Our beloved sister, Marie Hudson, ascended to the spiritual world on Saturday, September 4 in a hospital near her home in Louisville, KY. She is a champion of faith, deeply devoted to True Parents and the teaching of the Divine Principle, and a loving wife and mother.
Let us continue to offer our prayers and support to Marie and the Hudson family during this important time.
Following is a brief biography of Marie's life from her husband, Lloyd and information about her Seonghwa Service.
The Chicago Family Church Ministry Team
Elsie Marie Hudson was born on the south side of Chicago into a family of four older sisters and six older brothers. Her mother, Reesey, was Marie’s daughter’s namesake. Joe Alderson was her hard-working father.
Marie grew up with aspirations of being a teacher, but her accomplishments in life far exceeded anything that she could have ever imagined!
After learning the Divine Principle in 1972 in Chicago, Marie was reborn. She became a Christian and understood many well-kept secrets of the Bible. She devoted her entire life to revealing those secrets to the world as a teacher and minister of the Unification Church.
During her many years of service, Marie worked for a long time at the World Mission Center attending True Parents and True Children. She cooked for thousands of members during church Holy Days. She later was Regional Secretary for a host of Regional Leaders, including Dr. Ki Hoon Kim.
Marie was one of the first members to teach Divine Principle in Christian churches from the pulpit through the guidance of Rev. Jong Bok Hong. She provided great spiritual support during that time in Chicago to Rev. Purnell Spicer. She also served as a missionary to Hungary.
As Illinois Chairwoman of the Women’s Federation for World Peace, Marie was electric. As a lecturer, she was passionate. In the words of her husband, Lloyd, her greatest challenge was loving her hard-to-love husband and her greatest joy was their lovable daughter, Reice.
Marie’s greatest regret is that she didn’t live long enough to see her daughter walk down the aisle as a bride. Her final days on earth were spent trying to make inroads into developing a closer relationship with her husband’s side of the family. She will now have to continue her efforts from the world of spirit.
