JO ANN HUDSON (published on November 29, 2007)

JO ANN HUDSON It is with abject sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mom, wife, grandmother and best friend Jo Ann Hudson, on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at Grace Hospice with family by her side. She will be sadly missed and loved for all time by her husband Michael and her three children, Laurence Hudson of Dexter, Michigan, Nancy Deeley and John Hudson of Winnipeg; and her loving companion Daisy. Three granddaughters and two grandsons will also cherish Jo Ann's memory, Trevor, Leah and Shelby Deeley of Winnipeg, Daniel and Alexandra Hudson of Dexter, Michigan. Jo Ann was the only child born to Percy William and Una Polson in the town of Magrath, Alberta. Showing a strong interest early in life for helping others, Jo Ann completed nursing school and went on to pursue her dream of becoming a stewardess on Trans Canada Airlines, where she worked for several years. It was within the aviation industry where she met her husband Michael, a professional pilot. Jo Ann eventually settled in Winnipeg with her husband, where they began raising their family. She always made sure the family home was filled with the bouquet of delicious cooking, words of love and encouragement, and warm hugs and kisses. As her children grew more independent, Jo Ann became a Registered Nurse, providing care and compassion to untold numbers of residents of Deer Lodge Centre in Winnipeg. Jo Ann enjoyed playing the piano, and loved the sounds of the big band era such as Glenn Miller, or the modern tempos of The Manhattan Transfer. She was also a devoted dog lover, raising many treasured companions over the years. A person who always placed the needs of others ahead of her own, Jo Ann was very special, touching everyone she met in her own unique way, earning her the trust of many friends during her lifetime. A funeral service will be held on Friday, November 30, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. at Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway. Mom, words were never enough to say just how lucky we were to have you share your life, your laughter, and your unconditional love with us. Mom, we already miss you so very much. Thank you for your wisdom, and for teaching us how to love, laugh and cherish each other. Because of you, the world was a brighter and more beautiful place, and you made us complete. We love you so very much! A Mother's Love A Mother's love is something that no on can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . . It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking . . . It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems . . . It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation . . . A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand. -Helen Steiner Rice Thomson Funeral Home 669 Broadway - 783-7211 Life stories may be shared with friends and Family across the globe at
