Memories Timeline


  1. Judy was my sister n law. Tommy was my late husban brother. He is the last one of his family to go to Heaven. Her brother and Kevin her son will truly miss her. See was a dear friend as well as my sister inlaw. She is now with Tommy as well as all of her family and her friends. Kevin she is always just a pray away. I know it will be hard losing dad and mom so close to each other but remember they will always be with you in everything you do. love Charline your aunt i love you

  2. Aunt Judy, you will be so missed! We love you and Praise God, you are in the arms of our heavenly father.

  3. Kevin,
    I am so sorry that you have lost both parents so close together. I worked under Judy’s supervision for 25 years. Kevin, the most important thing that has ever happened in my life was when I bowed at an altar and received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I hope that you have come to know Him too. If not, I would ask you to see the pastor there at Turkey Creek or some other good church to be shown the way. You will never regret it. It’s been 48 years, and I have never gotten over it.

  4. Kevin: Please know that your Mom’s Enka Class of 1961 is mourning with you. Judy’s January 2023 envelope for the Candler Knob Tattler is already stamped to send to her.😓
    We will remember her sweetness forever.
    Be strong and brave.🙏
