Judith Ann Rolls

October 31, 1940July 15, 2021

Judith Ann Rolls, 80, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, July 15, 2021. She was born to Frederick and Audrey Pierre Beatty October 31, 1940 in Chickasaw, Alabama. Judy was an enthusiastic homemaker – she loved that she could build a nest for her family – which was fitting since she enjoyed birdwatching. She enjoyed completing word search and jigsaw puzzles, and was in love with radio station contests. Judy was a devout Catholic, and a parishioner of St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Mt. Vernon, Alabama. She had an infectious spirit and smile, and was a kind soul. Judy was a wonderful woman, and will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 39 years, David Henry Rolls; her mother, Audrey Balance; father, Fred Beatty; grandmother, Loyis “Mama” Pierre; and grandfather, Henry (Hallie) “Daddy" Pierre.

Left to cherish Judy’s memories are her two daughters, Gina Hovell (Donald) and Nicole Goldstein (Steve); four grandchildren, Brian Hovell (April), Jennifer Hovell (Ashley), Kailin Goldstein, and Lauren Goldstein; three great-grandchildren, Samantha, Isabella, and Thomas; two aunts that were like sisters: June Smither and Jean Ryan; special friend and sitter, Beth Owens; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and other cherished family and friends.

The family would like to extend the utmost gratitude to Kerry Young, Judy’s SAAD’s Home Healthcare nurse, who has been a pillar to them for many years.

A memorial mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at St. Cecilia Catholic Church, 1305 Old Military Road, Mt. Vernon, AL 36560.

If you so choose, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to St. Cecilia Catholic Church, Mt. Vernon, AL.
