Judy was born to James Smith and Betty Callaway on May 28, 1952. She attended Goddard High School in Roswell. She worked with the Roswell Independent School District for 23 years in the cafeteria and was lovingly known as “the lunch lady”; a title that she cherished. She enjoyed camping, fishing, watching funny movies, life and laughter with her family. She was very actively involved over many years with AA and NA programs in Roswell, sponsoring many young women and sharing her testimony. She found joy in being part of the Jail Ministry with Church on the Move taking the word of God to those in need.
Judy was blessed with a very loving family. She married her best friend, Albert Lane, on January 22, 1971 in Roswell, NM. Judy and Al have two daughters and five grandchildren alongside many loving friends and church family.
Judy was an encourager of people. She was kind and caring, and always cherished the time spent with her grandkids. She is dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her creator in heaven.
Judy is survived by her husband, Albert; her daughter Jennifer Williams and her husband Nick; her daughter Kimberly Putnam and her husband TJ; her grandchildren Devin Williams, Savannah Lindsey, Koltin Willis, Zander Lucero, Madelynn, Maya, and Keigan McCullough; her sister-in-law; Claudine Davidson and her husband James; three very dear friends, Desmond Williams, Judy Powers, Anna Sanchez and her family.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Mark Andrews and staff at Roswell Medical, the caregivers with Kymera Cancer Center, and the caregivers with Hospice; Glynn Shelton and Andre Hunter.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Jail Ministry at Church on the Move would be greatly appreciated.
Arrangements are under the personal care of LaGrone Funeral Chapel. Online condolences may be made at www.lagronefuneralchapels.com.

In a later interview, Wilks said, “It’s hard to blend in when you’re born to stand tall.”
Keim was asked what separated Wilks from the other eight candidates interviewed for the job.
This in a division that includes Jared Goff, Russell Wilson and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Keim insisted that lack of a quarterback was not a hindrance in the coaching search.
The Cardinals will, the new coach assured, run the ball.
He said the most important thing this week is to show “the type of guy I am.”
Decorated on the field, Mayfield did have some non-playing issues.
That left him wanting to prove that he’s “way more accurate than that shows.”
His big goal for the week, he said: “Prove that I can belong.”
Likewise, the Broncos requested that Mayfield be on the North team.
“If John Elway asks you to be on his team, you don’t say no,” he said.

HONOLULU (AP) — The question was as much rhetorical as it was cynical.
“Do you think guys today believe they could have taken on Tiger at his best?” Kuchar asked.
Besides, what could anyone say?
The question now is whether it’s too late to find out.
Only then will today’s stars get an idea of how they could fare.
Stewart Cink was intrigued by the question.
“The golf world would get a real kick out of it.”
Could they have taken him?
“My self-confidence and self-belief would say, ‘Yes,'” Thomas said.
There are a lot of numbers when it comes to Tiger.
His rate of winning is 9 percent.
But to get just a glimpse of it, would that be asking too much?
He’d like to be part of the next one, especially after watching the last one from home.
“I think that’s something we’re still interested in,” PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said.
So he made a list of why he should be thankful and all the people who have helped him along the way.
