Judy and I began school at Lakeside elementary. First grade through the 12th. Judy was always such a nice - kind person. We always had fun. A memory that sticks out in my mind --- JUDY COULD YODLE. I remember in many classes - not sure if we were having a talent contest or what .. but Judy would always Yodle for us. We LOVED it. I am so sorry for your loss. I was in Reidsville - Friday morning and would have loved to have stopped by Wilkerson to pay my respects --- but it was only posted this morning, and I am viewing at 1:48 Saturday afternoon. So sorry I missed paying my final respects. Lily Chatham

Judy was a wonderful friend to my mother from childhood even until today. My mother enjoyed the many talks on the phone that went on for hours. She will be greatly missed. Dawn Cook, daughter of Barbara Griffin Cook

Judy was such a precious soul with a heart of gold. I'm so thankful for the memories we shared through the years. She taught so many and truly cared for them all. She will definitely be missed. My heart goes out to the family and church. :heart:
