Judith Evelyn Colon (Flagg) born July 7, 1947 (71), passed away on Friday, September 28, 2018 at Wilson Hospital from complications of kidney disease. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Evelyn and Charles Flagg, the fifth of six children.  She was predeceased by her loving husband, whom she missed dearly, Carlos Colon (January 2018) and her youngest daughter, Tina Atkinson (August, 2006) as well as her brother Butch (Kathleen) Flagg and sisters Beverly Hackett and Denise (John) Simpkins. She is survived by her sister, Kathy (Tom) Connolly and brother, Aubrey (Judy) Flagg as well as her daughter, Gerri (Jim) Allegrino. She leaves behind 8 grandchildren: Michael, Mare, Ashley, Paula, Tory, Anthony, Dakota, and Samantha and 8 great grandchildren (including an unborn great grandson): Jakob, Samora, Sydnie, Kloey, Avien, Ethyn, and Zander. 
Mom was a Bell System (eventually Verizon) employee in Boston Massachusetts for 20+ years starting as a residential order taker and working her way up to manager. She then retired to Puerto Rico with her husband. They traveled extensively and enjoyed many great times with family and friends. One of her favorite family events was rooting on the New England Patriots on Sundays (and Superbowl Sundays) with her very special nieces Rosie, Lily, and Nena, brother-in-law Roberto and his wife Carmen as well as special nephews, Papo and Pucho Santiago (Boston) and then with her daughter and grandchildren when she moved to Binghamton, NY - she was an awesome football Sunday/Superbowl hostess! She also had a very special place in her heart for her nephew, Rob Connolly (the good son!).  She enjoyed her White (dark) Russian's, her British TV mysteries, the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox, her Harlequin Romances (back in her T riding days in Boston), card/board games (dominoes), and lounging in her pool in PR.  She loved her country and the U.S. Flag and was a regular donor to the Wounded Veterans.  She also had a special place in her heart for her dog companion during her last days, Simon.  She was the "life of the party" and will be missed dearly.
