June 17, 2022, 79, Goldsboro –
Judy Jones Boyd, 79, left this life early Friday morning, June 17, 2022 in Kitty Askins Hospice Center with her family present. Judy was born in Wayne County to the late Sidney and Bessie Evans Jones on May 21, 1943. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Kenneth Abner Boyd and brothers, Willard Jones and Sidney Jones.
Judy’s faith was top priority in her life. Early in her adult life, she worshiped and served the Lord at Clingman Street Church of God. Later, she served as a member of Goldsboro Worship Center. Judy used her giftedness for the Lord and lived for Jesus with all her heart. For Judy, this meant making sure her children were at church as they grew up. She simply offered God’s love, grace and knowledge of His Word. Judy had a hunger and thirst for the Lord. This only grew stronger as she matured in her faith.
Judy was a faithful wife, supporting and loving her husband, Kenneth, until his death. She was a mother who had a powerful influence on her children. Judy adored her grandbabies and didn’t miss an opportunity to show them love and support. As the Bible teaches, Judy’s children rise up and call her blessed.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a graveside service to celebrate Judy’s life at 2:00 p.m. in Eastern Carolina State Veterans Cemetery with Pastor Danny Johnson officiating.
Judy is survived by her son, Kenneth Lee Boyd; daughter, Krystal Leigh Lewis; and grandchildren, Isaiah Jordan Lewis, Kyson Thomas Scott and Alex Dishman. She is also survived by her sisters, Bett Jones Jernigan and Peggy Jones Hare.
Flowers are welcome or memorials may be made to Goldsboro Worship Center, 900 W. New Hope Road, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
