Obituary

Judy Ruth (Nunn) Newby of San Antonio, Texas was called home to the presence of her Savior on December 21, 2019, a Saturday afternoon enjoyed with her loving family sharing in the blessings of a heritage of faith. She was born to Roy and Brady Nunn on August 12, 1940 in Bastrop, TX. A large and loving family, the youngest girl of 10 children.

A shared Sunday school classroom at the age of 8 blossomed into the marriage of Boyd E. Newby on November 25, 1959. They lived a blessed life full of love and cherished each other daily. Judy is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Boyd E. Newby; daughter, Judilynn (Newby) Sunden (Russell); grandson, Jeremiah Sunden; great-grandchildren, Isabel and Boyd Sunden; brother, David Nunn (Mary Belle); sisters, Gladys Moye, Mary Mercer, and Lela Neidlinger; and brother, Howard Gene Nunn (Sharon). She is preceded in death by her parents Roy & Brady Nunn; brothers, George, Roy and Ronnie Nunn; sister, Louise Foster; and brother-in-Law, Lawrence Foster.

Judy was an entrepreneur alongside her husband Boyd owning and operating Newby's Hairstyling, the first Men's and Women's hairstyling salons in San Antonio. The business they grew together was at the forefront of the fashion industry in San Antonio for over 40 years.

She was a light in the darkness and never met someone that she did not become friends with and show the love of Jesus, she was a shining example of Christ. She really knew how to live and love life. She will be missed beyond measure, but we know she is singing with the angels.

Judy was a 30 plus year member of the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo, working over 20 yrs. alongside Boyd on the Public Affairs Committee. She became a Director of the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo in 1999 and was inducted as Director Emeritus in 2009. She loved and worked tirelessly for the Youth of Texas.
