Judith Marie Johnston Bowie was called home to be with the Lord on June 17, 2018. Judy is survived by her husband Larry Bowie of Oak Gove, VA; her son Brandon Bowie and wife Jessica of Colonial Beach, VA, and her daughter Whitney and husband Shawn Cannon of Bowling Green, VA. She will be greatly missed by her treasured grandchildren, Brant Bowie, AJ Cannon, Brayden Cannon, and Jamison Cannon; whom she dearly loved and mentored. She is also survived by her mother, Margaret Johnston of Colonial Beach; and sisters Vicki Cooke, Sandy Fudge, and Shirley Walker from Colonial Beach and King George. Her extended family of nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sister-in-law are all recipients of Judy's boundless love and her gift of herself to them. She was preceded to heaven by her father Richard Windsor Johnston.
Judy's professional life was as a registered nurse, graduating from DePaul School of Nursing, but her life work was that of encourager, inspirer, and friend to all who crossed her path. She exemplified the love she knew in Jesus and reflected it onto everyone she met. She was known for her work in the nursing field at the offices of her friends at the Mussey and Sarber medical practice in Fredericksburg, VA; where she worked with empathy and a love that lifted the spirits of countless patients; and her family of co-workers. Beyond her profession, Judy was an ongoing care giver and helping hand to loved ones and perfect strangers alike if they had a need. She will be sorely missed by all she leaves behind, but her impact was profound on all who had the pleasure to know her. May her home coming be even more glorious than expected.
A celebration of her life will be held at Oak Grove Baptist Church, 8096 Leedstown Road, Colonial Beach, VA on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 11:00 am. A reception will immediately follow in the Family Life Center of the church. Burial will follow at 2:00 pm in St. Peter's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Oak Grove Baptist Church in Judy's name, with memo to Operation Christmas Child. This a ministry dear to Judy's heart as she embraced this organization's focus to spread the gospel of Jesus worldwide. Or, a contribution to Mary Washington Hospice would also be a fitting and suitable memorial to Judy as they pour themselves into the work of giving comfort to those in critical need. The family particularly thanks the nursing staff of Mary Washington Hospital who literally rearranged their assignments to care for Judy and her precious friend Terry Bell Moorby, who held her hand tight through it all. Online condolences may be left for the family at www.storkefuneralhome.com.
