Ann Rosemary Hudson Obituary

Ann Rosemary Hudson passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on September 21, 2023. Born in Ottawa in 1945, Rosemary grew up as the eldest child in

a large and loving family in White Rock, BC. While working with young children in Penticton, Rose met her husband Lynn and after their marriage settled on his farm in Riverhurst, SK.

Rose threw herself into the many demands and challenges of becoming a farm wife. After welcoming their son, Nathan, into the family, they moved to Swift Current.

In later years, Rose returned to White Rock to support her widowed mother and after her death, settled in Medicine Hat to be near Nathan and his family.

Rose loved to be creative—whether it be at the organ, painting or writing poetry. She spent many hours and received great satisfaction from being able to express herself through both the

brush and pen. Rose equally loved painting prairie scenes and those of the sea, especially from her family’s cabin on Mayne Island. A prolific poet, Rose viewed her poems as inspirational

paintings. She loved colour—in her paintings, writing and even her clothes!

A woman of deep faith, Rose’s love for God and her trust in His faithfulness was an anchor for the struggles in her life. Although she had many major health issues and these were becoming

increasingly debilitating, Rose didn’t show self-pity or complain about her ailments. Wherever Rose went she made friends, easily striking up conversations with total strangers. More recently, when

her lack of mobility kept Rose housebound, she used social media to make and keep in touch with hundreds of friends—friends who were connected by their interest in poetry, by politics, by health

challenges, by faith or just “friends of friends”. Rose used Facebook and Messenger to encourage them and many have commented on how much this has meant.

Although Rose loved people, most of all she loved her family— always welcoming them to visit and showing a keen interest in their activities. Extremely proud of her son Nathan and of his

family, Rose proudly bragged about their accomplishments. Rose will be lovingly remembered by her son Nathan and his wife, Laura; their children, Terrance, Micah, Keagan and Jayden; 

sister, Margaret (George) Ney; brothers, Ken (Jane) Stewart, David (Elizabeth) Stewart, Rob (Karen) Stewart; sister-in-law,Elizabeth Stewart; as well as by 21 nieces and nephews. She

was predeceased by her parents, Dr. Ray and Christina Stewart; her brother, Bruce Stewart; and grandson, Hunter Hudson.

A service of remembrance will be held in the Chinook Village garden lounge, 2801 13 Ave SE, Medicine Hat, at 1:00 on October 30.
