Judy was very passionate about being with her family. She loved having all her family at her home and her "pool parties." Judy loved music and the many family and friends who played just for her.
Her most precious gift was bringing family and friends together and creating all their most treasured memories to hold in everyone's hearts. She always had "room for one more" and never knew a stranger or turned anyone away. She taught all her family and friends that being together, sharing, as well as taking care of each other and all who need it were and are the meaning of being here and having your best life.
She felt her family was her greatest accomplishment and was intensely proud of them and loved to share that with everyone. Judy loved hard, true and forever. Her life and legacy will be remembered always by those whose lives she touched.
A celebration of Judy's life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 10, at Sidell First Baptist Church, 301 N. Gray St., Sidell, with Pastor Craig Roller officiating. Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Friday, August 9, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Georgetown, 200 E. West St. She will be laid to rest in Woodlawn Cemetery, Indianola.
Memorial donations may be given in her name to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Please join her family in sharing memories through her Tribute Wall at www.sunsetfuneralhome.com
