Our beloved Judy Lane Rhodes Robinson, our one and only, “Gei Gei”, passed away peacefully at her home in Senatobia, Mississippi. At the age of 75 years, Judy was released from her illness, and her beautiful sweet spirit ascended into Heaven on Monday, March 23, 2020.
She will be lovingly remembered by her devoted husband, Dwight (Dee) of 50 years. Her adoring children: Pam (Bradley), Amy, Jason (Kim); grandchildren: Eli, McGee, Millie, Beckett, Jace and Beau; as well as numerous relatives and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Ella Mae Norfleet Rhodes and Wiley Monroe Rhodes; and brother, Robert Wiley Rhodes
Family was always first. She was our rock. We all knew she was our #1 fan. She was an unbelievable Mother and Grandmother. Her capacity to love, and her generosity of all she had was endless. She was a good wife and a great friend to many. She was a faithful Christian who displayed her Christian qualities in her actions and relationships with all. She was educated and articulate. She was proud to be a graduate of the University of Memphis. Go Tigers! She was a gifted artist and enjoyed sharing her skills and her work with anyone who was interested.
Most knew her as, Mrs. Judy, around Como. She seemed to be the one community Mom all kids knew who was cooking. We never knew who would be at the table. They loved her SWEET TEA because she served the real deal! She loved every second of it! What many might not know though, is that she burned every roll, biscuit, cinnamon roll and piece of bread she ever made! She would scrape the bottoms off the bread, and hand it to us on the way out of the house. I don’t think she ever knew we threw some of it into the flower beds on the way to the car.
Through all of her years of illness, she never complained. Her beautiful smile was on her face as soon as someone walked in the room. Though as a family we are sad to let her go, we are joyful that her suffering is now over. She can be whole and well, and be with her Jesus as she paints her masterpiece.
Due to health concerns, a private graveside service will be held at Bethesda Cemetery on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org).
She prays: “The time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
…and the Lord opens His welcoming arms and replies: “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21
