Judy is survived by her daughter, Marcia Johnson Telford (William) and son, William Hutchins Johnson, Jr. (Katherine). She will be missed dearly by all, including her eight grandchildren and step-grandchildren; as well as her four great-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren, with another on the way.
She was pre-deceased by her loving husband of over fifty years, William Hutchins Johnson; brothers, Clifton Farriar Davis, Jr. and Charles Bryan Davis; and daughter, Juliette Johnson Trask.
