I worked with Judy at TSB. I’ll never forget going to call on a customer with her - a gruff old fella. He was so mean to me, but changed his attitude when I said the word “moonshine.” Judy & I laughed all the way back to the bank! She was always so sweet to me!

Amy and Janice, I am so sorry for your loss. Judy and I shared a lot of comforting after our mothers were gone. Her kind words meant so much to me. Janice, we were blessed with amazing parents and, for you, a dear sister. Amy, you were blessed with such a sweet mother, and I know how deep that bond can be. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers for comfort and peace.

Love, Harriet Ann

Amy and Janice, I have such good memories and pictures of Judy and our time at Immanuel when Jackie and Mary Ellen Cooper were our SS teachers...Alcoa swimming pool and weekends in Gatlinburg.
And then Memories of Dot, Judy and you eating out with us and the great night at your house when you fed us tacos.
More recently of running into Judy and Janice at restaurants when it seemed Janice was living here again because she was always around. Janice I am so sorry for your loss.
Amy, thank you for being such a good daughter to Judy. Blessings and peace to you and Janice.

I remember Judy from the time I was a little girl attending Immanuel Baptist Church with my family, before Janice married Garry. I always thought she was pretty and she had such a beautiful singing voice. She was in the choir and I remember her singing solos. That was a long time ago but I do remember. She also was in the choir at Sevier Heights Baptist for a while, and so were we. I also remember her from Valley Fidelity Bank. I am sorry she was in poor health for the last years of her life, but now she is sick no more and she will rest in peace. Praise God!

I remember the wonderful get together we had with the family, I believe it was at Missy and Boone’s House. You arrived after sunset and we all set and ate. It was a happy family. Rest In Peace Judy
