Peggy Jane Breithaupt Hudson, age 83, of Marietta, Georgia passed away on July 11, 2019. She was born on July 11, 1936 in Atlanta, Georgia to Charles C. Breithaupt, Sr. and Ruth Simpson Breithaupt. She was married to Wallace E. Hudson for 59 years before his passing in 2018. She is survived by her daughter Debbie Hudson of Snellville, son Mike Hudson of Cartersville, brother Charles C. Breithaupt, Jr. of Clayton, nephew Chuck Breithaupt and wife Carissa of Marietta, niece Julie B. Speyer and husband Steve of Madison, grandnieces and nephews. Mrs. Hudson grew up in Buckhead on Pharr Road. She was a 1954 graduate of North Fulton High School. In the 1950’s she worked at Bates Camera Shop in Atlanta and Fulton County Airport. She married in 1959 and became a homemaker. She and her husband moved to Marietta in 1961. She became a Girl Scout leader in 1967 when she started Brownie Troop 677 at East Valley Elementary School. She continued that work with Junior and Cadette troops at East Cobb Middle School and as a leader at Scout Haven summer camp. Along the way she was also a Cub Scout den mother, but her Girl Scout work culminated with a Senior Troop at Wheeler High School which she led with Connie Graves from 1975 to 1980. She was very proud of her work with Scouts and it allowed her to share her enjoyment of the outdoors by hiking, camping and even cave-exploring.

Dear Hudson Family,
I am Margaret Smith's daughter, Carol Black, and I wanted to let you know how sorry I am to learn of Peggy's passing. I also wanted to tell you what special and beloved neighbors Peggy and Wallace were to my Mom. A few months before my Mom passed away she asked me to drive her by her old house and try to catch Peggy at home. Peggy was home and they had a great visit. Mom often spoke of Peggy and Wallace and this last visit meant a lot to her.
Blessings,
Carol

Peggy was our good neighbor for decades. We frequently crossed paths, strolling through the neighborhood and stopping to bring one another up to date on a variety of topics. On her walks, she would look in on neighbors to ensure they were well and, no doubt, brought bright moments into many lives. My husband reflects on her love of the outdoors and refers to her as the original "pioneer" woman because of her determination and endurance. We marveled at her abilities and practical knowledge of engineering. When we replaced our driveway, Peggy single highhandedly moved huge chunks of concrete to the creek bed behind her house, as Mark broke up our existing driveway with a jack hammer. She blessed our family with her sweet personality and generosity. She shared the bounty from her farm, gifting us with fresh vegetables and eggs. We are grateful for her friendship and the memories of many years that passed all too quickly. May God's indescribable love comfort her family and friends, as we grieve the loss of a wonderful woman and rejoice in Heaven's gain.
Linda and Mark Vrooman
