Obituary of Diane Lynne (Hudson) Escojido

Diane Lynne (Hudson) Escojido, age 70, of Lansing, Michigan passed away on Thursday, July 5, 2018.  Diane was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence L. Hudson and Vivian I. (Alward) Hudson; as well as her beloved husband, Asencion L. Escojido; and step-children, Adela, Joseph and Maria. 

Diane received her Associates Degree in Business from Lansing Community College.  She was a secretary for Ingham Medical Hospital for many years. She ended her career as an H.R. Compliance Officer and certified Charter School teachers across Michigan.  Diane loved to garden.  She created and maintained many flower gardens throughout her life.  She was also an avid shopper – she enjoyed the finer things in life.  She loved to paint, read books, and play the organ.  Diane loved her family, especially her husband, Asencion (or, as she always called him, “Lover”).  Diane and Ascension were married for 31 years before he passed in 2009.  He was her everything.  They traveled across the country and continent living in Mexico and Zepher Hills, Florida for many years, then finally retiring back in Lansing, Michigan.  Diane also loved her YorkiePoo, Luther.  Those two were inseparable!  Luther comforted Diane many days as she battled cancer.  Diane also loved the Lord.  She was baptized as a child into the Lutheran faith.  She attended St. Gerard Catholic Church with her husband for many years.  She became RCIA certified with her grandson, David C. Escojido, in 2012 at St. Gerard. 

She is survived by her step-children George, Estela, Esperanza, Anna Maria, and Asencion; her brothers, David Hudson and Wayne Alward; sister, Constance Smith (Hudson); as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.  She is also survived by these special mentions: David and Sheena Escojido and children; Brandyn McCabe and son; Brendyn and Kyleigh McCabe and children, Ron Reynolds, Linda Hannas, Jana and Eric McCabe; as well as Diane’s cousin, Beth.  She will never forget your love and kindness.

There will be no services.  The family would like to give our thanks to Mother Teresa House for their wonderful help and care.  If desired, friends and family may make memorial contributions to Mother Teresa House at 308 N. Walnut St., Lansing, MI 48933, or to McLaren Hospice and Home Care Foundation at www.McLaren.org.
