MACON, Ga. — On Saturday, Macon laid to rest the adopted matriarch of the "Allman Brothers Band" family - Mama Louise.
She died at the age of 93 on Tuesday.
"Mama Louise" Hudson was the co-owner of the H&H soul food restaurant.
She often fed members of the Allman Brothers Band before the group reached stardom and when the band had little money to their name.
Dozens of family and friends gathered at Macedonia church on Eisenhower Parkway at noon on Saturday to celebrate her life.
Those who spoke included Commissioner Elaine Lucas, State Senator David Lucas, and coroner Leon Jones.
They spoke about the impact she had on the Macon community.
After the funeral service, she was buried at Macon Memorial Park on Mercer University Drive.
Mayor Lester Miller proclaimed today as 'Mama Louise memorial day' in Macon-Bibb County.
