Obituary for Peggy Hudson
Peggy Hudson "did it her way" and abandoned ship on Thursday, May 18th at the home of her sister, Sue Chance, while being comforted by her daughter, Vona Hudson. She was born in Ordway, Colorado Sept. 2, 1935 to Bruce "Scotty" Scott and Ella Winifred "Sally" McDaniel.
In addition to her daughter and sister, she is survived by a brother, David Scott, who resides with his wife of almost 60 years, Lynda Albert Scott, in Sterling, Alaska. Her brother-in-law, Johnny Hudson, his wife, Joann, and their children, Steven and Kelli are long-time residents of San Angelo as is her niece, Julie Snider. Her surviving grandson, Kevin McKerley, lives in Austin with his wife, Sarah, and their son, Henry. In addition, she had a nephew, John, from Idaho, and niece, Jan, who lives in Alaska.
Among other survivors are her four legged child, Rascal, and grand-doggies, Gracie, Pimba, Snickers, Flipper, Zinga, and Zooka as well as a four-legged niece, Goldie. The botanical masterpiece in her back yard hopes to survive her as well.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Lonnie Hudson, and precious nephew, Jim Scott.
In April, she was able to attend a reunion of old friends from her Lake View days, and frail as some of them might be, there was much laughter, teasing, and reminiscing. She was looking forward to attending her Lunch Bunch in May, and hopes both groups will soldier on, carrying on the standard of witty repartee she established.
She was known as "Mrs. Talbot" to many children who attended Lincoln Middle School and Lake View High School. As in all relationships, she was fair, generous, and humorous. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to Meals for the Elderly, Hospice of San Angelo, or your favorite charity.
A memorial will be held Monday, May 29, at 10 am under the pavilion at Civic League Park, home of the International Water Lily Garden. The address is 2 S. Park St. Limited seating will be provided. If you are unable to attend, don’t feel bad. Just share a happy memory of her with someone and be happy. Arrangements are by Shaffer Funeral Home/Sherwood Way.
