Rebecca Y. Hughey (Becky), 71, beloved wife of 47 years to Stephen Hughey, entered fully into the presence of the Lord on Friday, May 6, 2022.
Born and raised in Greenville, SC, she was the daughter of the late Elijah “Bob” and Grace Yarbray.
Becky was a strong Christian who loved the Lord, her family, church, and community. As a graduate of Parker High School, she pursued a career with BellSouth for many years. She was known for her strong work ethic, professionalism, and sincere customer relationships. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Becky. She loved reading, spending time at the beach, and thinking of ways to make others smile. If anyone close to her experienced a hardship, she was quick to find a way to help. Becky never met a stranger and all who crossed her path received her generous, abundant, and consistent love. For Becky, her greatest blessing was her family, especially her grandchildren. She found it a privilege and honor to proudly proclaim the name, “Grand B”. She attended Newspring Church and enjoyed volunteering in the children’s ministry after retirement. Her memory and spirit will never be forgotten and her legacy of unconditional love will continue to live on through her loved ones.
In addition to her loving husband, she is survived by her son, Kyle Hughey (Kristin); her four grandchildren, Lola, Greta, Foxx and Francie Hughey; and her brother, Buck Yarbray (Lynda).
A memorial service will be held Wednesday, May 11, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. at Thomas McAfee Funeral Homes, Downtown.
