Delia Hope Lemon Hudgins of Hayes, passed away on Jan. 12, 2021 surrounded by family. Delia leaves behind a loving son, Zachary Wilde Phillips; fiancé, Bruce Bischoff; brothers, William Lemon Jr. (Christina) of California, Patrick Lemon (Vickie) of Gloucester, Edward Lemon (Mary) of Gloucester; sister, Lana Lemon of Williamsburg; sisters-in-law, Dana Black (Don), Mary Ann Raddin; brother-in-law, Michael Hudgins (Becky); father-in-law, Winfred Hudgins, and a host of nieces and nephews. She was a member of Severn Church, loved biking, hiking, singing, art, horses, her dog and especially her family and friends. Her personality was magnetic always so welcoming to everyone. She loved sharing laughter and encouragement with others, as well as giving gifts adorned with her beautiful bows. However, her greatest joy in life was being a mother; she spoke of Zack all the time and would say he was her whole world, which was clear to those around her. Her life touched so many and we are grateful for every moment we had with her. Her laughter and love will never be forgotten. She will be missed terribly by so many, but it is with great comfort that we know she is with the Lord and has reunited with her parents in Heaven. A graveside service conducted by Pastor Bill West was held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021, in Providence Baptist Church Cemetery, Gloucester.
The stars look a little dimmer.
The moon looks a bit melancholy.
The air is a little less sweet.
The flowers hang their heads down low.
The birds sing a sad, sad song.
All of nature mourns with us. The world just isn’t the same.
Then the sunrise comes, and we are reminded of the beauty that awaits us.
A beauty you’re seeing that we can only imagine.
