Mrs. Judy Carolyn Donegan Wagner, 70, of Woodbury passed away on August 18, 2018 with her family at her side. She was born in Shelbyville, TN on January 10, 1948. Her parents were the late Leaman Donegan and Gladys Marie Allen Donegan. She was also preceded in death by an infant daughter, Elizabeth Wagner.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas Wagner; sons, Chris (Melissa) Wagner of Smyrna and Greg (Amy) Wagner of Woodbury; daughter, Pamela (Jeff) Wagner Stewart of Manchester; sisters, Peggy (Bobby) Snipes of Woodbury and Darlene (Bob) Totty of Readyville; fourteen grandchildren, three great grandchildren and another great grandchild expected soon.
Although she was born in Shelbyville, she and her family moved to Woodbury when she and her sisters were still young. She graduated Woodbury Central High School in the Class of 1966. Not long after graduation, she met her future husband. They were looking forward to celebrating 48 years together in October. She was a devoted wife and mother. Judy joined Tom while he was in the service in West Germany, but while at home in the states, she stayed active with her children's school and church activities. She was a member of Franklin Road Baptist Church in Murfreesboro.
She also enjoyed traveling with her family. Some of the places she enjoyed most were Gatlinburg, Florida, and Colorado. When she was not busy with the kids, she found time to read books on nature and crafts. Christmas was a special time to her and part of her love for it was the image of snowmen. She had an extensive collection of snowmen figurines, which her family lovingly kidded her about. Among her other interests was gardening. Judy also had a deep concern for animals, especially her own pets.
A visitation with the family will be held at Temple Baptist Church, 66 Fairlane Dr. Manchester, TN 37355 on Friday, August 24, 2018 from 2:00-4:30 pm. A service to celebrate her life will follow at 4:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to be given to the Cannon County Humane Society in her memory.
