Darline A. Hughes, 95, Spencer

A memorial service for Darline A. Hughes was held Friday, Aug. 4, 2023, at the Warner Funeral Home in Everly.

Darline Alma was born in Laurens on Nov. 28, 1927, the only child of Oscar and Alma (Wenell) Johnson. She grew up in the Albert City area surrounded by many cousins as both of her parents came from families of 10 and 11 children. Family ties and reunions were always very important to her, and she was very proud of her Swedish heritage. She was baptized and confirmed in the local Evangelical Covenant Church, and she graduated from Albert City High School in 1945.
