officiating. Members of
the chapter of the Order
of Eastern Star, to which

charge of the grave ritual
and acted as flower bearers
at the church. Interment

Mrs. Hudson's death was
attributed to high blood
pressure, an ailment from
which she had suffered
for several months.
She is widely known
throughout this section for
the excellent cuisine of
the restaurant, which she
has operated here and else-
where for a number of years.
Some years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Hudson had a restaurant
business here and when the
Dixie Hotel was built they
were the first lessors of
of that hostelry. Later,
they sold their business
here and moved to Norton,
where they operated a popular
restaurant. A little over
a year ago, they returned
here and leased the Eagle
Hotel which they have managed
and operate every since.
