Mrs. Hudson was born April 27, 1945, in Savannah, to Quinca Conner and Myrtice Anderson Conner. Nothing made her happier than being with her family - her children and grandchildren were her life. Mrs. Hudson really enjoyed writing songs and poems for years. Crafting and making things was something she liked to do. Looking back at her life over the years, her children noticed she had a bit of carpentry skills too. On any given day, she would build a shelf or use boards to make anything she set her mind to – even if it was using a cardboard box. This always made her children smile, seeing her creative mind at work. When she was able, she thoroughly enjoyed shopping at Goodwill and Dollar Tree. Mrs. Hudson was a loving, giving, and overall great mother to her children, and a great friend to all she met. She may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. Mrs. Hudson is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Shelton Hudson; son, Kenny Hudson; and brother, Jimmy Conner.
Mrs. Hudson is survived by her sons, David Hudson (Denise) of Brooklet and Doug Hudson of Statesboro; daughter, Sharon Grigsby (Darrin) of Garden City; sisters, JoAnne White (Bobby) of Statesboro and Betty Woodward of Toccoa; ten grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews, and many friends.
Chapman Funeral Home of Swainsboro was in charge of arrangements.
