Beatrice Apolonia Hudson
Beatrice Apolonia Hudson, 91, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 11th. Beatrice, known as Bea, was a loving, gracious, and humble woman. She touched the lives of all of her loved ones and friends, and never failed to put a smile on someone’s face. Bea loved to dance, sing, and she had a lifelong passion for writing. She always dreamed of writing a book about her beloved parents, John and Helen Krause, her seven older siblings, and their lives back home on a farm in Holly, Michigan. She also held a long career in nursing, and inspired her daughters, Cynthia Hendley and Candace Carlton, to follow in her footsteps.
Bea was preceded in death by her parents; all of her siblings; her son, Timothy Hudson; and her husband, Donald Hudson.
She is survived by her children, whom she loved deeply, John Hudson, Cynthia Hendley (husband Terry), Candace Carlton (husband Terry), Donald Hudson (wife Marie), and Robert Hudson. She is also survived by her grandchildren, all of whom she cherished, Megan Hudson, Ashley Stanley, Matthew Hudson, Derrick Hudson, Andrew Hudson, Amanda Sukraw, Jesse Hudson, Will Hudson, Erica Hudson, Rachel Hanson, Wednesday Carlton, and Dominique Croteau. Bea also had many great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews that she adored.
Out of her selflessness and dedication to the furthering of medical research, she donated her body to UTMB. No services are scheduled at this time. We would like to thank Houston Hospice and the staff of Bay Villa Nursing Home for their care in her last days.
