Carolyn Schultz Hudson, 85, a lifelong resident of Saint Marys, passed away peacefully Jan. 20, 2013.
She was born July 20, 1927, the youngest of four children (Evelyn, Howard, Anna Louise and Carolyn), to Vernon and Carrie Stroh Schultz. A 1945 graduate of Memorial High School, she was known for her sweet personality and statuesque beauty. While standing on a street corner with friends, she caught the eye of young Thomas Hudson in 1947. They fell in love and were married June 20, 1948, at Zion Lutheran Church in St. Marys and enjoyed 64.5 years of wedded bliss.
Carolyn is survived by her husband; a son, Eric Hudson; a daughter-in-law, Anne Harrigan Hudson; a granddaughter, Erin Hudson; many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins; and great-nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Colonel Howard Schultz, and sisters Evelyn Schultz and Anna Louise Gossard.
Carolyn was a devoted wife and mother. She was an active member of the Progress Club, the Shakespeare Club, the Mother's Club and several bridge clubs. She and Tom were "dub" golfers. Recently, Carolyn and Tom relocated to Sparta, Michigan, where they enjoyed retirement life and spending time with their granddaughter, Erin Hudson.
