Judy was the oldest of ten children and a beautiful sister with a loving soul. She had one child, James Bradley, who she devoted her life to loving and took pride in being his mother. Along with her motherly instinct came her love for animals especially her poodle Sissy, who lived to be 21 years old and her cat Shadow, who lived to be ten years old. She had such a tender place for animals in her heart that she would pick up stray needy animals and nurse them back to health. Coming from a musical family, Judy possessed the talent of playing the guitar accompanied by her angelic voice. Judy had many professions which included graduating from nursing school, drove an 18-wheeler, mail truck driver, and a Tuscaloosa City school bus driver for ten years before retiring. The most important part of her life was her relationship with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, so we can only imagine the joy she felt when she saw Jesus and the reunion with our family in heaven. We will miss our big sister and her humorous prankster loving ways, but we will meet you again in the sweet by and by sister.
