Judy Garland Futch

August 6, 1938 — November 28, 2023


Judy Garland Zetterower Futch, age 85, passed away on November 28, 2023, surrounded by her loving family at Southern Manor in Statesboro. She was born on August 6, 1938, in Statesboro, GA to Robert and Jewell Hunter Zetterower. With a heart as big as the Georgia sky, Judy dedicated her life to being a homemaker and spreading love and kindness to all those she encountered.

Judy had a personality that radiated warmth and compassion. She embodied generosity and selflessness, always willing to lend a helping hand or give someone the shirt off her back. Her love for people was evident in every aspect of her life. Judy found joy in assisting others and making a positive impact on their lives.

When it came to her hobbies and interests, Judy had a love for the simple pleasures in life. Camping trips with her family provided cherished memories of adventure and togetherness. She also enjoyed the peacefulness of picking up pecans during autumn and took great pleasure in listening to the soothing melodies of bluegrass music.

Judy's family meant everything to her, and she cherished each moment spent with them. She was preceded in death by her beloved parents, as well as her devoted husband of 54 years, Mr. Rufus Futch, and their son Floyd Futch. 

She is survived by her loving son and daughters-in-law, Jake and Kim Futch, along with Lynn Futch; as well as her daughter and son-in-law Miriam and John David Donaldson - all residing in Statesboro. A brother, Owen Zetterower of Statesboro; Judy's grandchildren include Hunter Futch of Brevard, NC; Sally Marie Futch of Statesboro, Lindsay (Matt) Beatty of Savannah; Chad Love (Lexie Monroe) of Meldrim, Madelyn Love, JD Donaldson, Hayden Futch, and Luke Futch, all of Statesboro; many great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and her K9 companion, BiBi
