Judith "Judy" Arlene Lockwood

October 14, 1942 — January 23, 2024

Warner Robins

Judith “Judy” Arlene Lockwood, 81, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 23, 2024. 

Judy was born on October 14, 1942, in Pawnee City, Nebraska to the late Hollis and Louise Wolf.  She grew up in both Dillard and Davenport, Nebraska, graduating from Davenport High School in 1960. During her formative years, she was a drummer, played volleyball, was involved in swimming, and worked as a lifeguard. From there, she went to Peru State Teacher’s College where she graduated with a degree in Home Economics. This set her career in motion as a Home Economics teacher in Beatrice, Nebraska, where she met Bob. After Bob joined the United States Air Force, they were married, began a family and stationed at the following locations: Vance Air Force Base, Offutt Air Force Base, Anderson Air Force Base in Guam, Lowery Air Force Base, and finally landing at Robins Air Force Base in 1975. 

Once the family settled in Warner Robins, Judy continued her career at Sacred Heart Catholic School, followed by Elberta Elementary, and Northside Elementary, teaching first grade as well as reading recovery until her retirement in 2003. A devout Christian her entire life, Judy was a longtime, faithful member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. There, she was choir director, played the organ for 48 years, became an elder, volunteered for the church’s Backpack Buddies program, volunteered at vacation bible school, and was a member of the Westminster Women’s Association. She also enjoyed volunteering for the soup kitchen at First United Methodist. 

Judy was involved in the singing group, “We Three”, which performed all over middle Georgia; singing also sparked her love of listening to gospel groups such as The Gaithers and The Cathedrals. In her free time, she was an avid reader, loved knitting; often making prayer shawls, and volunteering wherever she was needed. Her presence will be deeply missed by those she held dear. 

In addition to her parents, Judy was preceded in death by her brother, Dick Wolf. 

Her memory will forever be treasured by her husband of 59 years, John Robert “Bob” Lockwood of Warner Robins; children, Taunia Brown (Chris) of Warthen and Tracey Jackson of Fairburn; grandchildren, Raisha Fiveash, Dylan Fiveash (Lauren), Robbie Fiveash, Evyn Jackson, and Olivia Jackson; great-grandchildren, Kaden, Kaliana, and Peyton; and sister, Linda Bower of Superior, Nebraska.
