A memorial service and celebration of life were held Friday at the Hughson United Methodist Church for Anne R. Ferguson, 86, of Hughson. She died Jan. 2, 2011, two days before her 87th birthday.

On Jan. 4, 1924 Cecilia Rhea Anne Rush was born in Willow Springs, Mo, to Ray Alvin and Lucy Bugg Murphy Rush. She married the love of her life, John Carl Ferguson, Jr., in 1944 at the U.S. Naval Academy. Together they raised four children, moving to Orinda in 1959, and then to their almond ranch in Hughson in 1983. Anne was an active member of the choirs of the Lafayette-Orinda United Presbyterian Church and, later, the Hughson United Methodist Church. She enjoyed singing and creating art.

She is survived by her children, Carol Jancsi, Mary Monroe, and David Ferguson; and four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Carl and son John Carl Ferguson, III.

Remembrances may be sent to the Hughson United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 129, Hughson, CA 95326.
