To the Hughey family; On behalf of the Robison family, I wish to extend our deepest sympathy on the loss of Mrs. Hughey. She was my 1st grade teacher as well as lifelong neighbor and friend. She was sweet and loving and dearly loved. My mother, Lois Robison, asked me to extend her condolences as well for a friend of more than 60 years. May God Bless You. Mickie Robison Whitson

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Katherine Hughey.
I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet lady back in 1979 when I visited her relative, my friend Dian McDonald in Poteau.
I will always fondly remember Katherine's quiet wisdom, her kindness and gentle Southern voice.
With love and God bless you all.
