Obituary

Judith Lynn Currin Wrenn-after a long battle with Alzheimer’s, surrounded by her loved ones, went to be with her Lord and Savior. Born in Angier on December 27, 1940. She was the daughter of the late James Robert (Bob) Currin and Eloise Johnson Currin. Growing up in Buies Creek, NC she was an avid Campbell University Camel fan from the start. As a student there, she met the love of her life and graduated with Bachelors degree in Education. 

The three most cherished parts of her life were her Lord, her family, and her church. She loved the Lord and it showed in everything she did. Always the epitome of a servant’s heart and Southern Lady. 

While she enjoyed traveling with her family, home was where she enjoyed being the most. Her joy was to make her home an inviting place for her husband, children, family, and friends. She made everyone feel special there and enjoyed every minute of it. She served as the “President” of her Sunday School class for many years. The friendships made there were precious to her as they shared their love of Jesus. 

When she met you, she would do so with her lovely southern charm, asking about your family and may even claim kin. To know her was to love her.

Her interest with children started at a young age with her cousins. This love and calling grew as she became a teacher, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She loved her students and always referred to them as “hers.” She was a magnet for little people and this draw was evident until the end. 

Her greatest desire was to have a happy, healthy family. Her legacy will forever be a blessing and a reminder of Christ’s love for us.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years, William (Bill) Parker Wrenn, III; daughters, Elizabeth Wrenn Suttenfield and Amy Wrenn Gregory and husband Dwayne, and son Christopher and his wife Allison. Grandchildren Kelsey Suttenfield Lawhorn (Sam), Olivia Gregory Keel (David), Jacob Gregory (Abigail), Caleb Suttenfield, Sylvia Wrenn, Parker Wrenn, and Isaac Wrenn. Great-grandchildren Avery Keel and Emmett Lawhorn. 

Preceded in death by her parents James Robert (Bob) Currin and Eloise Johnson Currin; her brother, Robert Larry Currin and his wife Peggy; and brother-in-love, Ron Mangum. She is additionally survived by sisters-in-love Millie Wrenn Mangum, Marsha Wrenn Snyder (Kent), and several nieces, nephews, and their children. 

A special thank you to our very special friend, Kerry Kelly. She was Mama’s personal caregiver and companion through the last six months of her declining health. Kerry had her pulse on Mama’s every need and made sure she was comfortable. Kerry’s daughter, Kenzie, was a mini-helper and loved Judy Bug dearly as well. Our thanks will never be enough.

The family would also like to thank Michelle and Janice with Community Homecare & Hospice for their tender loving care of our precious wife and Mama.

A Celebration of her life will be held at Baptist Grove Church on Tuesday, March 3rd at 2:00 PM with Rev. Ben Pearce officiating. A private graveside service will be held at Wake Chapel Cemetery. The family will receive friends in the church fellowship hall Tuesday from 12:30-1:45 PM and other times at the home of her son, Chris Wrenn.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Community Homecare & Hospice, 1231 N. Main St., Lillington, NC 27546.
