Marjorie Dianne Hudson

November 16, 1941 — October 8, 2022

On Saturday, October 8, 2022, in the comfort of her home and with family at her side, Marjorie Dianne Hudson slipped quietly away and was reunited in Heaven with her beloved late husband, Wayne. Born in 1941 in Greensboro, Georgia, Dianne was the daughter of the late Clarence and Sara Hayes. They moved to Warner Robins where she later met the love of her life, Wayne Hudson; he saw her at school and immediately told a friend she was the girl he would marry. In August of 1959, after her graduation from Warner Robins High School, he did just that and so began a marriage that would last almost 56 years and give them three beautiful daughters, Anitra, and then twins, Wendy and Cindy.

Dianne was a beloved wife and a hands-on mother with a sweet, caring spirit. She was devoted to family. A talented and creative artist, she enjoyed drawing and painting and passed this on to three generations of girls, teaching her daughters, granddaughters, and great-granddaughters all by the age of 3. Like their mother, the girls ended up in art shows at early ages. She was supportive of any endeavor her children undertook, attending all their events. Witty and stylish, Dianne was a shopper who enjoyed trips with friends and family; Hilton Head was a frequent and favorite destination. She loved being with others whether going to art shows, shopping, or doing anything involving sharing time. She was a great cook, and early on she passed this to one of her three daughters, Anitra; the twins admit they did not inherit this talent! A strong Christian, Dianne was a caretaker at heart, her family was blessed by this example. Her friends remember her as the definition of what a Christian should be, and her son-in-law Casey defined her as a saint. She was generous with her time, and often volunteered with art projects for school, church, Bible school, and pediatrics at the hospital. She loved animals and plants and, in an unusual twist, could routinely tell you what type of plane was flying overhead. Dianne was the epitome of what a lady should be, she was a Christian woman who loved freely, was soft-spoken while having a backbone of steel, a great sense of humor, and a huge heart. She was a retired Item Manager at Robins AFB and was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Warner Robins. She more recently attended Trinity Baptist Church in Centerville.

Preceding her in death were her husband, T. Wayne Hudson, and parents, Clarence and Sara Hayes.

Dianne is survived by an adoring and grateful family, including her daughters, Anitra Gavin, Warner Robins; Wendy Martin (Casey), Macon; Cindy Hudson, Macon; grandchildren, Amanda Gavin Resta (Gary), San Angelo, TX; Lily Gavin, Warner Robins; and great-granddaughters, Emma and Anna Resta, San Angelo.
