Sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law include Jack and Janice Abbott (Henderson), Morris Hill (Youngsville), Ronnie and Margaret Abbott (Raleigh), and Billy and Teresa Abbott (Franklinton).

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, C. B. Hudson, Sr. and Mollie Bennett Hudson, and her paternal grandparents, Thomas McGuire and Ethel McGuire. She was also the late great-granddaughter of Charlie and Mamie Wright Hudson as well as Peter Mallette and Florence Catlette Bennett. She was the niece of the late Charlie "Uncle Charlie" B. Hudson, Jr.

Star loved music whether it was singing or playing her guitar, piano, or organ! She starred in many productions under the direction of Charley John Smith at Louisburg College and under the direction of Mark Taylor, Dwight Berry, Walter Hurst, Larry Williams, Betty Willis, and Susan King at Lakeland Cultural Arts Center. For many years, she also served as choir director at Corinth Baptist Church.

In her lifetime, she worked for John F. Matthews (Attorney), Winn Dixie, State of NC Emergency Medical Services, Cooper Industries, E. Ray Cardwell Inc., was owner of Starshine Trucking, and the US Census Bureau.
