Judith received her Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of West Florida, and she went on to be a highly respected elementary school teacher. She was an avid member of the Girl Scouts and an enthusiastic supporter of local projects, including Rails to Trails and beach preservation. She was a passionate guardian of family history, a relentless champion of the underdog, and a generous spirit to all who were privileged to know her.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Eleanor Jernigan; and her sister, Donna Sue Jernigan.

She is survived by her loving husband, Roy Michael Duren; daughter, Mary Veronica Duren; son, Grant Ellis (Claire) Duren; grandchildren, Ava Simone Kennedy, Alijah Jerome Kennedy, Hewitt Hays Duren and Clark Ellis Duren; twin sister, Jena Jernigan Newell; and brother, James Jernigan.

A visitation followed by a brief service in celebration of her life will take place at 5:30 p.m., on Friday, August 9, 2019, at the First United Methodist Church of Milton, Florida.
