It is with great sadness that Hereford Residential College marks the loss of our longtime and beloved Office Manager, Terry Hughes.
Terry passed away on September 13, 2018 surrounded by family and loved ones. Born on December 29, 1955, in Bluefield, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Frank L. Farmer and Mary Katherine Lawson Varacalli. Terry graduated from Albemarle High School and attended Piedmont College.
Terry was a loyal member of the UVA staff for over 30 years, and was the inaugural College Administrator for Hereford since its opening in 1992. At Hereford, she was always a welcoming presence in the Hub, where students would often come by to pick up forms, grab some snacks, and simply “hang out” with Terry.
She was a resident of Nellysford in Nelson County, Virginia, and lovingly referred to her home as the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Terry attended the Greater Baptist Church in Afton and Hebron Baptist Church.
A memorial service will be held at Rockfish Valley Baptist Church at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 18, 2018. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Wells/Sheffield Funeral Chapel, Lovingston (434) 263-4097.
