Family hour will be held from 6:00 - 8:00 on Thursday at Rock Harbor Church in Ravia. Judy Kay Gray was born on July 7, 1954 in Roswell, New Mexico to parents Haskell Gray and Lena Williams Gray. The family soon afterward moved back from New Mexico to the southern Oklahoma area when Judy was a small child, and they eventually settled in the Tishomingo area. Judy attended school in the Tishomingo School System as a child, and she later graduated with the Tishomingo High School senior graduating class of 1973. Judy continued living with her parents in Tishomingo until 1980. On April 6th of that year she married the guy that had captured her heart six years before, Jonathan Smith, who was the absolute love of her life. Jon and Judy celebrated their forty first wedding anniversary this past April. The two of them had three children, Misty, Jeremiah and Linzy who all attended and graduated from Tishomingo High School as well. Judy was nothing short of a fantastic mother to her children and raised them all with the utmost of love and the guidance of her favorite book – the Holy Bible. Her love for her children and later grandchildren was unmatchable. Her most favorite thing to do was to spend time with them, be involved in all of their activities and celebrations – and all in all – just having her precious babies with and around her as often and much as she could. Judy was a family person at heart and thoroughly enjoyed being with her parents, brothers and sisters and other relatives at every opportunity presented her, and absolutely loved it when they could all get together for holidays and family events. Judy was right alongside her husband in pastoring Rock Harbor Church of Ravia, an independent Pentecostal church that was founded by the two in September of 1997, and has continued to be a thriving church to date. She was a most anointed prayer warrior and the Spirit of God seemed to rest upon her in countenance and strength. The love that emitted from her was radiant, and the presence of the Lord in her life was most visible when one happened to be in her presence. Many people who had the privilege of meeting and being around Judy have remarked on what a wonderful spirit this lady had about her. Everyone in Rock Harbor Church loved this lady - and this lady loved them! She loved reading her bible, praying and going to church. If Judy ever prayed over you – you knew you had been prayed over – because you could feel the effect! Judy lived her life as a mother and homemaker, and that was plenty good enough for her. She was one more awesome cook and could come up with some of the tastiest dishes, many of her own creation – that left a person coming back for more. But Judy’s main interest and desire was just loving her husband and family, and spending time with them. This more than special wife, mom, sister, grandma (better known by the grandkids as Nana), as well as relative and friend was a caring, giving, devoted and loving lady. In the late evening hours of this past Monday, August 9th, 2021, Judy left her husband Jonathan’s arms and departed this life at their home in Ravia – after living upon this earth for 67 years, 1 month and 2 days - and made her eternal entry into the glory of heaven. Preceding her in death are both of her parents, Haskell and Lena Gray; two brothers John Gray and Joe Gray; two sisters Betty Senterfiet and Sharon Anzuldua; and a nephew Jonathan Anzuldua. Surviving Judy today are her husband Jonathan of the home in Ravia; a son Jeremiah Smith and wife Teresa of Sulphur; two daughters Misty Hinton and husband Tanner of Mill Creek, and Linzy Officer and husband Cody of Vale, Oregon; also a brother Garvin Gray of Tishomingo; two sisters Joyce Evelyn Standifer of Broken Arrow, and Carolyn Needham and husband Ron of Coleman. Judy also prided over all of her grandchildren, those being: granddaughters Haven, Embyr and Ryden Hinton, Haelyn Smith, and Makayla Officer; grandsons Maddux Thompson, Zale and Zaden Hinton, and Nathan and Caleb Officer. And of course nephews, nieces, other family members - and all of the Rock Harbor Church family. Judy was a loving and cherished part of her family. She was a true example of the love of Christ, she was a person of genuine compassion, a precious mother and grandmother to her children and grandchildren, and a wonderful and loving wife to her husband Jon. There are simply no words that could ever express how much she is going to be missed.
