Obituary for Lorely A. Hudson
In Loving Memory of
Lorely A. Hudson
11/15/1941 to 11/15/2019
Our beloved mother Lorely A. Hudson, age 78, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 15, 2019, her birthday. She was born in 1941 in Ryde, Isle of Wight, England to Hilda and Les Payton.
She grew up on the island, which is off the southern coast of England, playing on its many beaches and promenades along the shoreline. She had one brother Brian and three sisters, Joyce, Eileen and Valerie. She treasured memories of “her island” and its quaint villages and cobblestone streets and shared countless stories of mischief and fun.'
Lorely worked at many professions throughout her lifetime. She began working as a teenager, alongside her mother in England in restaurant service. She bravely left England at 19 years old to become a nanny to a family with six children, in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, outside Philadelphia. She kept in contact with the children of that family throughout the years and through social media. She worked in dry cleaning, had numerous office positions and managed a commercial cleaning company in Sylvania, Ohio for many years as well.
Lorely loved music, especially the piano, and shared memories of listening to classical music with her father. She, like the rest of the world, loved Elvis Presley and got to see him in concert in 1976 and talked about that concert for years. After having children, she shared their musical interests in rock and roll and even had a crush on James Hetfield. She also loved to dance and loved disco music.
Lorely loved to laugh and enjoyed being with her children and grandchildren, sharing funny stories. There are many wonderful memories of dinners at her house, for her birthday or holidays, laughing and singing.
She was married to Robert Hudson and had three children, Brian, Jeanette and Matthew. Tragically, her death was preceded by her son Brian’s death earlier in the year. She will be greatly missed by daughter Jeanette, son Matthew, grandchildren Kimberly, Elliott, Janie, Chloe, Gracie, Daesy, Rowan and Rosie.
