Judy grew up in the Morrow Mountain area of Stanly county and graduated high school from the last Badin High class in 1962. After graduation, she moved on to a career in the textile industry with her husband, Harry, where the two founded Stanly Garment Company. During her textile years she became an avid antique collector and worked for several auction companies; the last being Nance Auction. She spent her last 15 years working at Still Oil company, where she and her son fussed daily. Most will remember her yard sales on Saturdays at the service station. She worked hard and hustled 25 hours a day, but enjoyed spending her spare time with her grandchildren. She touched the lives of everyone who met her, and will be greatly missed by all.
She is survived by her daughter, Lori Ross (John); son, Jamie Dunn; step-son, Jackie Dunn; grandchildren, Jackson, Cooper, Jewell and Josie; sister, Peggy Springer (Roy); niece, Tonya Graeff (Shawn); and great-niece, Riley Graeff.
