Judy Belinda Briscoe Roberts, age 69, of Spindale, North Carolina, passed away shortly after midnight on Friday, March 15, 2019 at Hospice of the Carolina Foothills Inpatient in Forest City. A native of Rutherford County, born April 16, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Gwendolyn Walker Pritchard.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one son, “Little” Bruce Hill; one daughter, Gwendolyn Shehan; three sisters and one brother.
Judy, who was of the Baptist faith, was truly a woman of God. Before her health began to decline, she enjoyed being outdoors, especially tending to her flowers. Known to have had a big heart, she loved and lived for her grandchildren.
She is survived by one son, Shane Roberts; two sisters, Patty Welborn and Libby Hendrix; two granddaughters, Cassie Scarlett (Chris) and Heather Shehan; and eight great grandchildren, Taliyah, Tamiyah, Hezekiah, Rylan, Araeyah, Ayvah, Lincoln and Kashyn.
A service to celebrate the life of Judy will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. at West Point Baptist Church, 1160 Union Road in Rutherfordton, with Pastor Lance Scarlett officiating.
