Judy Juanita Dew (76) of Dillon, SC, passed away on December 4, 2023, at Lexington Medical Center after an extended illness. Judy was born on December 24, 1946, in Marion, SC. She was the daughter of the late John Berry (JB) Dew, Jr. , and Juanita Jackson Dew. Judy graduated from Latta High School. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of South Carolina, and because of her love for school, she earned a second Bachelor's degree from Francis Marion University. Judy began her nursing career as an OB-GYN nurse at McLeod Memorial Hospital (or "the Old McLeod Hospital" as people from the Pee Dee area are fond of calling it). Judy remained at McLeod Regional Medical Center for over thirty years. While at MRMC, not only was Judy known for her superior nursing skills, but also for her intelligence, work ethic, and leadership skills. Because Judy possessed these qualities among others, she held the jobs of ER/Trauma nurse, head nurse, nursing supervisor, Director of Surgical Services, and Director of the OR. After over thirty years at McLeod, Judy resigned and became the Director of the OR at MUSC Health Marion Medical Center in Mullins, SC. After several years at Marion Medical Center (MUSC), Judy headed to Kingstree where she ended her fifty-five year career in nursing as the Director of the OR at Williamsburg Regional Hospital. Judy's work ethic was cultivated by her parents and growing up on a farm. Her mother and father worked hard and believed in always putting forth their personal best no matter the job. This hard-work mentality was instilled in Judy at a very young age and became the seed that led to all the successes in her life. If you knew Judy, you knew she was always up for an adventure, and many of her adventures took place in the thousands of books she read. Judy had books everywhere! It didn't matter which room in her home you entered, you would always see a stack of books on tables, shelves, or beside a chair where she was sitting. Judy even kept books in her car and a bag or two in her trunk, usually to pass along to friends and family. In addition to her love for literature, Judy was an avid shopper. One year at Christmas, Judy and her mother left for a marathon day of shopping at the outlets at Myrtle Beach even though Judy's foot was bothering her. She continued to shop the entire day before ending up in the ER later that night where she discovered she actually had a broken foot and was in need of a cast! Judy loved all animals, and horses had to be her favorite. For many years, in addition to nursing, she would train and participate in Racking horse championship shows where she and her beloved Fireball won numerous first place ribbons and championship trophies, including the Raking Horse National Championship. While Judy had many loves, none exceeded her love for people. She adored her family, friends, and coworkers. There was nothing she wouldn't do for those that she loved and anyone in need. It was her nature to put the needs of others above her own, and while her heart may have physically worn out, the love it held for others never waned. For those of us lucky enough to have been on the receiving end of that love, we now carry the best part of Judy--her love--with us. We will miss her beyond words. Judy is survived by her brothers Johnny (Rhonda) Dew and Jody (Wendy) Dew; niece Megan Dew; nephews John Berry Dew, IV, Blake (Nicole) Dew, John Ryan Dew, and Nicholas Dew; great-nieces Kayden Dew and Emma Bley; great-nephews JP Bley and Blaise Dew. Judy is preceded in death by her son, Jimmy Brown, and her canine companion, Stella. Visitation will be Friday, December 8 at 1:00PM at Cooper's Funeral Home located at 209 Black Branch Road, Dillon, SC. Funeral services will begin at 2:00PM at the same location with Chaplain Stephen Shugart officiating. The burial will follow at Greenlawn Perpetual Cemetery located at 1252 SC-57, Dillon, SC. The family would like to take this time to thank Judy's numerous friends that supported and loved her during her extended illness. To her best friend, Jimmy Brown, Sr. , her love for you was extraordinary and unconditional. Thank you for your unwavering support.Show more
