Virginia Beach - Katharina "Kitty" Nick Hudgins, 87, passed away on January 14, 2014. Kitty was born May 11, 1926, in Koblenz, Germany and was the daughter of the late Albert Nick and Katharina Becker.
Raised in Germany, she came to the United States in 1947, finally settling in Virginia Beach when she has lived for over 59 years. She was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband Walter Edward Hudgins.
A naturalized citizen, she enthusiastically contributed to the community by devoting her time to public education and civil issues. She was very proud of her 27 years selling World Book Encyclopedias. Her core belief was a better education for our children secured a brighter future for them and the country. She loved making new acquaintances and helping those in need whenever possible. She also loved pets and was devoted to her home and family.
She is survived by her two sons; Carlton L. Hudgins, his fiancée Donna Trolenberg and the Honorable W. Edward Hudgins Jr., his wife Donna and her grandchildren Matthew Jarvis Hudgins and Holly Davidson (husband Michael Davidson) and great grandchildren, Austin, Alex, Ryanne, Drake and Drew Davidson.
The family gives special thanks to the caring staff of Harbourway and Seaside Health Center at Atlantic Shores, and her special friend and caregiver Starr Ricks, for their extra loving care of Kitty in her final days and to her wonderful neighbors and friends for their continuing support and care.
