Judy Walters Cox, 77, of St. Pauls, NC died peacefully on Monday, November 27, 2023, at the SECU Jim and Betsy Bryan Hospice Home of UNC Healthcare in Pittsboro, NC with her daughter, Wendy, by her side. She was well-loved and will be missed terribly.
Judy was born in Laurinburg, NC on January 12, 1946, to the late Ralph K. and Jessie Brock Walters. She was a devoted wife of 52 years to Marvin and mother to Wendy, whom she raised with love and devotion in St. Pauls, NC.

In her free time, she enjoyed playing bridge, travelling across the country with friends on bus tours, spending time with extended family on annual beach trips, attending concerts, planting flowers, and reading. She was active in the St. Pauls United Methodist Church and community. After moving to Durham in 2020, Judy enjoyed spending time at the Charles House Eldercare Center in Chapel Hill where she made many new friends and enjoyed days filled with fun activities.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin, and her brothers, RK Walters, Gilbert Walters, and Roger Walters. Judy is survived by her daughter Wendy Cox of Durham.
