In loving memory of Virginia Hudson (nee McDowell), born on June 9, 1948, to Goldie Burl and Harry Oliver McDowell. Virginia peacefully passed away on Monday, July 24th, 2023. She leaves behind a profound legacy and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Virginia is survived by her devoted husband of 50 years, Paul Thomas Hudson Jr.; her two loving children, Mark Thomas Hudson and Kristen Hudson Nichols; her son-in-law, Nic Nichols; her daughter-in-law, Laurie Hudson; her two cherished grandsons, Ethan and Brandon Hudson; and her younger sister, Joan McDowell Geisler.
Virginia's life was intertwined with the gift of music from an early age. She was a talented musician, playing the piano professionally since the age of 13, captivating audiences with her melodies throughout her life. As the musical director, organist, and choir director at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, she brought joy and inspiration to the hearts of many.
Her passion for music extended beyond the stage, as she shared her knowledge and expertise by teaching piano to others. Her retirement from teaching marked the end of a remarkable career that touched countless lives.
Above all, Virginia will be remembered for her kindness, gentleness, and her unconditional love for her family. Her warm and caring spirit made everyone around her feel cherished and appreciated.
As we bid farewell to Virginia, we celebrate the beautiful memories she leaves behind and the enduring impact she had on the lives of those fortunate enough to know her. May her music continue to resonate in our hearts, and may her legacy of love and devotion serve as a guiding light for generations to come.
