INFORMATION CONCERNING BURIALS FOR ALL VETERANS

We would like to inform our families that anyone who is a Veteran or have a family member who has served in the military and would like to be laid to rest at Maryland State Veterans Cemetery, a DD214 Form is necessary. The DD214 form shows the Branch of Service, Identificaton Number; as well as Status of Discharge.

If your loved one does not have DD214, please see attached link for acquiring DD214 in advance www.dd214.us/methods.html If you have your DD214 form available please contact the Veterans cemetery of your choice directly to pre register for Interment. A Pre-interment Program is available for veterans to indicate their desire to be buried in one of the state’s cemeteries. On a pre-need basis this Program provides initial eligibility for burial. Please note that a pre-approved interment letter does not finalize eligibility for burial in a Maryland Veterans Cemetery. The MDVA reserves the right to confirm final eligibility for burial at the time of death. To apply complete the Pre Interment Application and mail to the MDVA Cemetery Program or take to the Maryland Veterans Cemetery where interment is desired.


*Effective Immediately, the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Cemetery and Memorial Program does not have a Service Verification Specialist. This courtesy will no longer be provided by the department and verification of service will be the responsibility of the surviving family or their designated representative.

Judy Kaye Proctor


Judy Kaye Proctor was born on June 4, 1953, in DC General hospital to Helen Antionette Jones. She fell asleep in death on December 26, 2021.  Judy was educated in the Prince George’s County School system. She started working right out of school at many establishments. But most notably at Circuit City for 23 years. During her time there, she was a manager to many teenagers from various Kingdom Halls who affectionately referred to her as “mom”. She also won many awards including a trip to the Bahamas because of her excellent work. On May 29, 1984, Judy married the love of her life, Joseph Darrell Proctor, and was happily married for 37 years. From that union, they had two sons Eric and Kenny whom she loved dearly. She also had four grandchildren, Dessie, Arica, Angel, and Jo-Jo; whom they affectionately called Nanna. They were her pride and

joy. She was always ready to pull out her phone and share pictures

of them. Judy had many interests and talents. She was a great seamstress and she loved to fish—a love she inherited from her mom Helen Jones. She so enjoyed the many fishing boat excursions she went on with her family and friends along the east coast. She also loved going “thrift store hopping”. She became quite the collector—

sharing many of her finds with family and friends. She loved to

travel whether it was long vacations with Darrell and his family or

taking car rides with the grandkids which often ended up at

Friendly’s to get Judy’s favorite sandwich, the Fisher-Ma-Jig.

Judy was a great cook. She had many special dishes, such as her

corn pudding and blueberry dump cake that she would prepare for

family and friends. She and Darrell many times would deliver them

to their homes. In fact, she was helping others right down to the

end with words of consolation, thoughtful gestures, or providing a

hot meal. Most of all, Judy loved worshipping Jehovah God. She dedicated her life and became a baptized servant of His in 1971. She enjoyed telling others about God’s purposes along with her grandmother, Helen Jenifer, her sister Delores Davis, and many other

relatives. She also enjoyed attending her bible meetings and

traveling to conventions many times with Darrell, her sons, or riding

with friends Sterling and Beverly Taylor, and Joy Wills.

Judy leaves to cherish her memory her husband Joseph Darrell

Proctor; her sons Eric Jones and Kenneth Proctor; sisters Delores

Davis and Faye Void (John); brothers James “Jimmy” Jones and

Nathan Jones (Anna); daughter-in-law Leann Jones; her

grandchildren Desiree “Dessie”, Arica, Angel, and Joseph Jr.

“Jo-Jo”; a devoted niece Wendy Johnson; cousins Joyce

Cobey, Janice Brooks, and Audrey Feggins; mother-in-law

Jacqueline Proctor; sisters-in-law Yolita Washington (Floyd) and

Alethea Wimbush (Zachary); a dear friend Maxine Pinkney whom

Judy affectionately called “little sister”; and a host of other relatives

and friends. Judy was proceeded in death by her grandmother Helen Jenifer; mother Helen Jones; aunt Erma Dodson; nephew Timothy Jay

Christian; father-in-law Joseph Proctor (Joe-Joe); brother-in-law

Odell Davis; sister-in-law Johnie Mae Jones; and her dearest friend

Thelma Pinkney whom she affectionately called “Birdie"
