Judith Webb Proctor, age 84, of Wilson, North Carolina passed away on Thursday, June 1, 2023.  The family will receive friends on Monday, June 5 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Joyner’s Funeral Home, 4100 Raleigh Road Parkway, Wilson, NC.  A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, June 6 at 11:00 am at Evergreen Memorial Park, 2800 Nash Street N, Wilson, NC.  Reverend Thomas Ellis will officiate.


She is survived by her son, Chris Proctor and wife, Melissa of Wilson; grandson, Holden Proctor of Wilson; granddaughter, Claire Rose Proctor of Wilson, whom she called “Belle;” sister, Elizabeth (Lib) Moore and husband, Paul, Jr. of Charlotte; brother, Mitchell Webb of Edgecombe County; and sister-in-law, Delta Webb of Edgecombe County; as well as many other nieces and nephews.


She is preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Ralph A. Proctor; her parents, John Wright and Nannie Lee Webb; brothers, John Ledger Webb and Gordon Webb; sister, Eunice Beach and brother-in-law, Jesse; and sister-in-law, Beulah Webb. 


Judy was a graduate of South Edgecombe High School.  She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend who loved everyone deeply.  She was an active member of Good News Advent Christian Church and in the Holden’s Crossroads community during her married life.  Prior to that, she was a member of Webb’s Chapel Baptist Church in Macclesfield, NC.  She retired from Teledyne Thermatics in Elm City, NC.


Judy served as President of the Wilson Woman’s Club from 2016 to 2018.  She enjoyed the fellowship with all the members and with the Club’s fundraising events.  She was on the Wilson County Planning Board and was also a member of the American Legion Auxillary, where she enjoyed volunteering.  Judy was a member of WilMed Healthcare Foundation’s Donor Recognition Society, the Circle of Friends, as she made a contribution in loving memory of her husband, Ralph Proctor to the Rehabilitation Wing of Wilson Memorial Hospital.


Judy loved to cook, participate in church and civic activities, and always remembered her family and neighbors with her special hams and desserts.


She loved her family and her grandchildren, Holden and Claire.  They were her gems, as she would always beam while talking about them.


Judy was the glue that bonded her siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins alike.  One of her nieces named her “Ms. Santa Claus” because of all the joy she would spread each Christmas.  She never forgot a birthday either.  She also remembered her friends and neighbors.  And boy, did she love to shop for all of them… even for their pets!  She also loved going out with her ladies’ group, “Old Farts Having Fun,” on Saturday nights.


She knew everything that was happening in your life.  She generously helped with numerous weddings, parties, showers, and graduation.  Everyone could count on Judy!  As stated in “It’s A Wonderful Life,” “All you can take with you is that which you have given away;” therefore, Judith will be taking much with her, and she will be loved and missed by all.
