Doris Buckalew

November 27, 1932 — December 27, 2020

Doris Lee Hudson Buckalew died at her home in Clarke County, Alabama, on December 27, 2020. She was born on November 27, 1932, to Henry Lee Hudson and Minnie Rebecca Baugh.
Born into a musical family, she was known for her strong alto singing voice. She enjoyed all kinds of music and passed that passion on to her children and grandchildren. Although she worked part-time as a bookkeeper, she dedicated most of her time to being a homemaker. She enjoyed trying new recipes, quilting, gardening and playing Rook. She loved traveling, especially vacations that included the whole family. Some of her favorite travel spots included Helen, GA, Gatlinburg, TN, Destin, FL, and Branson, MO. She was a lifetime member of Bassett Creek Baptist Church. She served as church treasurer, sang in the choir, and taught Sunday School classes for all ages until her health declined in recent years.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Thomas Wayne “Jack” Buckalew; her parents, Henry Lee and Minnie Rebecca Hudson and siblings, Elma Ogle and Lavoyd “Son” Hudson.
She is survived by her daughter, Dianne Buckalew Bryant; son, Danny Buckalew; son, Keith Buckalew and wife Jeri Lyn; siblings, Judy Nichols, Joe Hudson and wife Raye Ann, Lamar Hudson and wife Latona; sister-in-law, Joyce Duke Hudson; three grandchildren, James Hunter Bryant and wife Catherine; Danielle Buckalew Hailey and husband Ben; Brittney Taylor Buckalew; three great-grandchildren, Wyatt Bryant, Marley Bryant, and Owen Hailey and numerous nieces and nephews, other family and friends.
A graveside service will be conducted at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 2, 2020 at Bassett Creek Baptist Cemetery in Grove Hill with the Rev. Keith Johnson officiating and Lathan Funeral Home directing. There will be no public visitation.
Pallbearers will be Hunter Bryant, Damon Callaway, Dereck Callaway, Caine Conway, Ben Hailey and Jared Hudson
The family would like to thank her personal care givers for their devotion, faithfulness and love. Also, we would like to show our gratitude to Southern Care Hospice for their special care.
