Lois Marie Hudson, 68, of Charlottesville, VA passed peacefully and went to be with her Lord and Savior in heaven on July 24, 2020.

Lois was born on February 4th, 1952, the youngest daughter of the late William Lorraine Hudson Sr. and Helen Marie (Bosley) Lynch. She graduated Potomac Senior High School, Oxon Hill, Maryland in June 1970. She lived in Germany briefly, Washington, DC. for a few years, then moved to her home in Dale City, Virginia. She raised her daughters there and provided them with a strong Christian foundation, as members of Heritage Baptist Church in Woodbridge, Virginia.

In 1985, while raising her daughters as a single mother, Lois went to work full-time at the Washington D. C. Navy Yard. Lois went to school in the evenings in order to complete her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Business Management. Lois was an active member of Christ Chapel Church and then Grace Baptist Church in Woodbridge, VA. There she taught classes on topics she was passionate about such as witnessing to cults. Lois served through Prison Fellowship Ministries. Lois began her own photography business, focusing on portraiture. After retiring, Lois moved to Charlottesville, VA to live with one of her daughters and family.

Lois was preceded in death by her sister Margaret Ann “Peggy” Noris and her mother and father.

She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, William Lorraine Hudson, Jr. and Deeann J. Hudson; her niece and nephew-in-law, Leslie “Shelly” Detweiller and Johann Detweiller.

Always making the best of her situation, Lois stayed positive and never lost her “funny bone” even during times of illness. While her family and friends miss her, they rejoice in her Homecoming and never will forget her support and sense of humor.

Dear Heather and Nicole,
My deepest sympathy to you and the Family. May God comfort you as you grieve the lost of your Mother and my dear friend Lois. I met Lois February 4, 1985. It was my first day on my new job at the Navy Regional Contracting Center on the Washington, DC Navy Yard. I knew when she invited me to lunch that first day that we would develop a bond and be friends forever. In fact, Lois was my very first friend when I moved to the DMV. We stayed in touch through the years confiding in and comforting each other. While I will miss Lois, I will forever reflect on the time we shared and the many memories I have of our times together.
Rest In Peace My Dear Friend
Elaine Logan

There are so many good memories of Lois. Her smile, her laugh, her wit, and her thoughtfulness. Out of a loving heart, Lois always tried to improve the lives of others. She was a very talented photographer and captured some of the most important moments of life. She will be truly missed. She was a second mother to me and my heart goes out to Nicki, Heather, their family, and friends.

When we met we were instant friends!!! We discovered, through talking, that she was 2 days younger than me. She always joked that I was older than her & we tried to have our own birthday celebration every year. Her sense of humor was wonderful...she would tease me about being born on Groundhog's Day & ask if I'd seen my shadow. Even though we've lived miles apart for years, we've always stayed in touch. I just talked to her a few weeks ago & she asked how I was doing...never letting on that she was ill. She was always concerned for other people before herself. She was the best friend I could ever have asked for & will be missed.

Condolences to the family. Lois was a sweet young lady in High School. My mom also worked at the Navy Yard during WWII.
So sorry for your loss.

Lois was my best friend. We met in 1977 when our family moved to Dale City, VA. Lois' family was the first to move into a house on the street of our subdivision, we were the second. Lois and I went through happy and sad times together. In the early years we shared interests in sewing, crafts, books, music, and religion. In the middle years, we shared the struggles of working full time and going to night school. In the later years, we shared words of encouragement through illnesses and difficult times. She was always kind, smart, and funny. She sincerely wished the best for everyone and helped wherever she could. She was a second mother to our children. Her faith in Jesus was steadfast and that is why I know she is walking and laughing with the angels now.

Lois was kind, intelligent, caring, protective, and talented and often took care of us as if we were her own children. She cared deeply for others and wanted to make the world a better place. She worked hard and lead by example. Her photography captured her subjects with depth and beauty. She found time in a busy world to help and minister to the less fortunate and often forgotten. She made everyone feel like they were valued.

My deepest sympathies to Lois' family and friends. Lois was such a kind, caring person who will be greatly missed. She was devoted to her family, church, and several worthy causes. She was also very intelligent with a strong sense of humor. Words fail me now as there is no way to accurately and succinctly characterize the over 40 years that I have known her and what she meant to my family and to me.
