Barbara Ann Hudson-Delgado

If you are ever having a hardship and you find yourself angry or frustrated, stop. Consider: Barbara Ann Hudson-Delgado (you probably knew her as “Mom”, “Grammy”, “Mimi”, or “Barb”) who entered eternal life on April 26th, 2020. Her delightful spirit is carried on by her two daughters, Betty and Debbie and their sister Andrea, five grandchildren, Will, Christina, Brian, Renee, and Jessica, her two great-grandchildren, Brandon and Brian, and four surviving siblings, Susie, Connie, Tommy, and Clancy, and an extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life around the world. We were blessed to learn so many valuable lessons from this woman who was described as one of the most considerate saints who ever walked this Earth. Among them: always carry your sense of humor, channel your anger and deal with your hardships gracefully- let them go and give them to God. Most importantly, ALWAYS PRAY AND NEVER WORRY.

Barbara was born in Chicago, IL on April 24th, 1935. She spent her childhood in Pawhuska, OK. Her loving parents, Henry Clay and Patricia Hudson also owned a ranch with two cows Clancy named after her daughters.  Hudson humor. She went to Pawhuska High and then majored in Languages at Oklahoma University, where she met her husband, Guido Delgado. After their marriage, they took off for her husband’s career to Camiri, Bolivia. From there, Barbara grew an affinity for South America, particularly Bogota, Colombia. She was so entranced with their warm and welcoming culture, and perpetuated this within her family and friends. She absolutely loved when people came together and celebrated life. She spent time raising her family in Venezuela and Argentina. For a gringa, her Spanish was spoken beautifully!

All of her grandchildren will firmly attest that their grandmother provided some of the most fun-filled moments of their childhood and continued to do so in their adult life. In retrospect, Barbara certainly had a talent of bringing the most unwilling people together- and SOMEHOW…made them have a blast.

Barbara was mysterious in so many ways, but not shy about the things she was passionate about. She enjoyed world travel, bridge games with her friends, she was a jazz enthusiast, an art enthusiast (particularly Georgia O’Keefe), and of course… a Miami Dolphins FANATIC! GO FINS! She was the first woman to be seen in a bikini at Mar de Plata, Argentina. This woman has seen and experienced it all. Her story telling could entrance the roughest of all crowds.

Barbara was a lucky woman, who led a lucky existence, and for this we can all be grateful.  Be joyful Barbara had a full life, rather than being sad about her departure. Barbara is at peace. Know how precious you all have been to her, those mentioned and unmentioned. Knowing and loving each one of you was the success story of her life. There are so many beautiful days to come. Barbara was happy to have been here and all of us carry a piece of Heaven with us now that she has found home.
