MADE EPHENIA ST. JOHN HUGHES
June 20, 1930 August 6, 1987
Maude Ephenia Hughes, affectionately known as "Recil", was
the ninth of ten children born to Mr. and Mrs. Sampson St. John in
Long Bay, Anguilla, on June 20, 1930. She is survived by her husband,
Charles Hughes, and her seven children. She was a faithful, loving wife
and mother. The door to her heart was open to all she came in contact
She was a member of the West End Methodist Church in Anguilla
until moving to St. Thomas in 1976. She was not only a member of
the church, but knew Jesus as a Lord and her personal Saviour.
In November, 1986, she became ill and it was discovered that
she was suffering from a fatal disease. In spite of vigorous treatment,
her health deteriorated. Maude was, however, able to enjoy a family
reunion, and during the months before her death she prepared to meet
her Saviour. I recall her last testimony, "It is well with my soul",
On August 6, 1987, she went to be with her Saviour, whom
she had long waited for.
Aunt Recil, you have really fought a good fight. Your sick
body is no longer but your soul is happy in the presence of the lord.
Rest in peace.
