It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother Chestina Rita Hudson of Parkers Cove. She passed peacefully surrounded by her family at Mountain Lea Lodge, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia. Mom’s entire life was devoted to her family and home, being surrounded by her family was her greatest pleasure in life. She was an adored wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Mom enjoyed flowers and the simple things in life like being a homemaker; decorating; baking; and having the brightest whites on the line would give her great joy. Christmas was her favorite, decorations, tree, and family gatherings. The presence of children would always bring a smile to face, and many often referred to her as “Mom”.
