Maurine Hughes, 98, of Glens Fork, Kentucky, passed away on February 26, 2022 due to natural causes at her daughter’s residence in Pendleton, Indiana.
Ruthie Maurine Hughes was born on May 16, 1923 to the late W. G. Andrew and Minnie Turner Andrew. Maurine was born and raised in Glens Fork — her favorite place in the world, where she met/married the love of her life and also raised her children. She married her husband, Adolph Hughes on August 16, 1941.
Maurine was a southern belle, she enjoyed the simple things in life — her family, friends, church, and the countryside. She especially loved calling her daughter every evening to discuss the day’s events and their next jewelry purchase. She was a devout Christian and shared her faith with everyone she met and attended the Glensfork Church of the Nazarene.
Maurine is survived by a daughter, Barbara Vibbert (Harold); grandchildren Kelly Kirchner (David) and Jamey Vibbert (Nicki); seven great-grandchildren, Stephen, Jeremy and Devon Humphries, Breanna, Cody, Kaylee and Corbin Vibbert; and three great-great-grandchildren, along with several cousins, nieces, Ima Dean, Pamela, great-niece Chareal Lynn, nephews and her beloved friends. Maurine always made her family a priority and had a special relationship with each of them. She is preceded in death by her husband and son, James E. Hughes “Bud”.
