Judy Ann Lewis Gambrell, 66, passed away on Friday, November 25, 2022. Born on January 21, 1956, in Davidson County, Tenn., she was the daughter of the late Elvin C. Lewis Jr. and Mary Christine Duncan Lewis.

Judy was a 1974 graduate of White House High School. She was a long-time employee of the Iredell-Statesville School System in the Child Nutrition Department until she retired. She then took a part-time position with Mooresville High School in Child Nutrition.

Her children and grandchildren just know she is up there with her late husband George, sitting at the kitchen table, drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and watching the news!

Gambrell of Iredell County; grandson, Shane A.
