Mary Hudson Reed, age 79, passed into the arms of her loving Savior on Saturday, November 4th, 2023.
Mary was born on Christmas Eve 1943 to William & Marie (Peters) Hudson. She grew up in Rochester, NY and attended Kentucky University, where she met the love of her life Frederick S. Reed. They married on January 30th, 1965 in East Rochester, NY. Mary and Fred raised their four (4) boys in Pembroke Pines, Florida and spent every summer on the shores of Lake Champlain at the Reed family camp in Champlain, NY.
Mary retired from the Miami-Dade County Public School System, where she was a much admired and loved teacher. Mary loved being a teacher and continued enriching the lives of children long after her retirement. She loved and trusted the Lord with all her heart and helped instill that love in her own children, as well as through a children's puppet ministry in both Florida and New York.
Mary was predeceased by her loving husband of 46 years in May 2011, her parents, sister & brother-in-law Betty & Edward Housel, brother William Hudson, twin grandsons James & John Reed and brother-in-law Howard Reed.

Great-grandchildren Colson Reed, Sophia & Hudson Thibodeau as well as nieces, nephews, close friends, extended family and her much loved companions Munchie & Molly.
The family would like to thank Hospice of the North Country and especially Erina Luciano. Erina, you are an angel on earth. Thank you for the loving care you took with "Momma Dukes." We love you.
Mary loved her family and we were blessed to call her "Momma", "Grandma" and "Gigi". This is not good-bye - it is until we meet again.
