A native and lifelong resident of Henderson County, she was a daughter of the late Ralph and Flora Barnwell. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Bill Silvers, who passed in 2016 and her brother, Robert Barnwell.

Judy was extremely proud of her family and loved spending time with them, as well as bragging on them. Over the past couple of years, she had become passionate about our local law enforcement and the guys and gals of HCSO. This included helping cook for them, delivering baskets at Christmas, and fervently praying for the men and women protecting our county.
She is survived by her daughters, Shawna Metzker and Brandi Baldwin and her husband, Bryan; grandchildren, Adrian Metzker, Jade Hudgins, Brandon Baldwin and Preston Baldwin; great-grandchildren, Brantlee and Braylee Hudgins.
