Described as loving, strong, kind, loyal and compassionate, life for Judy revolved around taking care of her family. Nothing was more important to her than ensuring their happiness.

Judy loved spending time at the beach. Life’s worries disappeared when she saw the beautiful North Carolina coast. Judy had many fond memories of her G.E. family and the loving, lasting friendships formed during her working career.

Judy worked 36 years with General Electric retiring in 2000. She attended Walnut Creek Free Will Baptist Church.

Hines; special nephew, Kevin Whitfield; two sisters-in-law and a brother-in-law, Jennifer Whitfield, Rose Whitfield and Elton Whitfield; special family friend, Danny Taylor; and her beloved four-legged friends, Abby, Sylvester and Harley. In addition to her parents, Judy was preceded in death by a sister, Glenda S. Lean; and a brother, Jerry Sutton.
