Agnes Hughes Obituary
Agnes A. Hughes began her earthly adventure Oct. 28, 1914, in Ravenna, Neb. To say her name and look into her crystal blue eyes, all who met her knew she had a relationship with time and space within a context of connectedness.
She survived her parents, six brothers and sisters, her husband, Jesse G. Hughes III, and her son Michael, as well as many cherished friends and acquaintances, transforming everyday joys and sorrows into meaning, hope and new life.
Like a gift that keeps on giving, a gift that never lost its intention of love, Agnes raised four children: Jesse G. Hughes IV, of Salina, Kan.; Marianne Tambalo and Kathy Halbig, both of High Rolls; and Linda Murphy, of Alamogordo. To these four she was their "Rocky Balboa." She knew how to train, fight the good fight and never allow a knockout. At 94, she had no defeats and graciously lived with life's battle scars.
To her eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, she was fondly known as "Gram," the unconditionally loving grandmother. To her many grandcats and granddogs, she will be remembered by her beautiful hands, which always provided the touch that connects people to pets.
She will rest with her husband, Jesse, at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Salina, the crossroads town where she lived for 67 years and raised her family.
In memory of Agnes, love and cherish family. Consider the words of American novelist Thomas Wolfe from his book "You Can't Go Home Again":
"…something has spoken to me in the night and told me I shall die. I know not where." Saying:
"To lose the earth you know, for greater knowing; to lose the life you have for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth
" - Whereon the pillars of this earth are founded, toward which the conscience of the world is tending - a wind is rising and the rivers flow."
The Hughes family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
