Mary Isbell Hudson Cox, age 72 of Dublin, died Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at her residence.  She was born in Pulaski on August 21, 1950, and was the daughter of the late Virginia Lyons Hudson and the late Benjamin Franklin Hudson.  Mary was a life-long member of the Newbern United Methodist Church, where she joyfully engaged distributing the Upper Room.  Mary had a love for children, having kept many over the years.  Somewhere along the way, the children gave her the name “Mimi.”  She loved football, and she would fight for the Dallas Cowboys.  Much of her free time was developed into a small ministry, of sending cards to her church members, friends and relatives of her community, always attempting to brighten their days.

She is survived by her son:  William “Frank” (Michelle) Franklin Cox of Fargo, North Dakota:  brother; Benny Wayne (Karen) Hudson of Dublin: sisters; Sandy (Johnny) Ratcliffe of Dublin, Erma (Ray) Sheppard of Dublin, Joyce Hudson Quesenberry of Newbern:  two grandchildren; Lillian Virginia Cox of Roanoke, and Benjamin James Cox, of Fargo, North Dakota.  She is also survived by two special cousins, Richard Lyons and Carolyn Lyons, along with many other cousins, nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Seagle Funeral Home with the Rev. Paige Wimberly officiating.  The family will receive friends from 1:00  until 2:00 p.m.

In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Cousin, Mimi and Sheshe.  Today, Wednesday, September 28, 2022.  God saw you were getting tired and no cure, not to be so.  Your heart stopped beating and God proved He only takes the best.  The family who loves and misses you!
