Bay Cove Assisted Living Home crowns king and queen

There’s a special love story between a new Mardi Gras king and queen at an assisted living home in Biloxi.
Leslie and Winnie Hudgeons won king and queen during the annual Mardi Gras Ball at Bay Cove Assisted Living in Biloxi tonight. The couple have been staying at Bay Cove since August, but have a deeper connection when it comes to the City of Biloxi.
Winnie is originally from England and met Leslie while on vacation in Germany. The two ended up getting married in Biloxi. That was 54 years ago and they’ve been together ever since.
The Hudgeons tell News 25 it feels great to be crowned. “It was a great honor because it was voted on. All these young ladies here and everybody voted for us and I thought it was a big honor,” said Winnie.
Leslie said, “See this is the first time we have ever been king and queen, but they won’t let us do it next year so we have to enjoy it this year.”
Leslie tells News 25 he always says he asked Winnie to dance 54 years ago and they’ve been dancing ever since.
