Judith “Judy” Ann Strader Carter, 75, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at Alamance Regional Medical Center surrounded by her children, after a sudden illness. She was born October 17, 1945 to the late Albert Green Strader, Jr. and Annie Mae Alverson Strader of Rockingham County, NC. Judy was the wife of 39 years to Donnie Ray Carter who died in 2016.
A graduate of Appalachian State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, Judy retired as a teacher with Alamance-Burlington Schools after 40 years of service. She also worked for the Burlington Walmart for 23 years. Judy lived her life putting God first and was a member of First Baptist Church of Whitsett. She enjoyed baking, gardening and helping others, but most of all she loved spending time with her family. Judy will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by her daughter, Michelle Hodges (Jerry); a son, Brian Carter; stepdaughters, Delores Wilson (Jim), Angela Childress; 7 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren; a sister, Jane Beck (Mike); brothers, Albert Strader III (Robbie), Dwain Strader (Susan), Gerald Strader (Anita); and numerous nieces and nephews. Judy was preceded in death by her husband, parents, a stepson-in-law, Billy Childress, and one grandson.
