Judy Thornhill Germany

July 10, 1958 – Sept. 12, 2019

 

NATCHEZ – Memorial services for Judy Thornhill Germany, 61, of Vidalia, who died Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019, at Merit Health Natchez, will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, at First Baptist Church in Vidalia with the Rev. Wesley Faulk and Dr. Ralph E. Webber officiating.

Mrs. Germany was born July 10, 1958, in Natchez, the daughter of Julius Delane Thornhill and Betty Sue Stansell Thornhill.

She was a member of First Baptist Church Vidalia and served as a volunteer for outreach programs (Celebrate Recovery) through the church, and also a very active member of Relay for Life.

Judy believed in investing herself in the lives of those she held dear, from her friends at International Paper and the Concordia Parish School Board to her group of close girlfriends.  She made sure to spend precious time with each one and loved them with her time and her heart.  She loved to play Cootie, go on trips to the beach, visit grandchildren, participate in youth activities at First Baptist Church, Vidalia.

She loved us all fiercely and showed us with how she spent her time here on earth.  She ministered to us all here and truly lived as the hands and feet of her Jesus.

Mrs. Germany was preceded in death by her parents; father-in-law, Avis Lee Germany and mother-in-law, Mary Irene Germany.

Survivors include one son, Lee Germany and wife, Lauren, of Nesbit; two grandchildren, Analise Faith Germany and Luke Delane Germany; two sisters, Karen Thornhill Biglane and husband, Pat, and Paula Thornhill Edwards and husband, Duke; four nieces, Joanna Biglane McNeel and husband, Jason, Caroline Edwards Hinson and husband, Murphy, Christy Coats and husband, Danny, and Cindy Johnson and husband, Michael; three nephews, Patrick Biglane Jr. and wife, Melinda, Preston Edwards and wife, Ashley, and Jimmy Dean Franks; and a number of great-nieces and great-nephews and precious friends too numerous to name.

Honorary pallbearers will be Patrick Biglane Jr., Preston Edwards, Jason McNeel, Murphy Hinson, Jimmy Dean Franks, Michael Johnson, Hunter Cook and Chris Smith.

Memorials may be made to First Baptist Church, Vidalia, or the Concordia Parish Relay for Life.
