Judy Jones was an organizer, the type of person who, no matter what activity she tried, she gave it direction and energy and polish. She did it in business, in public service, at her church and, late in life, in assisting at a retirement center and a hospice.
Former Gov. Zell Miller admired Jones' organizational skill and made her his front-office manager. As "the first person visitors saw when they came to see me and the last person when they left," Miller said, "she made a good impression both ways." Later, he noted, Jones excelled at public relations work for the HOPE scholarship program.
"Judy was a lovely person in every way," Miller concluded.
Judy Holt Jones, 81, died following a stroke Monday at her Atlanta home. Her memorial service is 2 p.m. Sunday, June 29, at Peachtree Christian Church. Wages & Sons Funeral Home, Stone Mountain Chapel, is in charge of arrangements. Read the news obituary
