Judy Ann Thomas, age 78, went home to be with her Lord and Savior and her loved ones who have passed on before her on Sunday at Johnson City Medical Center following a brief but courageous fight with kidney disease.
Judy was a member of First Church of God where she loved to assist with Noah’s Ark. Judy worked at Magnavox, Laughlin Memorial Hospital, and Hurd Lock before becoming a full time homemaker. She was a great lover of her cats, befriending many who showed up. Loved to work in her flowers and yard. She was always one to help anyone in need as best she could. She was a sweet, kind, loving, faithful, and affectionate wife, sister, and neighbor. She had a strong personality and once meeting her you could never forget her. She will be deeply missed by family and her many friends and wonderful neighbors.
