  • Minnie A. McCracken Hughes was born to Wilbur and Martha Lamb McCracken on March 20, 1912, in McDonald County. She died May 18, 2013, at the age of 101.
    Minnie married Ben Hughes Nov. 9, 1932. Together they milked cows and farmed, ultimately settling on a farm west of Neosho. Ben passed away Aug. 7, 1982.
    Minnie was predeceased by her parents; brothers Floyd, Vencil, Loren and LeRoy McCracken; and sister, Florence Capps.
    Minnie Hughes was a warm, loving, beautiful woman. A visit to Aunt Minnie's always included drinking coffee at the kitchen table beside the wood stove, watching birds through the picture window, looking at family albums and reminiscing about the "old days."
    Minnie was quietly laid to rest on May 22, 2013, at the Seneca Cemetery.
    Arrangements under the direction of Campbell-Biddlecome Funeral Home, Seneca.
