Dorothy Mae Hudson

August 7, 1925 - February 27, 2021

Dorothy Mae Parrish Hudson, 95, of Virginia Beach passed away on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
Dorothy was a native of Red Bay, AL and was a long time resident of Virginia Beach.  She was a member of Haygood United Methodist Church, Fleet Reserve Branch 60 Ladies Auxiliary, VFW Post 4809 and Eastern Star.  Dorothy was beloved by those who knew her, and throughout her long life was the rock of her family who greatly miss her already.
Waiting for her with a big hug in heaven are her husband Jack M. Hudson and daughter Jacqueline Rumberger, her mother, father, sister, brother and her closest friends.  Keep the curtains open in heaven for her.
She is survived by: her daughter Deborah Waterfield of Virginia Beach; her son David Hudson and his wife Vicki of Clifton, VA; grandchildren Lisa Caron and Eric D’Ambrosio, Sarah Jacey Hudson, and William, David and Elliot Rumberger; six great-grandchildren; and many loving nieces and nephews. Marian Pope, Luther Waterfield, Lynn Pope, and the Zaborsky Family were also very special people in her life.  She was also grateful to the staff and friends at Marian Manor, especially Connie, Louisa, and Nadia.
The family will receive friends on Sunday, March 7th from 2:00 to 4:00 at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel, and a private funeral service and burial will be conducted on Monday, March 8th at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens.  A celebration of Dorothy’s life will be planned for this summer, when the world is a safer place.  Condolences may be left for the family below.
