Mae “Lucy” Hughes
Mae “Lucy” Hughes was born in Ashland City, Tn. on September 21, 1946.
Due to a tragic parental accident, she was raised by her aunt and uncle, Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Schipani of Nashville, Tn.
She came to love and appreciate their kindness so much, she always referred to them as her parents and their sons (Joe & Pat) as her brothers.
Lucy was an L.P.N. for several years, and graduated from the Methodist School of Nursing on Dec. 17, 1982. She then spent 26 years as an R.N. at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center (O.R.) in Memphis.
She loved to travel and was very proud of the fact that she had visited every state.
Lucy is survived by her husband Reed; daughter, Shanon Kruse; grandchildren, Nichole Affre, Travis Kruse, Kathrine Kruse, Joseph Purtle, Dusty Box, Brianna Scott, David Hughes; great-grandchildren, Alexia Affre, Mason Affre, Kaeva Kruse; brothers, Joe and Pat Schipani. She was predeceased by her mother, Cora Jane Driver, and her aunt and uncle, Joseph and Mattie Schipani.
Lucy was truly loved by many and her legacy of kindness and caring about other people first will long endure in the hearts and minds of her family and friends.
The family will receive friends from 9:30 a.m. until the memorial service at 10 a.m. on Thursday, April 27th at Munford Funeral Home-Munford Chapel.
