Judith Carole Abel Giles

d. December 8, 2021

Judith Carole Abel Giles, age, 84 of Rockwood, passed away on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at Roane Medical Center. She was born on December 28, 1936. Judy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She graduated from Rockwood High School in 1955. She retired from K-Mart as a Human Resource Manager, was a life-long member of the First Christian Church, and an alumnus of the Rockwood 2000 Club. Many of her proudest moments involved spending time with her family and friends, which included camaraderie at class reunions, social events, and card games. She loved cooking for everyone, despite her large family, and she made time for everyone. While the family grieves her loss, they’re choosing to remember Judy in a way that honors her spirit.
