Obituary of Senora "Se" Hudson
Senora “Se” Hudson, 81, Marion, went to be with the Lord at 3:50 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, in her home. She was born in Leflore County, Mississippi, to the late Thomas Ollie and LeeOra (Sanders) Ollie, Sr., on January 12, 1938.
Senora married her husband, Ezell Hudson, Sr., on January 28, 1959. They shared 50 years together before he preceded her in death on September 18, 2009. She retired from Dana Corp. after 27 years of service as a machine operator and was the first African-American female to retire from Dana.
