Gwynetha Jean ‘Gwyn’ Hudson

She was born Sept. 22, 1932, in Leeton, Missouri, the daughter of Cecil and Lucy Kenney McMillen. She was a graduate of Leeton High School.

On Nov. 22, 1951, she and Billy Lee Hudson were united in marriage in Leeton.

Gwyn worked as secretary to the school board for Warrensburg R-VI, executive secretary at UMB Bank, and for the Area Agency on Aging.

Gwyn was a gifted pianist and especially loved playing the old hymns, sharing her amazing talent with many churches in the community.  She along with her husband, Bill, had fond memories of friendships in the Golden Agers as they led the group in activities and musical programs.

She loved spending time with her grandchildren, cheering them on in every activity and sport.  An expert seamstress, she was easily talked into making elaborate Barbie doll clothes for her granddaughters.  Gwyn loved to crochet and knit, making sure each grand baby had a special handmade blanket.

Gwyn is survived by her sons, Dan Hudson and wife, Deb, of Great Falls, Montana; Dave Hudson and wife, Nancy, of Warrensburg; Rick Hudson and wife, Janice, of Warrensburg; and ten grandchildren, Patton Hudson and wife, Katie, of Holts Summit, Missouri; Sarah Johnson and husband, Justin, of Warrensburg; Diane Law and husband, Erick, of Overland Park, Kansas; Clint Hudson and wife, Sarah, of Warrensburg; Susan Grant and husband, Austin, of Warrensburg; Cathy Ballard and husband, Rory, of Rochester, Minnesota; and Josh, Jake, John and Jerry Hudson, all of Great Falls. She also leaves thirteen great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill, a brother, Joseph McMillen, and a sister in infancy.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the Alzheimer’s Association and can be left in care of the funeral home.
