Judy G. Collins, lifelong resident of Green Creek, went home to be with Jesus at home on Aug. 25, 2011 at 10 a.m. after a courageous 12 1/2 year battle with brain cancer. A native of Polk County, she was the daughter of Edith Greenway Rogers and the late John Thomas Greenway.
She is survived by her beloved fiancé, Troy Brannon; two sons, Keith White (Marsha) and Thomas White (Kay); a granddaughter, Sherri Wilson; two great-grandchildren, David Keith Wilson and Amelia Wilson; two sisters, Hazel Walker (Gerald) and Dianne Glover (Scott); a brother, Horace Greenway (Ann) and her loveable little dog, Walker.
She had a lifelong love for helping people and followed through with that by following in public service, becoming a police officer with the Old Fort and Marion, N.C., and later becoming an EMT paramedic for Polk County.
She was a faithful member of Hickory Grove Baptist Church.
The family will receive friends from noon-2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27 at Petty Funeral Home with services following. Burial will follow at Sandy Plains ARP Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hickory Grove Baptist Church Children’s Sunday School, Sandy Plains ARP Church Children’s Sunday School Class or Hospice of the Carolina Foothills.
