October 13, 2004

Margaret S. Hudson, a homemaker and gardener, died of heart failure Friday at Keswick Multi-Care Center. She was 84, and a resident of Roland Park for half a century.

Born and raised Margaret Scott Hunt in Dallas, she earned a bachelor's degree in English in 1942 from the University of Texas, where she had been a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.

She worked during World War II in the personnel department of Haggar Clothing Co. and in a similar capacity later at Southern Methodist University.

After her marriage in 1947 to Earle Harrison Hudson, a Bethlehem Steel Corp. transportation management engineer, the couple moved to Baltimore and settled in Roland Park in 1954.

Until the birth of her first daughter in 1949, Mrs. Hudson was a research and secretarial assistant to Dr. N. Bryllion Fagin, who was an Edgar Allan Poe scholar and professor at the Johns Hopkins University.

From 1954 to 1971, Mrs. Hudson was active in the parents association at Roland Park Country School. She was a member of the Junior League of Baltimore's Perennial Garden Club, and enjoyed spending hours working in the rose and boxwood gardens of her Ridgewood Road home, family members said. She also was a world traveler.

Mrs. Hudson was a longtime active communicant of St. David's Episcopal Church, 4700 Roland Ave., where a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Oct. 23.

Survivors, in addition to her husband, include two daughters, Katharine Hunt Hudson of Roland Park and Margaret Hudson Rice of Guilford; and two grandchildren.
