Judy Glore, founder of Heart of Tucson

Judy Glore, a lifelong horse lover who used her passion to work tirelessly to rescue abused and neglected horses, lost her battle with lung cancer May 12 in Tucson, Ariz.

Glore founded Heart of Tucson, a horse rescue organization run by volunteers. Local television station KGUN9 featured Heart of Tucson and Glore's work several times on their news, and produced a wonderful tribute to the equine advocate, whose husband and son have vowed to continued her legacy.

When she was diagnosed with cancer last September, Glore found strength in her horses, telling KGUN9, “I see the fighting that they've been through,” she said.  “They've been through way more than me or a lot of us, and if they can do it, I can do it.”

    Today would have been Judy’s 55th birthday, a true angel to every life she touched, gone way too soon. Heartfelt sympathy to Judy’s family and many friends, rest in peace Judy…

  • Mercy Turano

    My deepest sympathy to Judy’s family and her many friends. Judy was an inspiration and role model to so many, her life touched people from coast to coast. Rest in peace, dear Judy, we know you are in the company of your beloved rescued horses who went before you!

  • Among many, many others, Judy rescued Dyna King, a son of Dynaformer, from starvation in the Arizona desert and restored his dignity. She was a shining example and role model for all who operate equine rescues and will be sorely missed.

  • I had no idea Judy was diagnosed with cancer. She never spoke to me about it, since she stayed focused on saving horses. She is a True Hero. God Bless You, Judy and your family and friends. You will be dearly missed.

    Judy was tireless, impassioned and driven by the purest love of these magnificent athletes..Everyone will miss her. But no one will miss her more than her horses. Thanks to her terrific family for carrying on her work.

    What a loss for her family, her horses and the rest of humanity. Although too short, it was a life well lived.
