On Thursday, June 2, 2016, God’s angels sounded the trumpet and welcomed Mother Eva Judson into His Kingdom.

Mrs. Eva Inez Judson was born on August 27th, 1938, in Zacchery, Louisiana to Daniel Dunn and Ella Gayles Dunn. Eva was the sixth born of seven children listed here from eldest to youngest: twins Fanny and Dorothy Jane, twins Mack and Mattie, Louise, Eva, and the youngest, Estella. Estella Dunn Boatner, the last remaining of Eva’s immediate family, is here with us today from Louisiana to help us celebrate Eva’s life and to say goodbye to her sister, our dear friend.

Eva was baptized at an early age at Moses Chapel, United Methodist Church in Deerford, Lousianna, which is where her family attended church services for many years.

While living with her family in her hometown of Deerford, Eva met the dapper Louis Judson, who later asked Eva’s father for his daughter’s hand. They were married on June 17th, 1956. While living in Louisiana, they had a son, Melvin, and then in 1957
the family moved west, to California. Their first California home was in Marin City, where daughter Jackie and then twins Kenneth and Kelvin were born. The family became active members of the First Missionary Baptist Church, where for more than 30 years, Mother Eva worked tirelessly serving in the culinary department and also on the Mother’s Board faithfully until this March of 2016.

The family had many friends in the community and socialized often with the Whites, the Fosters and the Jones families during the time the Judson’s lived in Marin City, and later while they lived in San Anselmo. They had many joyous family gatherings where they would play games and enjoyed delicious meals prepared by Eva and her friends.

The two most important things to Eva were her faith and her family. Her children will always remember that their mothers’ kind manner had a way of lifting one’s spirits, even in hard times. She had a quiet playful chuckle she shared generously. All of us who knew her will never forget it. Her church family at the First Missionary Baptist Church, under the guidance of Reverend Rondall Leggett, was her second family where she recognized our Lord Jesus as her guiding light.

Mother Judson leaves behind to treasure her memory; sons Melvin and Kelvin, daughter Jackie, her sister Estella, niece Cynthia Bridges, grandchildren Melvin Jr., Veronica, and Audacity, and many other nieces and nephews. Eva’s husband Louis of 58 years, her son Kenneth, and her grandson Frankie Mead, who left us years ago, will be waving Mother Eva in through Heaven’s Gate.

“A woman of strength and dignity. Her words are wise, and kindness leads her ways. She is loved by all those dear to her.” (Proverbs 31:26-29)
A Home Going Celebration will be held on Monday, June 13, 2016 at First Missionary Baptist Church in Marin City at 10am, Quite Hour will start at 9am. She will be laid to rest at Fernwood Cemetery in Mill Valley, California. Arrangements in the care of Adobe Creek Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 331 Lakeville Street, Petaluma, California
