Bonetta "Bonnie" Hudson
Bonetta Rae "Bonnie" Hudson, age 77, of Max Meadows, passed away on Friday, November 20, 2020. She was born in Uniontown, Pa., on January 4, 1943, to the late Donald and Doris Arnold Breakiron and Ralph Donald Thomas. She was preceded in death by the love of her life, Douglas Wayne Hudson Sr.; her loving son, Don Allen Hudson whom she has lived without for 19 years; two sisters, Donna Elaine Rose and Joy Lynn Hiles, and a host of brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
Bonnie was a devoted wife and mother who cared deeply for her family and friends. She did this not of obligation but because of who she was. She was an exceptional cook who loved cooking for her family, friends, and her church family. When she was bored, she would whip up a big batch of potato salad, some type of soup or dessert and deliver it to her family and friends and never keeping any for herself. She was selfless and never put herself before her family or friends. She was happiest when she cooked a big meal for her children and grandchildren. Bonnie was a member of the St. Paul Pentecostal Holiness Church.
