Judith A. Prado

November 16, 2022


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Judith A. Prado, 71, on Wednesday November 16, 2022 at her home in Moyock, NC. Judy was born in Portsmouth, Va to Harold L. Bennett and Martha J. Bennett. She was predeceased by her parents, step-father Graham M. Carter Sr., and husband of 49 years, James R. “Jimmy” Prado, Jr.. She is survived by her; 2 sons, Jason Prado (Amie) and Josh Prado (Michelle) all of Moyock, NC; 5 grandchildren, Sierra Krainski (Kenny), Tristan, Seth, Taylor and Alyx Prado and 2 great-grandchildren, Bradley and Clementine; 3 sisters, Jo Bennett (Doug) of Falls Church, VA, Gloria Stevens (Gary) of Kingsville, Ohio and Janet Vann (David) of Portsmouth VA; a brother, G. M. “Rusty” Carter Jr. (Sharon) of Farmville, VA; numerous nieces and nephews and a large extended family. She shared a life-long friendship with childhood friends Becky Ditter (who passed away in March this year) and Frances Matthews Queen of Fort Mills, SC.

Judy graduated from Cradock High School in 1969, where she was a member of the National Honor Society. She worked as the Credit and Customer Service Manager for Chesapeake Regional Healthcare for 34 years before retiring in 2013. She loved everything about the beach, Christmas, scrapbooking, and reading. She had an incredible talent of being able to tell you every President, Vice President, First Lady, what years they were in office, and who they ran against. However, what she loved the most was her family. She loved being with her boys who made her laugh until she cried, spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and talking with all of her siblings every single day. Her family was her everything.

In keeping with her wishes, there will be a Celebration of Life gathering of family and friends on Tuesday, November 22, beginning at 3:00pm at her home.

The family requests donations be made in her memory to either the American Cancer Society or the American Lung Association.
