Judy Kern Obituary

It is with profound sadness and a deep sense of loss that we announce the

passing of Judy Lynn Kern, affectionately known as Nana, on March 30, 2024, in

Ashland City, Tennessee. Judy was born on September 4, 1958, in Bowling Green,

Kentucky, and her presence enriched the lives of all who knew her.

A paragon of virtue and a beacon of love, Judy graced this world with her

kindness and warm spirit. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, a caring

sister, and a faithful friend whose generosity knew no bounds. Judy took great

pleasure in life’s simple joys—her garden, where she spent countless peaceful

hours tending to her flowers with a big glass of sweet tea – it was her place her

place of refuge and beauty. She also enjoyed pampering her beloved dogs: Daisy

and Star and listening to her favorite music which included Elvis, Conway Twitty,

and her favorite gospel songs. She also loved watching shark movies, shopping,

and eating out while spending time with her family.

Judy's love for her family was the core of her existence. She instilled in her

children and grandchildren the values of compassion, dignity, and respect. Judy’s

memory will be cherished and kept alive by her daughters, Somer Beech (Jimmy

Beech) and Dayna Cothran (Michael Cothran), her son Jarred Kern (Ashley Briggs

Kern), her brother Richard Devore (Tammy Devore), her sister Teresa Peal, and

her treasured grandchildren, James, Trey, Taylor, Michael Jr, Kalynn, and William.

She was predeceased by her loving mother, Carolyn "Ann" Stuard, and her

devoted husband, Jackie Kern, whose companionship and love provided her with

many years of happiness.

In accordance with Judy's wishes, she will be cremated and her ashes will be laid

to rest next to the serene waters of the Tennessee River, alongside her beloved


husband, Jack. There will not be a formal funeral service; instead, Judy's life will

be honored through the memories and stories shared by her loved ones.

Let us hold Judy in our hearts and remember her for her laughter, her nurturing

spirit, and the profound impact she made on all who were privileged to know her.

May she rest in peace, and may her legacy continue to inspire and guide us. And

below was her favorite bible verse.

Psalm 23


The Lord is my Shepherd. I will have everything I



He lets me rest in fields of green grass. He leads me

beside the quiet waters.


He makes me strong again. He leads

me in the way of living right with Himself which brings honor to

His name.


Yes, even if I walk through the valley of the shadow of

death, I will not be afraid of anything, because You are with me.

You have a walking stick with which to guide and one with which

to help. These comfort me.


You are making a table of food ready

for me in front of those who hate me. You have poured oil on my

head. I have everything I need.


For sure, You will give me

goodness and loving-kindness all the days of my life. Then I will

live with You in Your house forever.
