Judy was a resident of Shreveport and graduated from Woodlawn High School in 1965. She worked for 30 years in the banking industry, working at Shreveport Bank & Trust, Pioneer Bank, Hibernia Bank, and Capital One Bank. She was a member of Summer Grove Baptist Church for most of her life and, during a revival service, made the most important decision of her life when she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior.  Judy enjoyed traveling with the Summer Grove Baptist Church JOY group for many years and loved worshipping with the ladies of the Esther Sunday School Class.  She loved puzzles and games, particularly crossword puzzles, word games, and card games.  One of her favorite hobbies was reading, particularly mystery books. Judy loved her family and particularly adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Judy is preceded in death by her father, mother, sister, Myrna Rae Touchstone, brother, Timothy Allen Touchstone, and son-in-law, Ray Paul Pellegrin. Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 59 years, Morris Graves; daughter, Kim Graves Pellegrin; daughter, Suzie Graves Head (Mike); son, Randy Graves (Alicia); brother W. Joseph Touchstone, M.D. (Steve); grandchildren, Adam Head (Kelli), Erin Head Pfau (Brian), Madison Graves, Tate Allen (Shelbey), Spencer Allen (Cheyenne); and great-grandchildren, Pryor Head, Branch Head, Brody Allen, and Brayden Allen; along with her nieces and nephews, and a multitude of friends.
