Obituary of Geneva Hughes
Geneva Hughes, age 82, of Beavercreek, Ohio, passed away on March 11, 2023. Geneva was born on May 12, 1940 in Alva, Kentucky. She grew up in Cumberland, Kentucky before graduating from Benham High School as valedictorian in 1958. After high school, she attended Berea College where she graduated in 1962 with a B.S. in Nursing. It was there that she met Freeman Hughes, and they married on September 2, 1961, beginning nearly 60 years of loving, inseparable marriage. After graduating from Berea, they relocated to Ohio where she worked at hospitals in Circleville and Chillicothe. After her children Cheryl and David were born, she re-entered the nursing field first at Greene Memorial Hospital followed by Greenewood Manor in Xenia. Geneva and Freeman enjoyed travel and visited all fifty states and so enjoyed the beauty of God’s creation. She was a member of Twigs 11 for years making crafts for sale, working at the thrift shop, and enjoying new friendships. Geneva and Freeman belonged to the local University of Kentucky Alumni Club as associate members, with Geneva serving as secretary for one term. Kirkmont Presbyterian Church was special to Geneva. Through the years, she helped with many events and worked in the garden ministry for several years. Nothing was more important to Geneva than family. In her retirement years, Geneva took great pleasure in spending time with her tight-knit group of siblings (and their families), her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Geneva was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Freeman Hughes; her father, Astor Caudill; her mother, Euna Mae Hogg Caudill; and her sister, Alvena Caudill.
