Judy Fleming Lowrance was born November 8, 1944, in Mooresville, N.C., raised in Mount Mourne, N.C., and was a longtime resident of Boone, N.C.

She passed away on December 12, 2023, after a very sudden decline in her health. She was 79 years of age.

Judy is survived by her sister, Helen F. Mundy (Dale), and sister, Becky F Carter; her nieces, Diana Carter, Debbie Leazer, and Stephanie Read (Bill); and nephews, Daniel Fleming (Sara), Billy Fleming, and Noah Fleming, her beloved Nicholas Hogue, whom she raised as grandson, his children, her cat Freddie, and her many cousins.

Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Ronni Lowrance; mother, Inez Nance Fleming; father, William Fleming; and brother, Barry Fleming; along with her beloved Michael Smith, whom she raised as her son.

Judy graduated from Mooresville High School and retired from Kangaroo after a long career in management. She was an avid golfer and spent her later years enjoying her golf ladies in Boone.

Judy loved children and as you can see from above she was blessed by being able to raise so many of “her children” as she called them all. She was also a great-aunt to Dylan Fleming, Caleb Harris, Avery, Christmas, and Seven Fleming.
