Theresa was born Feb. 12, 1954, in Seminole, Texas, the daughter of James and Josephine Robinson Knight.

She was united in marriage to William Hudgens on Aug. 28, 1990, in Enid, Okla. They lived on their farm west of Ringwood raising cattle, crops and Theresa’s miniature donkeys. She sold her donkeys to people all over Oklahoma and Texas. She was the world’s best Mamaw and is going to be missed dearly by all.
