She also was the loving and fun grandmother to Mary Corinne Walters, Sarah Kathryn Walters and Robert Elliot Walters. A graduate of Mary Washington College, Judy taught countless children in 5th and 2nd grades at Spiller Primary school and loved nothing better than to run into one of her students around town or hearing of their achievements throughout her life. She did not view the world through race, color or status—she only viewed the world with love. That love extended to every animal that she could possibly adopt and every plant that she could cultivate inside or out. Judy was preceded in death by her parents T. Barclay, Sr. and Corinne Sexton Allison, and one brother T. Barclay Allison, Jr. Survivors also include an extremely close group of sisters and brothers-in-law. Mrs. Betty Mallory, Mrs. Corinne Johnson and her husband Richard and Mrs. Frances Emerson and her husband Frank.
