Judy Bledsoe, wife of retired TBFA president, dies after long battle with cancer

Judy Bledsoe — wife of Barry Bledsoe, retired president of The Baptist Foundation of Alabama — died June 26 after a battle with cancer.

She supported her husband through 20 years at the helm of TBFA until he retired in 2021. Their son, Rodney, now serves as TBFA’s director of ministry engagement.

Bledsoe and her husband were longtime members of First Baptist Church Montgomery where she was actively involved in choir and missions. She was an avid painter and in her younger years sang with her sisters as the Reed Sisters.

She is survived by her husband of nearly 51 years; sons Dennis, Chris and Rodney; and eight grandchildren.
