Barbara was born June 27, 1939 in Bryan, TX, the daughter of Grady Cecil Williams and Velma Robertson Williams. She resided in Bryan most of her life and graduated from Stephen F Austin High School. She married Royce F. Hudson in 1954 and devoted herself to creating a loving, Christian home for her husband and her four children until Royce’s death in June 1976.

A young widow, she raised four teenagers to adulthood and aided them in completing their college educations. She bravely re-entered the world of work, first as a receptionist for Dr. Robert Benbow, then going on to a second career with Bryan I.S.D. where she worked until earning full retirement in 1999. She married Henry Oscar (Bubba) Tuck, Jr. in 1984 and enjoyed 28 happy years of marriage until his death in July 2012. Together, DinDin and Bubba (they) unconditionally loved seven grandchildren and cherished their many friends and extended family.

Barbara was baptized as a young girl and was a member of Steep Hollow Baptist Church and Central Baptist Church. She was active in the Good News Sunday School Class, Triple L and Inneract Bible study. She was proud to be a descendant of Texas pioneers and was a member of Austin’s Old Three Hundred and Daughters of the Republic of Texas. She regularly attended Nevill-Clary and Robertson family reunions, was active in S.F.A. alumni activities, and charter member of the Wednesday Night Dinner Club.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her two husbands, and sister, Virginia Williams Floyed.

She leaves behind her children Lynda (Rodney) Hurt, Terry (Kenneth) Goodman, Rusty Hudson, Michael (Terrye) Hudson; grandchildren Bradley (Misty) Hurt, Regan Hurt, Bennett (Beatriz) Goodman, Drew Goodman, Matthew Hudson, Paul Hudson and Melissa Hudson and one great-grandchild, Alexis Ann Hurt.

  10. My dearest DinDin, I have no way to reach you now other than in prayer…of which I know you will always be listening. I type this now simply for my broken heart. Its been 13 days since your gentle passing and yet I find it hard to imagine that you’re not here with us. You have been such a remarkable part of my life and I will miss you more than mere words can express. I so wished that your great-granddaughter, Alexis Ann, for which you are a partial namesake, could know you as I have but I’m thankful that you were able to meet her and spend time with all of us right up until you peacefully drifted away. However, I can’t help but feel cheated to lose you at 75. At least another decade or more with you was our hope; but not in God’s plan. He needed you more with him than we hoped to keep you here it seems. I do know that for the rest of our lives our little girl and those that come behind her will be hearing of their DinDin and how wonderful of a lady you are. I told you in the hospital a few months ago that you’re the strongest person I know. I’ve never and will never waiver from that belief and believe that lends itself to why I can hardly imagine you’re gone. Thank you so much (again, weak words) for everything you gave, offered, prayed for and just plain were. I’m sorry for saddling you with the name “DinDin” and realize how gracious you are to not have just corrected me….but then, that’s you. I will always love and miss you, your Baddy Oyce.
