Teresa was born on October 26, 1961 in Mobile, AL to Reverend Woodrow and Betty Hudson. Teresa was diagnosed with end-stage ovarian cancer in November 2020. She faced the diagnosis with remarkable courage and grace. She continued to struggle mightily to overcome until Our Lord called her home. Her faith was steadfast throughout this journey, never wavering.
Teresa joined the Columbus Police Department in 1985 and has had several promotions with the CPD during her tenure. She joined the United States Secret Service in 1997 as a sergeant in engine command. She began her service with the Secret Service in 1997. Teresa understood that she held a position few are privileged to have, and she served with integrity. She began investigating financial crimes in the Miami Field Office. In December 1997, she transferred to the Clinton Protection Division, and in 2001 Teresa moved closer to home to investigate financial crimes at the Albany field office. In 2017, Teresa was promoted to Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Carter detail and retired from the United States Secret Service in 2019.
After her retirement, she immersed herself in her passion for golf. She became a member of the Ladies Golf Association and enjoyed spending time with her golf friends and playing the game. She loved the game, but her faith and family always came first.
Survivors include her parents, Reverend Woodrow Hudson and Betty Hudson; sister, Lisa Hudson; brother, Kevin Hudson (Gaye); niece, Reagan Hudson; Nephews, Tyler Lipham and Connor Lipham.
