Tar Heel

Judith “Judy” Woodell Dove, 74, of Tar Heel, NC passed away on October 25, 2021 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward Lemons and Johnsie Thomas Lemons, and grandson, Dylan Norton.

Judy was a loving lady with a heart of gold. She always treated you like family whether you were or not and you never left hungry or dissatisfied when at her home. She could cook a southern meal that would melt in your mouth. Her home and her yard were kept with pride. Judith enjoyed spending time with her family and trips to Maggie Valley. Her sweet spirit and southern hospitality will not soon be forgotten.
