Johnny, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Judy and we always had so much fun at First Baptist Church of Fairview. I know you are really going to miss her, but just think, she has that new body that she always talked about that she would get when she went to Heaven. I know Janie is really going to miss her too. I will be praying for all of you. Lois Betterton, January 14, 2021 Judy has that new body for which she has anxiously awaited for as long as I've known her. She was always such a blessing to so many. I will not be able to attend the service in person but will be "attending" online. May the sweet memories always bring a smile to each of you. T. Roberts, January 12, 2021 Such a sweet and loving woman, now in the arms of God. She will be missed. Tammy Mathis, January 11, 2021
