Mrs. Margie Hudson Crosby, 87, of Green Pond, entered into eternal rest Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at her residence, surrounded by her family. She was the wife of the late Henry Charles Crosby.
Born December 5, 1932 in Colleton County, she was a daughter of the late James Lowdie Hudson and Sula Priester Hudson. She worked alongside her family in many ventures including, Lord Colleton Restaurant in Walterboro, Crosby’s Grocery in Walterboro, Ashepoo Grocery, Crosby Enterprises, Inc., and Circle C Truck Stop.
Margie was the finest example of a true Christian lady. She centered her life around what she loved the most, God and her family. She was a long-time faithful member of Green Pond Baptist Church. At her church, she was member of the Women’s Missionary Union, adult choir, Sunday School Teacher, active with Vacation Bible School, and served on the social committee for many years. She was one of the oldest members of the church. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who over the years made a lasting impression on countless lives throughout her community. “Mama” or “Mrs. Margie” welcomed everyone into her home and there was always an extra seat at her dinner table, which demonstrated what an excellent southern cook she was.
