In Memoriam: Judy Harrow (1945-2014)

Judy Harrow (1945-2014) Wiccan Priestess, Author, Teacher, Friend

The Covenant of the Goddess takes a quiet moment to say farewell to one of its long-time members and elders as she crosses. Judy Harrow was instrumental in expanding CoG’s reach from its birthplace in Northern California to the East Coast. She helped to establish the North East Local Council that assisted the growing number of Wiccans and Witches in that area. Judy was also a dedicated National Board member and one of the only East Coast members in attendance at the very first Merry Meet in 1981.

Judy’s work for CoG was only a small part of who she was and of what she contributed to the growth and well-being of the Pagan community. In all her efforts, Judy was keenly aware that history was being made step-by-step. On this day in early spring, we honor all that she did, all that she was and all the beauty in the legacy that she left. What’s remembered lives. And what lives, will bloom forever.

Many CoG members have expressed their feelings and shared stories on Facebook and in blog posts.  Here are some places to go to learn more about Judy's life and her legacy from the voices of the people that knew her and loved her.
