MORRIS, Mildred Hudgens Age 90 of Ashland City, died on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville. She was born on December 5, 1921 in Cheatham County, where she lived most of her life. The daughter of Durham and Vivian Everett Hudgens, she was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 60 years, Paul (A.P.) Morris and her brother, T.D. (Tom) Hudgens, Jr. Survivors include two sons, Tom (Jeanie Dallas) Morris of Gallup, NM, and Dan (Lisa) Morris of Jackson, TN; grandson, A.J. Morris and granddaughter, Becca Morris, both of Jackson; sisters, Mary Gladys Nash and Juanita Eller, both of Nashville, and numerous nieces and nephews. A 1941 graduate of Cheatham County High School, she earned the top grade in her class at beauty college in Nashville and was a “beautician” for nine years. She married Paul Morris of Ashland City on March 26, 1946. They lived in Nashville until 1954, then returned to Ashland City, where she lived in the same house for almost 58 years. She worked as a teacher’s aide before becoming a designer for 25 years at Ashland City Florist, where she directed more than 200 weddings. She was a cherished mother and friend who looked for the good in everyone. She had the gifts of encouragement and comfort, and if she could make you laugh, all the better, especially with her impersonation of comedienne Minnie Pearl. She was loved by all who knew her, which is why about 200 people attended her 90th birthday celebration in December. She loved the Lord and was a member of Ashland City Free Will Baptist Church for more than 70 years, teaching Sunday School and singing specials in her younger days. Her sons were blessed beyond measure to call her “Mama,” and they thank everyone who has shown kindness to her over the years.
