Lyda, Mildred Hudgins - Edneyville  
Mildred Hudgins Lyda Owner of Lyda Farms Edneyville, NC Mildred Hudgins Lyda passed away at home on July 1, 2015 after a brief illness. She was born in Spartanburg, SC on June 25, 1928. She was the daughter of the late George F. Hudgins and Corine Bagwell Hudgins. She was preceded in death by her husband Rome A. Lyda, brothers Floyd Hudgins (died in action, World War II), Wesley Hudgins, sisters Tressa Hudgins, Jeanie Hudgins and Joyce Hudgins Thomas. Mildred was a devout and loving mother, aunt and community advocate. The dictionary defines a matriarch as an older person who is powerful within a family or business; this certainly describes her-the matriarch of Lyda Farms. She graduated from Draughon's Business College in Savannah, Georgia then moved back to Bat Cave, NC where she met and married Rome in 1948. They became farmers, working side by side for almost 60 years. Upon Rome's death in 2008 Mildred continued their legacy of farming by operating the family business, Lyda Farms, until her death. She was a substitute teacher at Edneyville School for many years. She was a faithful member of the Edneyville United Methodist Church and a member of the Edneyville Grange for over 65 years. In 2008 Mildred, and the farm she so dearly loved, were honored as the North Carolina Grange Farm Family of the year. Mildred was named the Community Bank's Apple Farmer of the year in 2013. She loved the Lord, her family, her community, farming, and mowing grass on her John Deere tractor. Mildred is survived by her three children, Sonna Lyda, Deb Lyda Foster and Jeff R. Lyda, niece, Julie Thomas Edwards, great niece, Stacie Edwards Loeffler (Todd), great-great niece, Aeva Dean Loeffler, her dear friend Darleeta Dukes, several beloved nieces, nephews and South Carolina cousins. She loved them all and felt loved by them as well. The family would like to thank Four Seasons Hospice and Toy Anthony for their support and care during her brief illness. A visitation will be held at the Edneyville United Methodist Church on Sunday, July 5 at 1:30 pm with a service celebrating her life beginning at 3:00 pm. Officiating the service will be Reverend Walt Christian, Reverend Dan Blackwell and Reverend Richard Rhodes. The eulogy will be offered by her very good friend, Father Alex Viola, Priest-Associate of St. John in the Wilderness, Flat Rock. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Edneyville United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 87 Edneyville, NC 28727.
