Judy Redden, age 58, left her earthly body and arrived at her heavenly home on February 12, 2018. She was born February 23, 1959 in Brevard, North Carolina. For the past 16 years Judy had been a resident of Tazewell, TN.
Judy was one of the most compassionate and caring people that God created. The intensity of her spirit was only matched by the love she had for her husband Edwin, stepson Will, daughter Mandy, and her grandchildren, Maylyn and Barrett.
Judy's energetic and cheerful personality caused her to light up any room she entered. Her charisma and kind-heartedness were well known and left a lasting impression wherever she went.
Judy accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior July 20, 1997 at Carrs Hill Baptist Church. She was a devout follower of Christ and left nothing to the imagination when describing her close relationship with the Lord. For many years, Judy had been a member of Shawanee Missionary Baptist Church. Judy had a passion for all things four-legged, especially horses. She spent many years caring for animals while meeting some of her best friends along the way.
Judy is survived by her husband, Edwin; stepson, Will; daughter, Mandy (Brad) Seal; grandchildren, Maylyn and Barrett Seal; mother, Mary Lou Allison; sister Cindy (Jimmy) Shelton; brother, Danny (Sandy) Allison, and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and many more family and friends who she loved dearly.
Judy was reunited in heaven with her father, Heath Allison; grandparents, Wae and Silver Mann & Dorse and Sadie Allison, and many more loved family and friends.
Family will receive friends on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 10-11:30 AM and Shawanee Baptist Church. A celebration of life will follow. Family will again receive friends on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 2-3:30 PM at Carrs Hill Baptist Church. A celebration of life will follow.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and/or 106.9: The Light. Judy made donations to both organizations each month. They were near and dear to her heart.
