Lillie Mae (Russell) Hudson was born November 8th, 1938, in Marion, Alabama to the late Arthur, Sr. and Nancy (Wyatt) Russell. Peacefully, she went home to be with the Lord, Friday, June 25, 2021.
Lillie moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana in February 1960. She united with Charlie Lee Hudson, of Uniontown, Alabama, and together they raised three daughters. Charlie and Lillie shared a very special bond; when you saw one, you saw the other. They were always together – they were inseparable.
She joined Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in 1969, under the leadership of the late Reverend McKinley Kizer, Sr., serving as Sunday School Teacher, Gospel Choir President, Church Secretary, and Pastor Aide President. Currently under the leadership of Pastor James W. Kizer, she served faithfully for many years as Missionary Society President. Most importantly, Lillie loved the Lord and served Him whole-heartedly. She expressed His goodness with family, friends, and anyone she encountered.
Lillie had a passion for cooking, and she loved sharing her food with others. She was employed as a cook at Crowhaven Nursing Home, GTE Phone Company, and finally, retiring from Interactions Consumer Marketing, as a Food Demonstrator in 2015. Her hobbies included: fishing, bowling, watching political news, planting and gardening, watching and attending sporting events, and hosting and attending family gatherings. Above all, Lillie will be remembered as a very generous, loving and kind person.
Lillie leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Charlie Hudson, daughters: Carol and Rozlynn Russell, and Patsy Brewer, siblings: Annette Stewart, Lee Andrew Russell and Rosetta Thomas, grandchildren: De’Onte, Darnell, David, and Faith Brewer, Cameron and Cameosis Williams, Jarmarqus and De’Mante Russell-Dobine, nine great-grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, son, Jerald, siblings: Arthur, Willie Albert, Joe Earl, Lee Curtis, Margaret, and Bertha Russell, and Bernice Turner.
Gone from us for now, she has reunited with her loved ones in heaven.
