Proverbs 31-10: “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”
Terri L. Hughes, of Elizabethton, went to Heaven to be with the Lord on Monday, September 5, 2022, after a short battle with cancer.
Terri was a graduate of Cloudland High School. She was a homemaker who loved the Lord, loved taking care of her family, and her furry companions, Scruffy and Rowdy. She loved working in her flowers and was the first to help anyone in need. Surely our loss is Heaven’s Gain.
Terri attended Doe River Baptist Church.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Maxine Freeman Arwood; uncles, James and Luther Arwood; a sister, Peggy Arwood McMahan; a brother, Don Arwood; her aunts, Gladys Street and Juanita Honeycutt; and a special cousin, Connie Gouge.
Those left to share her memory include her husband and best friend, Rocky Hughes; The Twinkle in her eye, her son Joshua; beloved sisters, Angie (Jim) Tribble and Jeanette (Roy) Street; a special cousin, Steve (Pooh Bear) Arwood; a special sister-in-law, Ruth Smith and Desarry; a special aunt, Gearldine Arwood; two special cousins, Clint Gouge and Cole Gouge; a very special niece, Lori (Thomas) Osborne and their children; and her nephews, Cody Street and Scotty Arwood.
