Memorial Tribute to Jill Noreen Hughes
Jill Noreen Hughes wife of Donald Hughes Jr. mother of Landon Hughes, Lamika Hughes, and Angela Jordan (Maverick Jordan), grandmother of 10, great grandmother of 1, was our precious gift from Heaven. Mom always had so much beauty, grace, love, and patience, and absolutely loved and adored her family. She touched many hearts in many ways not only as an educator but always putting her family and loved ones first.
Mom was a teacher for over 30 years before moving to an Administrator in the Moberly Public School system for 7 years before retiring. Even after she retired, she still never gave up working. She was active with our church here at Grant Lovell AME as the treasurer, and a Steward as she truly loved her church and church family. Also, after retirement she worked at the Moberly Public Library, she headed the Spartan Tutoring after-school program not only in Moberly but in surrounding towns as well as was the after-school Math Coach, while also finding time to be an instructor at the Moberly Area Community College and serving on the Community Betterment Board for the City of Moberly.
Jill Hughes cared for her students and felt that all could learn if she found the right approach in being able to reach out to them and teach them. She always said even the students that were more difficult to reach touched her heart in a special way.
Mom knew the children are our future leaders. Her motto was, we have a responsibility to teach them, so they are ready to assume their responsibility in the home, community, and the world.
Mom was a true Blessing to so many. I remember so many nights her doing homework with the grandkids at the kitchen table for hours. After they got older, they would sprint through the kitchen to avoid mom not having to do their homework with her, because it always had to be flawless and don’t let her find out you have a test to study for because yes she still believed in preparing flash cards.
Mom was not only a teacher in the classroom but taught each and everyone one of her children and grandchildren how to love God first. I have lost not only my mother, but my best friend, my ally, my supporter, my advisor, and my light at the end of a bad day. Her love for her family was impeccable and each and every day, I aspire and strive to be half the woman and mother she was. I know those are some big shoes to fill but know and trust that with her and the Lord guiding me nothing is impossible.
We thank you Lord, mom, and dad, for your continued guidance, protection, and love you extend to us each and every day and night and we love and miss you mom our beautiful Angel!

“She considers a field and buys it; with the fruits of her hands she plants a vineyard. She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong.”
