Mrs. Judy Ilene Ball Stanley, ae 66, passed away peacefully on Wednesday (September 9, 202) in a Bristol, Tennessee hospital. Born September 8, 1954 in Richlands, Virginia, a daughter of the late Luther and Margaret Ball. She married her high school sweetheart, Winford Stanley on May 27, 1972 and spent a joyous forty-eight years hand in hand. The rustling of angel wings could be heard as Judy let this world to be with the Lord. She was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, she was the glue to her entire family. She was a strong soldier and prayer warrior, rather than wishing her back, we know she was and is, basking in the glory of the Lord. She is reunited with her mom, dad, and a host of brothers and sisters that went on before. The Ball family is picking and singing like never before.
Survivors include her loving husband, Winford Stanley of the home; three children, Monica Proffitt and husband, Rodney of Haysi, Misty Shepard and husband, Greg of Honaker, and Jason Stanley and wife, Tiffany of Oakwood; ten grandchildren, Brittany, Daquan, Damon, Erica, Hannah, Hunter, Tonya, Emma, Jena, and Chelsea; nine great-grandchildren, Miley, Gunner, Rylan, Willow, Jakobi, Matthew, Adeline, Ayla, and Skylah also survive.
In Revelations 21:4 John writes about heaven and says “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
