Miss Evie Kathryn Judge, 7 year old daughter of Adam and Emily Thomas Judge, of Pittsboro, went from being an earthly angel to a heavenly angel on Sunday night, February 28, 2010 after waging a courageous fight against brain tumors.
Evie was born in UNC Hospitals on January 19, 2003 and had bravely and fearlessly fought cancer since her first brain tumor at 19 months of age, another at age 6, and her most recent one just over 4 days ago. She lived her entire life in Chatham County. Evie enjoyed learning and loved school as a first grader at Pittsboro Elementary. Although her time here was brief, her zest for life impacted those around her and in her community tremendously. She loved playing outside with her friends and sidewalk chalk with her “Poppy”. Evie liked to draw and color, watching Spongebob, loved going to the beach, and always enjoyed going out to eat at Virlie’s on Friday night.
Surviving, in addition to her parents Adam and Emily, are Evie’s grandparents Rusty and Sharon Thomas and Kay Judge all of Pittsboro; great-grandparents Marie Mitchell and Gladys Thomas of Pittsboro; aunts and uncles Kady and Philip Nearing of Denver, CO and Aimee and Matt Allred of Summerfield; and cousins Jacob and Luke Nearing, Lindsey and Thomas Wheeler and Jake Allred. Preceding Evie in death were great-grandfathers Bob Mitchell and Julian Thomas.
Evie’s life will be celebrated at 2:00 pm Thursday, March 4, 2010 at Emmaus Baptist Church with Pastors Chris Gambos and Steve Moore presiding. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.
Friends may visit with the family in the church fellowship hall following the service.
