Jean Hugh, 92, passed away February 16, 2014. She was born in Hempstead, Long Island on March 25, 1921, but grew up in Vero Beach, Florida. She served her nation during the wars working as a civil servant in many countries such as Japan, Korea, China and Europe. She was a talented artist and a friend of all creatures.

After retiring from the Federal Government, she made it her mission to care for many of the feral cats in her area. She was very dedicated to the cats and cared for many colonies.
