Judith B. Pownall

February 10, 1948 - March 6, 2017

Judi B. Pownall, of Chesapeake, passed away in her home on Monday March 6, 2017.  Judi was born on February 10, 1948 to the late Elmer Ray Blazer, Sr. and Margarette Criddle Blazer.  She grew up in Portsmouth and Chesapeake.  She graduated from Deep Creek High School in 1967.  She was a kitchen designer at Home Depot and Lowes and she also had her own business in Nags Head, North Carolina.

Most important to Judi was her personal life.  No matter how busy she was, she always had time for her family and friends.  She was a devoted and giving friend, always willing to lend a hand and enjoy a good laugh.  At the end of her life, Judi was most proud of being a mother and grandmother. She enjoyed cruising Thrift Shops, collecting porcelain dolls and doing crafts. She had a deep faith and was a believer in Jesus Christ, as her savior.

She was preceded in death by her parents Margarette Criddle and Elmer Blazer Sr., her brother Clint Blazer and her precious son Terry Blazer.  She is survived by her husband Jay Pownall, her son David Ryan Edwards of North Carolina, siblings Donna, Penny, John and “Hot Rod”.  Also left to cherish her memory are 2 grandchildren “Bubba Gump”, Lauren Elizabeth and their mother Connie Peed, one nephew Clint Blazer, one niece Kelly Blazer, god-child Lynn Honeycutt, multiple friends, aunts and uncles.   She especially loved her Aunt Sylvia and Uncle Darrell.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
