Trudy Ann Hughes

September 30, 1952 — February 27, 2024


Trudy Ann Hughes, 71, of Greenbrier, Tennessee, passed away on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, in Nashville.  Born September 30, 1952, in Nashville, she was the daughter of the late Walter Dickson and Dorothy Ragan Dickson.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Wesley Dickson.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Jimmy Hughes; son Kevin (Karen) Hughes; daughter Keri (Danny) Thompson; grandchildren Jordan Justice, Brandon Justice, Kristin Avaritt and Jamie Avaritt and was “Nee Nee” to many more; great grandson Weston Fletcher.

Trudy was raised in the Goodlettsville area.  She attended Goodlettsville High School and graduated from the Watkins Institute.  She was an accountant for Kenneth Duncan Painting for over 30 years.

Trudy’s passion was her horses and the horse show community.  She loved showing horses, barrel racing, as well as designing custom made rodeo shirts.   Her family will remember her as an outspoken spitfire who took care of everyone she knew.  She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and as of very recently, great grandmother, who will be missed dearly.

A memorial gathering will take place at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home in Goodlettsville from 12 pm noon until 8 pm on Saturday, March 2.  An informal celebration of her life will be held in the spring.
