Judy Ann Carne went home to be with her Lord on Sunday, April 14, 2019, following a massive stroke.

She was born in Niagara Falls, NY on August 7, 1938. She grew up in Charleston, WV and moved to California in 1956 where she met her future husband Bill. They were married June 11, 1961. Following her schooling at Biola University and Bill’s at Moody Bible Institute, they were appointed as missionaries in 1961 by Cross World Mission to Dutch New Guinea (Papua Indonesia) to work with tribal people in the Central Highlands.

In 1975 she was diagnosed with cancer and they, along with their two children, Rachel and Jonathan, returned to the states. Following her surgery, she returned to school and became an Registered Nurse with a specialty in labor & delivery. Bill returned to school and after graduating from Seminary, served as Pastor at two churches in California for 26 years.

They moved to Leland, NC in 2006 and are active at First Baptist Church of Leland teaching Sunday School classes and supervising the Food Bank Ministry. She has taught children for over 50 years.

She is survived by her husband of 58 years; a daughter Rachel of Elmwood, NE with her husband Jeff and their three children Ian, Rose and Colton, and a great grandson Tyger; son Jonathan of Wilmington with wife Michelle and their three children Jacob, Ethan, and Christian; a brother Dr. John Emery of California and many nieces and nephews, as well as countless friends. Her love for Jesus and others was her calling card.

Her funeral service will be at 11:00 am Saturday, April 27, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Leland, 517 Village Rd in Leland followed by interment in the Church Cemetery. Her family will greet friends from 10 to 11 before the service.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you every day! How precious that He took her on the anniversary of His own triumphal entrance to Jerusalem. There is joy in heaven and heaven and Easter have become more precious.

    May you draw closer to God in prayer, James 4:8. May He comfort you in all your trials and know that He is always there, Psalms 55:22. May you all look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise to end all our grief when sickness and death, pain and outcry has finally ceased, Rev 21:4. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

    How I loved this lady. My dear friend. I will never forget our special friendship. Our walks, our tea times, our Bible discussions, our date nights with our husbands. Bill and Judy were precious neighbors. Getting to know you and your family was a special gift. We will miss you Judy.

    To The Family, Mrs Judy Carnes will be missed. She truly cared about people and I enjoyed the conversations we would have on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings at First Baptist Church Leland. Your family is blessed for getting to have her as part of your family. I have been praying and will continue to pray for you all. I look forward to celebrating her life with all of you.

    Judy loved her Lord and had a special gift with working with children. She was a mentor to many and being in her presence was uplifting. Her life reflected all the Fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23. Today she is very much alive talking to her Lord and received a welcome from her cloud of witnesses. At the Judgment Seat of Christ she will hear "Well Done thou Good and Faithful Servant!" Those who she left behind are hurting. In that Great Day of the Rapture God will wipe away every tear. Bill I will lift you up in prayer and anyway I can help I will be there for you.
