Judy Ann Koontz, 75, of Mocksville, died at home on Oct. 3, 2021, after several months of declining health.

She was born on July 8, 1946 in Iredell County to the late Everette Ratledge and Janie Walker Koontz. She was a member of Salem United Methodist Church. She graduated from Cool Spring High School in 1964, and attended Appalachian State University.

She started and finished her career at Davie County Hospital, working in the lab for more than 42 years, making many lifelong friends. She was always cheerful and kind to her patients and loved what she did for a living, but her greatest joy was being Aunt Judy to her niece and nephew and especially to her great-nephews and great-niece.

She was also preceded in death by her brother, Bob Koontz.

Survivors: a niece, Molly Ridenhour (Drew) of Mocksville; a nephew, Luke Koontz (Molly) of Nolensville, Tenn.; a sister-in-law, Debbie Koontz of Mocksville; 4 great-nephews and a great-niece, Mack and Wade Ridenhour and Harley, Everett, and Maggie Koontz; and many friends and cousins.
