Billie Jean (Barnett) Hudson, resident of Owasso, passed from this life to her heavenly home on Sunday, October 30, 2016, at her home. Jean was born November 9, 1934, in Dell, Arkansas, to Lewis Elton and Ethel R. (Camp) Barnett. She was raised and received her education in Arkansas and Mississippi, graduating high school at Clinton, Mississippi. On February 25, 1955, she and John Leland Hudson were united in marriage in Little Rock, Arkansas; and to this union, four children were born. Following their marriage they made their home in Wichita, Kansas. They later moved to Oklahoma, first to Barnsdall and later Hominy, where Dr. Hudson established his medical practice. They left Hominy in the mid 1980’s and moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas. Dr. and Jean have made their home in Owasso since 2002. She was a member of the Central Baptist Church. Jean was a past member of the PEO and while her children were young, was a girl scout leader, den mother and Sunday school teacher.

We thought the world of Dr. and Jean Hudson. He was our doctor in Barnsdall, OK, while we were growing up. Tom’s Grandma Pace babysat with the Hudson children for years and loved their family dearly. We were blessed to come into contact with Jean and the family again when we moved to Owasso recently. She was such a beautiful person —- inside and out! She will be dearly missed and our love and prayers will continue for Dr. Hudson and the whole family at this difficult time.
