It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mom, Dorothy Marie Hudson (nee Michalitschka), on Wednesday, December 29th, 2021, at the age of 81. Dorothy was in a car accident on December 21st, 2021 and did not recover from her injuries.
Dorothy was born in Edmonton, Alberta on August 6th, 1940, to her parents Walter and Lena Michalitschka, joining sister Shirley and completing the Mick family. Dorothy grew up on the Michalitschka farm in Anselmo, Alberta (near Mayerthorpe), where she had many friends, including life-long friend Rosemarie (Knapp) Hartman.
On November 30th, 1957, Dorothy married Roy Hudson from Pouce Coupe, British Columbia and they lived on the Hudson farm for many years. Later, Dorothy and Roy lived in Lone Prairie (near Chetwynd, British Columbia), Grande Cache and Beaverlodge, Alberta, during their married years. Following Roy’s death in 2018, Dorothy moved to Dawson Creek to be closer to family and old friends. Dorothy loved to garden, sew, and work with wood, making many projects over the years that were shared with friends and family.
Dorothy loved to socialize, and the coffee was always on for any visitors that might stop by. Since moving to Dawson, Dorothy stayed active participating in card parties, coffee times, bingo games, floor curling, carpet bowling, and other activities available at her home, Spruceland Manor, and at the Seniors Hall nearby.
