Nina Vee Hughes

Our beautiful Mother, Grandmother, and Sister, Nina Vee Bundy Hughes passed away October 30, 2016, surrounded by her family. Nina Vee was born April 12, 1939, in Mt. Trumbull, Arizona, to Chester Marion and Genavieve Bundy.  Nina Vee was the ninth of seventeen children born to Chester and Genavieve.  She was always proud of being the ninth child as she had eight older siblings and eight younger siblings. Nina Vee was raised in Mt. Trumbull, Arizona, where she attended a one-room schoolhouse until the 8th grade. She married her eternal companion Alfred Jesse Hughes on February 17, 1956, in the St. George, Utah, Temple. They were blessed with nine children. Nina Vee was an excellent seamstress and homemaker. She loved being a mother but most of all she loved being a grandmother to her 45 grandchildren and 41 great-grandchildren. She always taught the gospel to her posterity, and she set an example by serving a mission at the age of 62 in the England, Bristol, Mission. Besides her family, her greatest love was the temple where she served as a worker for thirty-nine continuous years except during the time she served as missionary in England. Nina Vee is survived by her children Joeen (Kevin) Wilson, Rendon (Lorie) Hughes, Angaletta (Bryce) Mitchell, Rocinda (Daniel) Hansen, Chet (Vicki) Hughes, Wendy (James) Boone, Trina (Mathew) Jensen, Chuck (Minnie) Hughes, and Klint (Lacie) Hughes along with five sisters Ila May, Bonnie (Allen), Lynna Rue (Mike), CloElla (Dan), JoEtta (Steve) and three brothers Owen (Judy), Mark (Leslie), and Eddie (Connie).  She was preceded in death by her husband, one granddaughter (Ashley), and eight siblings.
