AHOSKIE, NC – Mrs. Elvie Jean Hudson, age 85, passed away on Thursday, April 22,2021 at the Accordius Health and Rehabilitation at Creekside of Ahoskie, North Carolina.

Mrs. Hudson was born on January 31, 1936 to James Clayborn Harris and Elva Hoggard Harris in Ahoskie, NC.

Joyce and family, I am so, so saddened to hear of your loss. Ms. Elvie Jean was such a sweet person and I remember her and your daddy all the way back to our house on Memorial Drive when I was just a squirt! Loved your grandparents, too – Mr. and Mrs. Harris. Any time I saw Ms. Elvie Jean she was so sweet and remembered all of us. I think she and Mama ran into each other at the hospital a couple of times! Great times back then. I am so sorry for your loss. God bless you and keep you through this heartbreaking time.

Thinking of you Keith and Joyce. Mrs. Hudson was such a sweet lady. I will miss her hugs when I used to see her at church when I was home.

She was almost awesome lady – I can still see her in those flower beds at her home keeping them spotless!

Joyce I am so very sorry to hear this. Mrs. Hudson was a very special lady. I so enjoyed our flying trips(even if it did get us in trouble once in a while). Praying for peace and comfort

Jean was a sweet lady and a great friend. I enjoyed our visits when I was home from Raleigh and learned a lot from her independent spirit. I will miss her but am thankful that she is no longer grieving for the loves of her life – J.T. and Nicholas.
