Mrs. Judy Duncan York, 71, of Ellenboro, died Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at Hospice of the Carolina Foothills.
She was the widow of Wayne York, and a daughter of the late Charles Duncan, Sr. and Annie Laura Duncan. She was also preceded in death by her stepmother, Louise Duncan, and a sister, Nancy Duncan. She retired as a secretary with the Department of Social Services where she had developed a lifetime family of friends. She  loved to cook and entertain family and friends. She enjoyed going out to eat  - especially new restaurants to "try something different". She had a love for music - she loved going to see bands, singing in the choir and playing the piano. No  matter what life threw at her, she would respond, "It's a time."
Judy is survived by her son, Steve York and wife Missy, of Mooresboro; her brothers, Charles Duncan, Jr. and wife Nancy, of Crossville, TN, and John Duncan and wife Melanie, of Gastonia; her sisters, Sandra Biggerstaff and husband Bill, of Concord, and Susan Isenhour and husband Bill, of Purlear; her granddaughters, Grace and Katie York; a brother-in-law, Phil York and wife Cathy, of Ellenboro; and 10 nieces and nephews.
The Funeral will be conducted at 2:00 pm Saturday, August 3, 2019 at Race Path Baptist Church. The Rev. Randall Cooper will officiate. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Pallbearers are Bob Hunt, Paul Matheny, Kenneth Pannell, Bob Peeler, Albert Radford, and Roger Scruggs.
The Visitation will be in the church sanctuary following the service.

My love and prayers for Judy's family in the days ahead! Judy and I shared many wonderful times together over the years. We shared our church family gatherings along with beach trips, eating out, and raising our children together. So much love and memories we shared. She will be dearly missed but I will remember all our conversations and will be able to see her again. RIP my loving friend!

Thoughts and Prayers to Judy's family and friends. I sure will miss her phone calls to the Peeler residence when Lynn and Bobbi are home from TX.
