Judy Mae Uptigrove

Mabelvale, AR, 1953 - 2022

Judy Mae Uptigrove, 69, of Mabelvale passed away peacefully on Nov. 16, 2022. She was born in Parkdale, Ark., on May 26, 1953.
Judy never met a stranger and was a reliable source of information if you needed to know who was getting married, having a baby or any scandalous activity going on. She loved Jesus, WWE, and most of all her three grandchildren. She was funny, a little crazy at times and man that temper. She might have been quick to anger, but she was even quicker to forgive, and she made everyone feel loved.
She is proceeded in death by the love of her life, James "Jimmy" Uptigrove.
She is survived by her daughter, Crystal Herring of Bryant; three grandchildren, Dahlia Bray, Isabella Herring, and Sam Herring; one sister, Martha Morris of Bernice, La.; and a host of nieces and nephews that loved her dearly.
The family would like to thank the staff of Hickory Heights and Baptist SICU for taking such amazing care of her in the twilight of her life.
A visitation and memorial service will be held at Smith Funeral home in Benton, Ark., on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Alzheimer's Foundation of Arkansas.
