Judy Carole Brock was born May 20, 1958 in Bainbridge, GA, the daughter of Rufus and Eloise Scott Brock. She was a graduate of Bainbridge Christian Academy and furthered her education at Young Harris College and the University of Georgia where she majored in history. She married Andy Bell on June 23, 1995 and together they enjoyed traveling to various places across the United States. Included in their travels were numerous National Peanut trips. Judy loved working alongside Andy educating people on the uses and benefits of peanut products.
Judy had a strong love for literature and was an avid reader. She was a member of a book club along with several of her closest friends.
