On Saturday, July 2, 2022, Judith Ann Carver-Reaume, loving wife, Mother, Grandmother, and soon-to-be Great Grandmother, peacefully passed away.
Judy was born October 15, 1959, in Waynesville, NC to Grady and Peggy (Wright) Carver. She moved to Forks in 1977, with her Mother, Step-Father, and two brothers. She met the love of her life, Louis, at Pay ‘N’ Save Coffee Shop, where Judy was a waitress, and Louis, a regular customer. On April 29, 1978, Judy and Louis Corbin Reaume were married. They raised two children together.
Judy wore many hats throughout her life, waitress, cashier, bartender, EMT, bookkeeper, and working with at-risk youth through Juvenile Services. However, being an involved mom to her children, and later, being her grandchildren’s biggest, and loudest cheerleader, was her brightest and most colorful cap. She was an avid music lover, and collector of all things Elvis Presley. Judy loved her colorful flowers and plants during the Spring and Summer, and enjoyed spending most of her time, outdoors with her family.
She enjoyed fishing, and spending a relaxing day floating the local rivers, in her and her son’s drift boat. Judy loved to decorate for Halloween, and truly enjoyed visiting with all of the Trick-Or-Treaters, while cheerfully passing out full-sized candy bars. As much as she loved Halloween, Christmas was a truly spectacular event in her home. Year after year, Judy and Louis would spend days decorating inside and outside, in anticipation of seeing their grandchildren’s excited faces. She would bring Santa to her house for all children who frequented their home, to have a picture taken with, and receive a candy cane from.
Judy was preceded in death by her Father, Mother, Step-father (Wayne Wood), Grandparents, Winfred and Myrtle Wright, and Best friend and “Partner in Crime”, Lynda Hale. She is survived by her husband, Louis, her two children, Yvonne (Jeremy) Baker. Her son, Quentin Reaume, her grandchildren, Corbin, Joseph, Alaina, Hayden, Mercedes, and numerous other children who lovingly called her, “Gramma Judy”. She is also survived by her brothers, Clinton (Amy) Wood, their children, Tyler and Kadie, and Steven (Shana) Wood, and Steve’s son, Zachary. Along with many Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins on the East Coast.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
