Wilma Sue (Franklin) Hughes, 93, was called home Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
She was born Nov. 23, 1924, in Bessemer City, N.C., to the late Frank O.
and Doris (Penland) Franklin.
Mrs. Hughes and her husband, Bob, moved to Dunnellon in 1961 from York County, S.C. She was employed by Marion County Schools for more than 20 years in food services. She spent all those years at Dunnellon High School, retiring as cafeteria manager in 1991.
Above all, she loved her family and enjoyed the time with them. Other interests included bowling, serving in her church, fishing on the river, and playing Rook with family and her best friend, Esther White. She was known for her wonderful cooking and very happy to serve family and friends.
Mrs. Hughes loved the simple and most important things in life. She was happy to sing songs while her husband played the piano or sit in the yard swing with him by her side.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 73 years, Claude R. "Bob" Hughes.
