Obituary

We lost our sweet Betty Lou Hughes Hilton, 86, of Thomasville, on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, in the care of Special Nurses – Chaplain Emma at Hospice of Davidson County Hinkle House.

Born September 24, 1937, in Davidson County, she was the daughter of the late Hal Hughes and the late Jessie Parrish Hughes.  She climbed the mountain to meet Our Lord Jesus.  She always said he would send Angel Grandma Parrish to come for her – hold her hand, as she did when she was a child to protect her!  She loved to play guitar of which she learned on Uncle Bruce’s.  Thanks to Grandma for getting it out for her – when he was at work! Betty referred to herself as a free spirit.  She loved working in her yard – keeping it to Perfection as she did her home.

Betty worked at Cone Manufacturing (Prelude) for twenty-one years as office manager and was a member of Pleasant Grove Methodist Church.  She had a quote she said often “Music and beautiful flowers are God's gift to the soul”.

She is survived by sister cousin, Dianne Parrish Carrick, who has been by her side through her cancer battles; special sister cousin, Wanda Younts Hill and husband Bobby, cousin, Harold Parrish and wife Joyce; brother Hal Hughes; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jan Perry Hilton, and sister, Katherine Hughes.  She wanted to honor memories of Ronnie Sechriest, Miller Shelton, Tony Brinkley, who were so Very Special to her.

No services are planned at this time.

Thanks to her neighbors, Michael, David, Joe, Terry & Gloria, Terry & Cindy, Jeannie & Kevin, Murphy’s and Bowers who always looked out for her and helped her when there was a need.  She leaves her love in the Hearts Who Loved Her.
