Judy Nadine Barbee, age 76, of Scroggins, passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at the Whispering Pines Nursing Home in Winnsboro. Judy was born on June 14, 1941 in Carrollton, Texas to the late William Henry Leo and Lucille Byers Savell.
Judy married the love of her life and her best friend, Billy G. Barbee, on September 16, 1958. Together they would share the next 34 years raising a family and living a lifetime of memories. He preceded her in death on September 24, 2002.
Judy moved to Scroggins in 1984 where she and her family quickly found home. They attended the Clearwater Baptist Church. Judy worked the majority of her life as a booker for various industries but the time she spent at the Cypress Springs Country Club was by far her favorite job, mostly for the free golfing. When her health allowed, Judy enjoyed quilting and sewing. She made countless gowns, dresses, and quilts for her grandchildren when they were growing up. Those who knew Judy best will always remember the love she had for fishing, cooking, and even water skiing. Judy leaves behind a legacy of love, dedication, and devotion that will live on in the hearts of those she knew and loved.
Judy is survived by one son, Billy G. Barbee, Jr., and wife Kathy, of Slaton, Texas; two daughters, Larisa Barrett, and husband Roger, of Mount Vernon and Karen Brown, and husband Steve, of Lewisville, Texas; grandchildren, Roger Barrett, Jr., and wife Jennifer, Michelle Rodriguez, and husband Jose’, Kristan Brown, Stephanie Brown, and Sarah Brown; by 16 great-grandchildren; one brother, Leo Sabell of Canton; two sisters, Barbara Lewis of Kopperl, Texas and Becky Bray, and husband Pete, of Lorena, Texas; and by a host of other relatives and very special friends.
