Judy Sistrunk Williamson

 

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Judy Sistrunk Williamson, 75, left earthly life April 24, 2023, to claim the eternal life promised by her Lord, Jesus Christ.

Born in Shreveport January 30, 1948, to James Kermit and Margery Morrison Sistrunk, Judy lived most of her life in her hometown. She attended Fair Park High School and Ayers Business School and was a career employee of the State of Louisiana where she worked in Workforce Development.

Judy will be remembered for her musical talents – both instrumental and vocal. She was chosen for All-State Orchestra in violin for four years and All-State Choir for three years. She also played the piano and organ. Judy led and sang in choirs at each church she attended and especially loved playing the handbells at her home church, St. Luke’s United Methodist.

Judy will also be remembered for her generosity to her church, her friends, and her family. She took great care in choosing gifts for her loved ones and especially enjoyed selecting and giving presents to children on her church’s annual Christmas Angel Tree (she always took at least two angels). Whatever was being collected at church, she was always sure to add to the donation box.

Beyond her musical talents and generosity, Judy’s care for others was without measure. She was a deacon at Broadmoor Christian Church and faithfully cared for her “flock” until the closing of her church. She was quick to answer a phone call from anyone who might need her ear, and prior to her mobility issues, frequently shared her cooking talents through cakes, pies, and casseroles. Even during her illness and hospitalization, Judy consistently asked if each person visiting her was okay.

Left to cherish Judy’s memory is her loving husband, Bobby Williamson; daughter, Michele Hammonds and husband, John; son, Steven Broomfield and wife, Lisa. Her beloved grandchildren include Sarah Hammonds, Kelcy Hammonds, Gracie Broomfield, Allison Broomfield, and Brandon Broomfield. Judy was preceded in death by her sister, Elaine Sistrunk and will be dearly missed by her surviving sister, Ellen Nicholson and husband, Earl. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews who loved their Aunt Judy.

Friends are invited to attend a “Celebration of Judy’s Life” to be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 29, 2023 at St. Luke’s UMC, 6012 Youree Dr. in Shreveport. Leading the service will be the Rev. Andrew Goff.
