Judith Freeman Obituary

We are gathered in the Lord's embrace to honor the life and legacy of Judith Harrington Freeman, known to us affectionately as Judy, who was called home to be with our Heavenly Father on March 19, 2024. Born on August 22, 1951, in the beautiful city of Charlotte, North Carolina, Judy was a beacon of light and a vessel of God’s love throughout her 72 years on this earth. Her journey on this side of eternity ended peacefully in Kentwood, Michigan, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Judy's life was a testament to her unwavering faith and the love she had for her family and friends. She leaves behind her devoted husband, Mitch Freeman, her loving brothers, Johnny and Michael Harrington, along with their caring wives, Pam and Tina. Judy's joy was multiplied by her nephews Steven, Mark, and Scott Harrington, and her niece, Dena Hall. She was also blessed with the wisdom and company of her uncle, Art and Fern Taylor, her aunt and uncle Joe and Debbie Bowman, their daughters, Tracie and Haley, and her local adopted family (Michael, Jennifer, Brady, Sloan and Eden Randville) and a host of cousins from across the globe.

A scholar of the Lord's word, Judy earned her Bachelor of Science in Christian Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and went on to receive a Masters of Christian Education from the University of Phoenix. She carried a 4.0 GPA through all her courses, a testament to her intelligence and dedication.

For years, Judy served as a school administrator and teacher, shaping young minds with patience and love. She also dedicated her time as a community volunteer, a Sunday school teacher, and an English as a Second Language trainer. Her commitment to education and nurturing the spirit of God in others was unwavering.

Judy's interests were as profound as her faith. She began each day with the daily reading of the Bible, drawing strength and wisdom from the scriptures. A passionate historian, she delved into family ancestry, connecting the past with the present. Her love for travel took her to places far and wide, where she embraced different cultures and spread kindness. Judy engaged in politics with a keen mind and a hopeful heart, always advocating for a world that reflected the teachings of Christ.

Her love for children was evident in her involvement with the Children's Christmas shoe boxes, bringing joy to little ones during the season of giving. She also spent countless hours tutoring young people, guiding them with a gentle hand and a sharp intellect. Judy's home was filled with the warmth of her beloved dogs and cats, each one cherished and loved.

Described as loving, faith-filled, and intelligent, Judy's spirit was a guiding star to all who knew her. She embodied the words of the Apostle Paul, who said, "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13). Judy lived by these words, spreading love in every corner of her life.

As we say farewell to our dear Judy, let us remember her smile that could light up the darkest room, her laughter that was a balm to troubled hearts, and her wisdom that was as deep as the roots of ancient oaks. She was a faithful servant, a loving wife, a cherished sister, a beloved aunt, and a treasured friend.

Today, we do not say goodbye but rather, 'Until we meet again.' For we know that in Christ, we are promised an eternal reunion free from pain and suffering. May we carry forward the legacy of Judith Harrington Freeman, honoring her life by living ours with the same love and faith she exemplified every day.

In the grace of God's embrace, we commend our sister Judy, confident that she now rests in the blessed peace of the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
