Anne Hughes Straub

Staff report

Anne Elizabeth Hughes Straub, 89, of Paducah, died Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at Lourdes hospital.

She was born in Louisville on December 18, 1924 to the late Frank Collins Hughes and Ethel Lee McKeldin Hughes. As the youngest of 5 children she received a BA Degree from the University of Louisville. Her father died when she was very young and her mother worked as a doctor's assistant to be sure all her children had the opportunity of attending college. Inspired by her mother, Anne and her husband Earl helped all of their children also attain college degrees and more.

Anne taught at several schools and performed private tutoring of various aged children.

At various times of her life, she sewed, needle pointed and even held seasonal employment at a downtown Louisville department store teaching bow tying with ribbon. She also was an avid golfer.

Anne was Presbyterian and attended church regularly everywhere she lived as long as she was physically able. She enjoyed time spent with her grandchildren, was an avid reader, frequent player of computer games, individual and on-line. At age 70, in 1995, she decided the world was leaving her behind and therefore asked her son to take her computer shopping. They bought a computer, set it up and Rick left telling her the best way to learn was to do, and in no time she was extremely computer literate.

Surviving are three children, E. Frederick "Rick" Straub and wife Kris of Paducah, Janet Straub Peters of Dallas, Texas and Barbara Straub Jones and husband Harry Earl Jones, Jr. of Castle Rock, Colo.; six grandchildren, Barton Frederick Peters, Nicholas George Peters (wife, Elizabeth Hoag Peters), Eric Straub, Jason Straub, Keldin Patricia Jones, H. Scott Jones (wife, Michelle Jones); and four great-grandchildren, Anne Louise, Andrew Gerald and Amelia Frederick Peters and Chloe Lynn King.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl Frederick Straub.

Memorial services will be held Friday evening at 7 p.m. at Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah with Pastor Paul Donner officiating. Memorial visitation will begin at 5 p.m. Friday.

Anne Straub had many favorite charities. We feel that she will be honored by having her friends and family choose their own charity as a remembrance to her.
