Dolores Ann Hudgens, age 86, passed away peacefully Tuesday,
October 27, 2020 at NHC HealthCare Sparta.

She was born December 13th, 1933 in Nashville, Tennessee to the
late Hubert Hudgens and the late Mary Frances Hudgens. She
married her longtime friend and love, James Reed Hudgens, in
August of 1950. She and James moved to Warren, Michigan where
they began their lives together and raised two children, Joyce
Elaine and Waymon Reed. Dolores became a schoolteacher at the
Warren Consolidated Schools helping troubled teens. She enjoyed
life and always had a smile on her face and a spring in her step.
She loved to go to the beach, take hikes, go on cruises, and take
road trips. She was game for anything fun and adventurous to do
with her family and friends. She had a passion for trail riding and
showed horses for many years. She adored her two grandchildren,
Amber and Colton, and helped on numerous occasions, for many
years, with homework assignments and school projects. She was
always busy, whether it was being a “Nana” to her grandkids or
cooking game birds with biscuits and gravy, living life to the fullest.
Several years ago, she and James moved back to Sparta,
Tennessee to be closer to family.

Dolores is survived by her husband of 70 years, James Reed
Hudgens; a daughter, Joyce Elaine Boudreau (Gordon); a son,
Waymon Reed Hudgens (Andrea); two brothers, Tommy Hudgens
(Andrea), and Charles Hudgens (Patricia); two sisters, Barbara
Brock (Gene– deceased), and Lynda Clark (Michael); two
grandchildren, Amber Hudgens and Colton Hudgens; two siblings-
in-law, Gene Hudgens (Elois) and Christa Hudgens (Hubert Jr.-
deceased). She also leaves many nieces and nephews and other
family members and friends who will sadly miss her.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Hubert and Mary Frances
Hudgens; brother, Hubert Hudgens, Jr.; and brother-in-law, Gene

Dolores was an exceptionally kind and loving person. She will be
missed by many.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

Online condolences may be made to the family at on her Memory Wall.

Although we met Delores just a few times, we were immediately struck by her positive and loving nature. She is a lady of great strength and faith who influenced, in a kind way, all who she came in contact with. God bless you, dear Delores.

We are so very sorry to hear of the loss of dear Delores. She was such a kind soul, and was always there for my sister Andrea and their family. I’m quite sure she was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, and I’m glad we knew her. The earth has given up an angel, and may you Rest In Peace Delores. You’ve earned it.
