OBITUARY: Judy Carol Bradley

obituary for Judy Carol Bradley

On July 2, 2024 the Lord called Judy Carol Bradley to her heavenly home at the age of 73. She was born on July 29, 1950 in Franklin, KY to the late James Otha Halcomb and Myrtle Gregory Halcomb.

Judy is preceded in death by her husband, RD Bradley; son, David Eric Bradley.

She is survived by daughters, Carol (Travis) Davis and Ashley Bradley; sons, Karl (Kelly) Bradley, Thomas James “Jamie” Bradley; grandchildren, Casey Davis, A.J. Davis, Lillie Grace Bradley, Kassie (Colt) Collier, Kallie Bradley and Max Guess; Four great-grandsons and 1 great-granddaughter; brother and sister-in-law, James Allen and Linda Halcomb; and sister and brother-in-law, Juanita and Mike Clemmons; beloved niece, Mandee (Doug) Presley, Aubree Presley and beloved nephew, Bobby Joe Halcomb. And many other nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

What words can describe Judy Carol Bradley best? She loved her family, friends and church family dearly. She gave of her talents whether it be singing, playing the piano, teaching or doing whatever job needed to be done. She was always willing. She was a prayer warrior. She is a Child of God. She was a faithful and devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. To know Judy was to love her.

Judy loved to travel, go to her granddaughter and niece’s softball games, loved her talks with her grandsons and loved those around her. She loved her family time! She was known as the team Granny, Aunt Judy, or Mama J to many.

Most importantly, she loved the Lord. She was a member and faithful attendee of Hollis Chapel General Baptist Church for many, many years where she wore many hats through the years. Just one example would be playing the piano for the last time here on earth the Sunday before God called her home.

What an example for Christ and warrior Judy was for the good. She will always be with us in our hearts, her smile, her touch, her grace, her words of wisdom and the legacy she leaves behind.

We love you, Mama, Mema, Darlin, Sister, Aunt, Friend, Cousin
