Big Creek—Dorothy Huguley Hughes, 82, passed away at Bruce Community Living Center on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Born December 18, 1937, in Calhoun County, MS, she was the daughter of the late Wiley Howard Huguley and the late Sally Hendon Huguley. She was a faithful member of Big Creek Baptist Church, and loved her church and church family. She was retired from Dyerwood where she worked as a seamstress for many years. On March 2, 1957, she married John Allen Hughes, and they spent 57 wonderful years together until his passing in 2014.
Among her many hobbies was sewing and quilting. She also loved watching westerns and listening to music. She loved being outside on hot summer days, growing her beautiful flowers and keeping her yard in tip top shape. She loved her family, and cherished the time spent with her grandchildren. She also had a special bond with her sisters, and enjoyed going on vacation with them.
She leaves behind many precious memories for her family to cherish forever. Her love will live on in their hearts, and she will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving the Hughes family.
A Funeral Service celebrating her life will be held Friday, May 29, 2020, at 12:00pm at Big Creek Baptist Church. Visitation will be Friday from 11:00am until service time at the church. Burial will be at Chapel Hill Cemetery. Rev. Chris Conlee will be officiating.
Serving as pallbearers will be Ben Arrington, Jr, Brad Weddle, David Goodson, Larry Baker, Jr., Kenny Clanton, Randy Sims, Pete Lee, and Mark Vote. Honorary pallbearer will be Coley Warner.
She leaves behind her daughters, Susie Hughes Coleman of Big Creek, and Jennifer Hughes Marshall and husband Bryan of Hernando; son, Jimi Huguley of Memphis; sisters, Belle Hodges and Alice Hodges, both of Eupora, Betty Sims of Bartlett, TN;and Peggy O’Neal of Grenada; grandchildren, Scott Coleman of Big Creek, Sara Ayers, Jackson Marshall, and Lydia Marshall, all of Hernando; and she was blessed with a great-grandson, Dylan Coleman of Houlka.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John Allen Hughes; daughter, Barbara Hughes; and brothers, James Huguley, Ronnie Huguley, and Luther Huguley.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Big Creek Baptist Church.
