Class of 1948


Virginia Beach - Margaret Hughes Jones died October 13, 2013 at Rosewood Village in Charlottesville VA, surrounded by family.

Margie was born February 2, 1931 to Fabian and Lavenia Hughes. After graduating from Cradock High in Portsmouth Va she worked as a secretary at the Naval Supply Center. It was there she was introduced to the light of her life, Clyde Jones. They married and moved to Virginia Beach in 1965. She raised her daughters while also enjoying serving on the board of the Kingston Elementary PTO, the Women's Auxiliary of Virginia Beach General Hospital and devoting much of her time and talent to St Nicholas Catholic Church where singing in the choir brought her great joy. Margie returned to the Supply Center, after a 15 year hiatus, to resume her "old" job until her retirement in 1993.

Margie lived with dementia for the last 8 years. After her beloved Clyde passed away in 2008, Margie moved to Charlottesville near family.

Margie was also predeceased by her sister Dolores Forbes and her brother James Hughes. She is survived by her brother and his wife Joe and Pat Hughes; her daughters Susan Park and Cathy Giles, their husbands Richard Park and Michael Giles, grandchildren Amelia and Mariel Park, Alec, Christian and Baylie Giles.

A funeral Mass will be held at St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Virginia Beach on Saturday November 16 at 10:30 a.m. with a reception following.
