WILLIAMSBURG — Judith “Judy” Davis Angles, 79, unexpectedly died Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020, at Riverside Hospital. She was born Nov. 25, 1940, in Grundy.

Judy graduated from Graham High School, Bluefield; Bluefield College; and attended Concord College. Judy worked for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Richmond, for several years. She later became the H.R. director for the family-owned business. She was adored by her employees, as she was genuinely interested in their families and their well-being, offering a helping hand anytime they faced hardships.

She served multiple times as a board member of the Queens Lake Community Association. She also served as the director of the Queens Lake Clubhouse, responsible for the social events. Judy loved planning and hosting a party. She was well known for the clam chowder she prepared each year for the Queens Lake Sea Food Feast.

Judy loved traveling with family and friends. She checked off the last place on her bucket list this past fall by visiting Iceland. In recent years, she loved spending time with her grandchildren who affectionately referred to her as Nanny. Judy also enjoyed playing bridge with her friends, and reading; she would sometimes read multiple books each week.

Judy met her husband, Gordon, as a sophomore in high school and married when a freshman in college. Gordon always contributed what business success he achieved to Judy, as she was always supportive and a driving force in the business.

Anyone who knew Judy appreciated her frankness. She was never one to mince words; you knew exactly where you stood with her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Cecil and Pearl Davis; and son, Michael Kevin.

She is survived by her husband, Gordon; brother, Darrell Davis of Richmond; daughters, Heather, and her husband, Tedd, of Atlanta, Kimberly, and her husband, Ray, of Williamsburg; grandchildren, Sarah (Ethan) of Williamsburg, Hannah (Travis) of Northern Virginia, and Gordon and Elle of Atlanta; and three great-grandchildren, Charlie, Henry and Eloise West of Williamsburg.

Judy was a longtime, active member of the Williamsburg United Methodist Church.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the family will be planning a memorial service to celebrate Judy’s life at a future date.

Memorials may be made in Judy’s name to the charity of your choice or to Judy’s favorite charities, Hospice House of Williamsburg & Support Care of Williamsburg or Child Development Resources.
