Judy (Gill) Stewart
January 20, 1945 - April 24, 2024

Judy Dianne (Gill) Stewart, 79, of Jacksonville, went home to be with the Lord on April 24, 2024 at Onslow Memorial Hospital after fighting a long battle with illness. A native of Onslow County, she was born on January 20, 1945 to the late Frank R. Gill and Thelma (Swinson) Gill.

A dedicated Supervisor for many years at M &A Commercial Carpet Cleaning and a trusted notary public. Auto Sales, Judy was known for her strong work ethic and love for her job. She found joy in her career and was reluctant to retire.

Judy’s interests were diverse, from enjoying the beach and watching movies to cherishing moments with her family at gatherings. Born and raised in Jacksonville, she later moved to Rocky Hill, CT, only to return to Jacksonville with her children, where she found true happiness.

Family meant everything to Judy. She is survived by her children, Tracey Metts (Warren) of Hubert, David Stewart, Jr. (Carol) of Richlands, and Diane Stewart, with whom she lived with. She leaves behind her beloved grandchildren, Kevin Perry of WI, Dayne Perry of Jacksonville, Ashley Storm of Jacksonville, Deonté Ogletree of Tallahassee, FL, Andre Stewart of Kansas City, MO, Andrién Simmons of Kansas City, MO, Shane Stewart of Richlands, and Alyssa Stewart of Richlands. Her close-knit siblings include Shirley Humphrey, Linda Thumbling (George), Gary Gill, and Randy Gill (Beth), all of Jacksonville. Judy also leaves behind several great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and David Stewart, Sr., the father of her children, who remained a friend throughout her life.

Judy was a caretaker, a fun-loving, easy-going person who loved her family wholeheartedly. Being a mother and a “yaya” to her grandchildren brought immense joy to her life.

A memorial service to honor Judy’s life is being planned, and details will be shared by the family. Judy will be dearly missed by all who were blessed enough to know her, love her and be loved by her.

    Sincerely sorry for the family’s loss of your beloved mother, Judy. May you find comfort in knowing that your mother’s love is never-ending, as it will forever remain in the memories you’ve made with her over the years. May those memories bring smiles to your faces, even behind tears shed. Comfort can be found in God’s promises of life without death, on a paradise earth, forever, as God intended from the beginning. (Rev.21:4; Acts 24:15; Ps. 37:29)
