Southern, Judith Ann (Judy) – age 65, died at home after a 4 year battle with cancer. Judy was born and reared in Knoxville, TN, and graduated Knoxville Catholic High School and the University of Tennessee.

Judy bravely fought a horrible disease and almost won. She was a brave, sweet and loyal woman. She read voraciously, loved history and could converse on almost any subject.
