Sanders was inducted into the Hall of Honor by the Women’s Press Club of New York State earlier in the month of June. 

WRGB News Director Lisa Jackson released the following statement on Sanders' passing:

"The WRGB CBS6 family is saddened tonight and would like to express our deepest sympathy to Judy's family and many friends. Judy's spirit, integrity, and tenacity is part of our fabric. She was a kind and special person and a legacy journalist who will long live in our hearts and memories."
