Georgia Beth Marion Hughes

Ardmore - Georgia Beth Hughes was born January 3rd, 1939 to Betty Ruthven and George Lee Marion in Ardmore, OK. She passed from this life into glory on September 24th, 2021 at the age of 82.

On September 3rd, 1961 she married Roger Howell Hughes in the First United Methodist Church of Ardmore. They celebrated their 60th anniversary together at the same church they were married just several weeks ago

Georgia was a graduate of Ardmore High School in 1957, attended Oklahoma College for Women in 1961 with a Bachelor's degree in Education and East Central University in 1980 with a Masters in School Counseling. She began working for Ardmore City Schools in 1970 as an elementary school teacher and then as a school counselor from 1980 to 2000.

Georgia was an active member of First United Methodist Church of Ardmore, where she was baptized and attended her entire life and was an active member in the Philanthropic Educational Association (P.E.O.) for many years.

Georgia loved teaching and counseling in early elementary education. It was more than a job to her...it was one of her passions to nurture and love on the children and faculty each and every place she worked.

Georgia Beth was a woman of great faith, passion and love. She loved the Lord and knew Christ as her personal Savior. She served out her faith in many ways; singing in the choir, helping with youth and counseling ministries and beyond the walls of the church by calling or sending her special "Notes and letters" of love and encouragement. Georgia loved her friends - and was always concerned about each of them throughout the years. She kept in touch with as many as possible and held them close to her heart.

Georgia's heart was also full of passion and love for her family. Most of her relatives were from Arkansas...and she grew-up spending summers in Cotter with her aunts, uncles and cousins. Another passion and love of her life was her sweet Roger, of 82 years. They built a life together in Ardmore full of meaning and purpose with their children and extended family, spending hours at the church, community activities and almost every weekend on Lake Murray - enjoying her family and friends and enjoying the outdoors. Roger and Georgia had a houseboat and a BR2 family that she and Roger enjoyed after retirement.

Georgia LOVED her home and was passionate about making it the most beautiful place for family and friends to gather. Everyone welcome, any time, day or night. Georgia passionately loved her grandchildren - Jake, Brooke and Sam. Known as "Nana", she was constantly keeping up with each of them and making sure they spent as much time as they could with her...extended summers and holidays. She also loved her nieces and nephews like they were her own...keeping up with their lives and families as they grew throughout the years and considered all her healthcare workers family as well. As her health declined throughout the past years, she added to her purpose by creating gifts and making calls and sending love-filled notes to people. Georgia continued to show the Love of Jesus and walk out her faith until her final days.

Georgia was preceded in death by her parents, George and Betty Marion and brother, John Marion. She is survived by her husband, Roger Hughes of the home, daughter, Kelley Segler and her husband, Billy of Ardmore; son, Ken Hughes and his wife, Julie of Thompson's Station, TN; grandchildren, Sam Segler and Jake and Brooke Hughes; nephews and nieces Brian Hughes, Michael Hughes, Darrell Hughes, Elizabeth Etter, Patrick Stearman and Jennifer Timme; along with numerous great-nieces and nephews.

A memorial service is scheduled for Friday, October 1st at 11:00 am at the First United Methodist Church of Ardmore with Rev. David Daniel officiating. Visitation will be held Thursday September 30th from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at Craddock Funeral Home.

Memorials may be sent to First United Methodist Church Memorial Fund, 501 W. Main St., Ardmore, OK 73401.
