Judith Anne Clough (née Salomon) of Vineyard Haven died on May 16 from complications due to Alzheimer’s disease. She was 82.

Her husband of 58 years, Bradford Potter Clough, was by her side, following on his many years of loving caregiving.

An artist, gardener, nurse, children’s librarian, and choir member, Jude spent a lifetime bringing love, laughter, and beauty to her family and communities. And hugs on Main street.

In addition to Bradford, she is survived by their children, Lauretta, Benjamin, and Wendell and his wife Deb, and two grandchildren, Llewellyn and Rhiannon Smith. She also leaves her sister Denise Sherman and her husband Stuart, brothers in law and sisters-in-law, and nieces and nephews.

In lieu of a service, Bradford invites all those who knew Jude to plant a flower, bake some cookies to share, hug a friend, smile at a stranger, hum a song, or allow someone to do something nice for you.
