Julia (Judy) Bagwell, 72 of Knoxville went home to be with her Lord September 12, 2017. She passed away at home with her loving family and friends around her. Judy was born December 18, 1944 in Kingsport, TN. She is preceded in death by the love of her life the Rev. Morris Bagwell. Parents Robert and Leathie Bowman, brothers Dewey, Robert (Bob), and James Bowman. Sisters Goldie Wills, Gearline Eastwood, and Sarah Ruth Pruett.
She is survived by her daughter Lora Trent of Knoxville; daughter and son-in-law Lakieta and Jamie Graves; grandsons Erik and wife Danielle Trent, of Jefferson City and Ben and wife Natalie Bagwell of Knoxville; great granddaughter Kenzli Mae Trent; sisters Dorothy Dodson of Rogersville; Areatha Pratt of Church Hill; Sandra Lawson of Kingsport; brother Geronia and wife Christine Bowman of Sarasota, FL as well as many nieces and nephews.

Whether it was greeting guests at her church, cooking, or playing the piano and singing for worship, Judy lived to serve Christ and others. Judy loved her family with that same servant's heart and was affectionately known by them as "Mom Mom". Her home was always open for food and fellowship. The love she had for family overflowed to her church family, as well as the life-long friends she made over the years. Everyone was welcome at Mom Mom's house.

The life she lived here on Earth will have an eternal impact on countless others, both locally and around the globe. The love for her Lord lead her to missionary work in Turkey, South Africa, Poland, Italy, Greece, and Croatia.

The family will receive friends at Berry Lynnhurst Funeral Home, 2300 Adair Drive, Knoxville, TN on Friday, September 15 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. A Celebration of Life service will be held at 7:00 pm in the chapel with Rev. Dr. Phil Nordstrom officiating. Interment in Lynnhurst Cemetery will be on Saturday, September 16 at 1:00 pm.
