Christina Annacone Hughes of Peekskill, New York passed away peacefully on July 28, 2020. She was 91 years of age.

Tina was a woman of strong Catholic faith, who instilled in her children a love of the arts; a strong sense of social justice and the equality of all people.

She was born in Peekskill on Nov. 8, 1928, the daughter of Thomas J. Annacone, a self-taught mechanical engineer and, Loretta Colucci Annacone, a seamstress. Her parents emigrated from Italy as young children in the early 1900s.

Tina was a 1946 graduate of Peekskill High School and worked for many years as the office manager for doctors David Lack and Lloyd Hoffman in Peekskill, before retiring at the age of 75.

She met her husband and lifelong love William "Bill" Hughes when Bill's twin brother, Walt, married Tina's aunt after the end of World War II. Bill worked for many years at Lakeland Lumber in Shrub Oak before passing in 1982. They enjoyed dining out, bingo, bowling and antiquing.

Tina is survived by a son and a daughter and their spouses: Carol Clingan, former director of the Mohawk Valley Library System, and her husband Tom of Cohoes, NY; and her son, William "Will" Hughes, a producer and professor of communication, and his wife, Beth, of Marlboro, NY.

In her later years Tina resided with her son and daughter-in-law. For the last five years, she was an active resident of Cortland Health Care, where she enjoyed painting, singing with the other residents, playing bingo and walking around the grounds of the nursing home.

She leaves behind five grand daughters: Victoria Clingan (Lundy Labuda); Carrie Clingan; Autumn Sage Hughes; Katharine Clingan and Alexandra Clingan.

She is also survived by her beloved sister, Frances Paulson of Montour Falls, NY, and, Frances’ children: George Paulson, Lois Rinzivillo and Jon Paulson; as well as her beloved brother, Dominic Annacone of East Hampton NY and his sons, Steve Annacone and Paul Annacone.

She was predeceased by another brother, Thomas Annacone, Jr., formerly of Somers and is survived by her sister-in-law, Carol Annacone, and their daughters, Meg and Beth.

She leaves behind many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at the Church of the Assumption in Peekskill on Saturday, August 1 at 10:00 AM, followed by interment in the Assumption Cemetery. Flowers are welcome or the family suggests contributions to The Field Library at Four Nelson Avenue, Peekskill NY 10566.
