Age: 52 Address: Burnsville, North Carolina Date of Death: Tuesday, June 10, 2014 Arrangements: Holcombe Brothers Funeral Home
Details: Judith Ann Whitson peacefully left our earth Tuesday, June 10th at the John F. Keever Jr. Solace Center in Asheville.
She is lovingly survived by her husband of 17 years, Clell Whitson; mother-in-law, Macie H. Whitson, of Marion; sister-in-law, Genell Whitson, of Swannanoa; and a brother-in-law, Michael Whitson, of Marion. Also surviving Judy are her mother, Faye McGaha Fairchild, of Morganton; daughter, Latouia Sutton, of Spruce Pine; son, Larry Sutton, of Morganton; sisters, Carla (Mike) Henson, of Morganton, Melinda Guffey, of Raleigh and Jane Stamey, of San Diego, Calif.; brother, Jimmy Sutton; an aunt, Shirley Fairchild, of Canton; numerous nieces, nephews and special friends whose names are many; and most of all, her beloved furry children, Sadie, Doc and Vern.
Judy was born Oct. 30, 1961, in Waynesville, lived the last 15 years in Marion and retired from the N.C. Department of Corrections as a guard. She and Clell just recently moved to Burnsville where her heart and soul were deeply rooted. She lived a life always taking care of the friends who found themselves always with her and Clell at the cherished "Monroe House." Ever the "mother and sister" to each of us, she made sure all were fed and had warm blankets on cold nights. It was her favorite thing for all to gather 'round the fire pit with her as we all told tall tales on each other, and remembering she told many on herself as well. Riding her favorite 4 wheeler "Bertha" through the woods of Little Creek with all her friends would be what she would call "a great day." The love she showed us all will be held as a treasure until we meet again. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations to one's favorite charity would be her wish.
