on which we can do the most good. We don’t have the resources to solve every problem or fill every need. But we can make a difference by shining a light on important causes and setting an example for others to get involved in their community.”
