Mae A. Hudson was born on December 19, 1932 to the late John Robert and Allie Mae Bennett of Glenwood, AL.
She moved to Buffalo, NY in the late '40s and that's when she decided to put herself through Cosmetology School.
In 1955 she met and married the love of her life, William Hudson. They were married on October 30, 1955. (They would have celebrated their 58th year of wedded bliss.)
Mae enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, traveling and watching anything that had to do with cowboys and Indians. Her favorite show was Bonanza and The Andy Griffith Show.
