Judy Ann Falls, 71, of Pleasant Valley, Virginia, died April 2, 2023, at her home after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was born July 12, 1951, in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and was the only child of the late Jesse and Dorothy Simmons Nelson.
Mrs. Falls was employed by Otterbein United Methodist Church for 47 years and was still working there until the time of her passing. She had built many special relationships during her time there. She regularly attended Grottoes Church of Christ. She also enjoyed attending Brandywine Christian Church.
She was a lover of cats. There was never a shortage of them at the home. Any stray who showed up there would have a forever home. She also enjoyed traveling with her daughter. They had been on numerous trips to Europe, many cruises and countless Elvis shows. They both had a love of all things Elvis and were lucky enough to be able to attend shows and events all over the country. She always had a special place in her heart for West Virginia. She enjoyed spending as much time as she could at the family home there.
She was united in marriage on April 5, 1969, to Melvin Falls, Jr. who survives.
Also surviving are a daughter, Menika Falls. Considered part of the family was Michael Mason whom she referred to as her “son.”
The family would also like to thank Eli and Sarah Williams for going above and beyond to help make her final days so special. Those will always be special memories the family has to cherish.
All services will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to one of her favorite charities, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or Cat’s Cradle.
