Obituary

Roegean Hughes Speight

Roegean passed away on January 04, 2020 peacefully during her stay in long term care in Newport News, Virginia after several months of failing health. Roegean resided in Deltaville, Virginia next door to her daughter, Wandra Thornton.

Predeceased by her husband, Emory B. Speight on May 12, 2013, Roegean is survived by her son, William Ripley; daughter, Wandra Thornton; step children, Jennifer Bales and Wayne Speight; five grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

A poem from her first daughter-in-law Robin:

FOR NANA

A WIDOW LEFT WITH FOUR KIDS
BUT SHE SOMEHOW FOUND A WAY
STUDIED TO BECOME A NURSE
TO PROVIDE A BETTER DAY

MET E.B., HER FOREVER LOVE
THE FAMILY OF EIGHT MOVED IN
AND WITH THIS BLENDED FAMILY
HER NEW LIFE DID BEGIN

RV-ING TO LAKE GASTON
WATER FUN AND MORE
BUT LEFT THERE FOR DELTAVILLE
AND THE DAUGHTER SHE ADORED

SHE SUFFERED SO MUCH LOSS
TWO OF HER SONS WERE GONE
AND WE DID NOT REALIZE
SHE WOULD GO ALONG

SO WE SALUTE THE STRENGTH SHE HAD
AND REMEMBER EACH WHAT THEY WILL
BUT ALL OF OUR HEARTS HAVE HOLES IN THEM
THAT ONLY SHE COULD FILL

In lieu of flowers please donate to Hospice Community Care, Newport News, Virginia.
