Kaye Vaden Hughes was born July 10, 1945 in Wisconsin, and grew up near Salisbury, NC and Norfolk, VA. She spent her adult life in Raleigh, NC.
After completing doctoral studies in French at Duke University, Kaye taught French at NC State for close to forty years. She also enjoyed a trip to France where she learned more about their beautiful culture.
For most of her life, Kaye enjoyed walking. She chose walking as her means to get most anywhere she wanted to go, leaving the car in the driveway.
She was always a lover of nature and especially enjoyed watching, listening and talking to, and feeding the birds who came to visit her. She even had birds, who recognized her, and would come up to the porch and beg.
Kaye was preceded in death by her parents, Hansel and Edith Hughes, and her brother, David. She will be so missed by her close friends and in-laws. Her close friends are thanked for the love and care they gave to Kaye.
After a sudden illness, Kaye died peacefully at Hospice House on December 24, 2023.
