Carla Marie Kirkman Hudson – Oklahoma
Carla Marie (Kirkman) Hudson passed away in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 8, 2013. She was born September 13, 1961 in Jacksonville, Florida, raised in Bedford, Indiana, and spent the past thirty years making a home in Norman, Oklahoma where she worked as a dental lab technician.
Carla was known for having a mischievous sense of humor and loved to tease her family and friends with quick witted jabs and playful stunts such as jumping out from around a corner to scare them. She made an art of extending take-out Chinese food containers to astronomical proportions. The holidays were special to Carla, particularly Christmas, because these were treasured opportunities to spend time with those she held most dear. Carla had a heart of gold – those whom she befriended became a part of her extended family – and all knew they were loved.
Carla is survived by her husband, Michael Hudson; three children, Brandy Martin, Barbara (Barbie) Held, and Alexis Kirkman; six grandchildren, Adrian Martin, Joe Benard, Acacia Benard, Ny’Asia Benard, Luke Held, and Eva Held; three brothers, Charles Kirkman, Joseph Kirkman and John Kirkman; two sisters, Mrs. Robert W. (Kathleen) Dalton, and Mrs. Joseph (Karen) Parker; numerous nieces and nephews, friends old and new, and a dear personal friend, Darrell Goebel.
Carla was preceded in death by her parents, Earl LaVerne and Barbara Ann (Martin) Kirkman, and one brother, Kurtis L. Kirkman.
A graveside service for Carla will be held at 2 pm on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at Greenhill Cemetery.
Condolences may be sent to the family through Day & Carter Mortuary.
