Suzanne Johnson Hudgins, age 73, entered into the gates of heaven where she was embraced by our Lord Jesus on November 17, 2020 surrounded by her family at home after a short battle with cancer.

Suzanne was born on April 30, 1947 to M.C “Tuffy” and Susan Johnson in Hattiesburg, MS. She attended Hattiesburg High school and the University of Southern Miss where she entertained crowds as a Dixie Darling. She married her high school sweetheart Ed “Tex” Hudgins in 1967, and they lived in many places across the United States until finally settling in Madison, MS.

Suzanne is survived by her beloved husband Ed Hudgins and their three daughters and their spouses: Kelsey and John Abington, Leslie and Jay Loposer, and Courtney and Scott Ray. She has nine grandchildren: Brooke Abington and her husband, Ocean Carlson, Wesley Abington, Joshua Abington, Andrew Abington, Brock Loposer, Knox Loposer, Price Loposer, Noah Ray and Emery Ray. She was also survived by her siblings Judith Pagliughi, Jeffery Johnson, and Joel Johnson.

There is nothing Suzanne loved more than her Savior Jesus Christ, and we know without a doubt that she is dancing with Jesus right now. Suzanne was an active member of many bible-studies and attended Pine Lake Church in Madison. She loved praising the Lord with the shofar and blowing it at revivals, prayer meetings, and even at the Mississippi State Capitol. Suzanne was known for her joy and infectious laughter, her daring and adventurous spirit, and the ways in which she loved others with compassion. She was a prayer warrior, a worshipper, and loved her family fiercely.

The visitation is scheduled at 12:00 on Saturday, November 21st followed by the funeral service at 2:00 at Parkway Funeral Home in Ridgeland, MS.

Ed and all the family of sweet Suzanne, Golson and I regretted that we were not able to celebrate Suzanne's life in person due to health issues. Though we were not there in person, we were in spirit and really loved seeing all the pictures in her memory.

After hearing just a few days ago about Suzanne's sickness, I was thankful that she was able to live quite a while feeling well and happy, not even knowing that her time to leave was near.

Suzanne was one of my earliest playmates, along with our cousins Zoe Claire and Jane. As we grew up we still stayed in touch and I will surely miss her E-mails and texts in the future and sharing Christian beliefs together.

I can just picture her entering the gates of heaven being met by her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends who have gone before her...and especially our Emily. Emily and Suzanne are healed as they walk the Streets of Gold together!

Love and prayers for all of you in the difficult days ahead.

Ed, Judy & I are so saddened to hear of Suzanne’s passing. We had some good times with both of you when we lived in Tulsa & worked for Sun Ray DX oil company together.
Suzanne & I became friends after all these years on FB & got to see each other’s families with photos. You have a beautiful family & we have all of you in our prayers. May God Bless.

Our sincere condolences to Ed and family. Suzanne was so full of energy, smiles and laughter and I had the pleasure of spending time, traveling with Suzanne throughout Japan from Tokyo to Kyoto during the '90s. While the men played golf, we went on our shopping spree and I had to ward off the Japanese children, who all believed that some famous actress from USA, was in town.
Although there are many memories, most recently I believe the one sentence she said while going through her beautiful house shows the playful and cute personality of Suzanne....was..."Ask Ed how he got the piano up there!"
Suzanne, I still want to hear it from you. I will miss you...

My dearest Ed , There are no words that I can write that could possibly express how deeply I feel for you and your beautiful girls and their families . It has been a long time since we’ve seen each other and I missed our last reunion by a few days but I saw photos of you and Suzanne and they made me smile.. I thought maybe you had brought one of your daughters, seriously . I have to take a little credit for the two of you getting together in high school as I remember the phone calls to me from Suzanne saying “ I don’t want to get serious” and then your calling me to tell Suzanne that you didn’t want to get serious .... I think I finally told the both of you to work it out. And you certainly did.... Suzanne was a beautiful lady ..
Heartfelt love from me

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family. Knowing Suzanne was a delight. Patsy and I met you and Suzanne at Colonial Heights quite a few years ago. You are certainly in my thoughts and prayers. I know the grieving process will be difficult for you. Please reach out to me if you are so inclined.

What a dear friend and a faithful follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have so so many funny memories of Suzanne . She called me Wiz and it was such an endearment. One of the funniest memories was when she had her little bird and was trying to get Lauren to like him. She thought he was like kissing Lauren and the bird was pecking at her EAR trying to get her stud earring. We were laughing until sweet Lauren started tearing up. Her sense of humor was contagious. I share in your grief.

We grew up together in Hattiesburg then in Jr High and High School we were part of THE BIG EIGHT. Until CoVid, We planned group get togethers at least once a year, although we are now spread out over four States, Suzanne was our moral and spiritual leader. She is now our guardian Angel.
We all love and miss her and are praying for her family, as she would’ve wanted. Bless all of you! With much love!
