Hudson, Kathleen Anne

(nee Snedden)

It is with great sadness that the family of Kathleen (Kay) Hudson announce her peaceful passing at Fairview Manor on August 18, 2017 in her 81st year.  She was the loving and devoted wife and soulmate of Graham Hudson for 59 years.  Kay was the daughter of the late Alex and Leila Snedden of Almonte.  She was the proud mother of Bruce (Elizabeth), Brian (Lynn), Steve (Jane), Dale (Angela) and Donna (Bill) Lemon as well as thirteen grandchildren, Leigh, Dana, Kerin, Sandra, Allison, Andrew, Sara, Melissa, Jared, Cameron, Nicholas, Meg and Ben. Pre-deceased by her brother Earle (Marilyn) Snedden, she will be mourned by her brother Sandy (Marion) Snedden, her sister Beth (Brian) Keating of Kentucky and sisters-in-law Gwen (late Allan) Taylor and the late Marion (Trevor) Hawkins.

Kay was a teacher by profession, first teaching in a one-room country school house and later at Walter Zadow Public School until the first of her five children arrived.  Kay was an avid gardener and the driving force behind Hudson’s Farm Fresh Produce since the 1970’s.  She was also an active and competitive curler and golfer.  The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the staff at Fairview Manor for their compassionate care.
