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.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, October 28, 2021, in the Allen Cemetery off of Bethel Church Road in Dublin with Rev. Cameron McGill and Rev. Warren Hill officiating.
