Judi was born on June 16, 1947, and passed away on April 18, 2018. She was a member of Airline Baptist Church in Bossier City, The Mother’s Club of Bossier City, the 65’ers, and a long-time local Pokeno Group. Judi received her Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education (English) at LSU with a Spanish minor in 1969. Her 33 year career in law enforcement was a source of pride with her final title as Supervisor of the Clerical Staff and Grant Officer.

Dison BCPD (1998).
She is preceded in death by her husband, Allan Michael Moraw (1994); mother, Willie B Pounds Williams (2002); and father, Charles Ray Williams (2004). Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Tamara Norman Toney and husband Doyle Toney, Jr. and their children, Cheyenne Nicole (19) and Presley Cole (12); daughter, Ashley Moraw Jackson and husband Derrick Jackson and their children Katelyn Michelle (8) and Elijah Stevens (3); step-daughter, Jennifer Moraw Puyear and husband Michael Puyear and their children, Emily Catherine (16) and Carson Joseph (10); sister, Marsha Welborn and husband John Welborn; niece, Alexa Wingerter and husband Philip Wingerter and their children, Henry Philip (2) and Collins Claire (4 mos); niece, Rachael Duris and husband Matthew Duris; sister-in-law, Carol Paga and her children; along with her dog, Brody; and countless beloved family and friends.
The family would like to extend a very special thanks to the Bossier City Police Department Honor Guard, their Airline Baptist Church family for all the meals provided, and the nursing staff of Promise Hospital.
“Judi Williams Moraw came of age along the bayous of small-town south Louisiana on family land surrounded by relatives. Cousins were playmates. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles were babysitters. Judi’s childhood in Lee’s Creek, just outside Bogalusa, LA, instilled in her a deep love of family and family history – one that will be carried on by all who knew her.”
