BATH — Judith Catherine Hudson, 67, died on March 12 at her home surrounded by the love of her family.
She was born on Oct. 21, 1944, to Irving and Matilda Layton.
She married her best friend and soul mate, David Earl Hudson, in Bath in 1963. She worked at Grand City for three years until their closing, but continued to go out to lunch with her colleagues from there quite often. Of all her jobs, being “Nana” was her favorite and she loved her grandchildren very much and took great pride in them.
Hudson was a very talented woman who enjoyed making crafts, cooking and being a seamstress. She adored birthday parties with her sisters and playing cards and bingo with her friends and family. She always found the good in people, was quick witted and had a smile that could light up a room. She could always make someone laugh no matter the circumstance.
She is survived by her best friend and husband of 48 years, David Earl Hudson; sons Tim Hudson and his wife, Cindy, of Windsor and their children, David and his fiancee, Jem, Kaci and her fiance, John, Jacob and Jared, Todd Hudson and his wife, Insook, of Bremen and their daughters, Jennifer and Jessica and Tory Hudson, of Whitefield; sisters Mary Bowen of Brighton, Mass., Betty Baker and her husband, Bruce, of Newcastle, Peggy Hartley and her husband, Gary, of Bath, Leah Lawrence and her husband, Norman, of Topsham, Ellen Brewer and her husband, Bob, of Bath; brother, John Layton of Wiscasset; aunt Leah Coleman of Bath; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister, Theresa Fitzgerald, as well as her parents, Irving and Matilda Layton.
The family would like to thank the nurses at Parkview Adventist Hospital.
Visiting hours and a funeral service were held March 16 at the David E. Desmond & Son Funeral Home, 638 High St., Bath.
Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of choice in Hudson’s name.
