Judy had a passion for her career as a stockbroker associate. She dedicated herself to providing excellent service to her clients and was well respected.Outside of work, Judy led a fulfilling life filled with various hobbies and interests. She found solace and inspiration as a member of Good News Ministries in Staunton. Her faith played an integral role in her life and gave her strength during challenging times. She also had a beautiful singing voice. She shared this talent by actively participating in the church choir.One of Judy's beloved pastimes was being an avid E-Bay user. She had a keen eye for finding unique items and enjoyed both buying and selling online. Her collection of yard spinners was truly remarkable; so much so that she became affectionately known as the "Spinner Lady."She is survived by the love of her life, her loving husband of forty-three years, John Edgar Raines; her brothers, Christopher L. Brown and Matthew Carl Brown; her sisters, Janelle S. Baker and her husband, John, Donna May Sapp, Cheryl Brown Betts, and Lynnette Jean Modlin; her nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly; and her sweet dog, Jennifer.
