Judy loved to sing. She enjoyed playing Candy Crush where she got to level 1,000. She enjoyed sewing, shopping online, cooking, and crocheting. She loved to fish in her younger days with her grandkids and she enjoyed spoiling her family.

The family would like to thank Hearth Hospice: Cassandra Wallin, Crystal, and Chris for being there until the end.

The funeral service will be held Thursday at 2 pm in the Wilbanks Memorial Chapel with Pastors Ed Hise, Dennis Chambers, and Lowell Cantrell officiating. Honorary preachers are Randall Abbott and Alfred Holland.
