She was born in Bumpass, Va. to the late Walter Lee Hicks and Gertrude Nicholas Hicks. Mrs. Luffsey spent most of her married life in Fairfax, Va. and later in Weeki Wachee, Fla.

She always loved a social gathering, especially if it included a glass of wine, and she had many friends. She also was a devoted member of both St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Springfield, Va. and Nativity Lutheran Church in Weeki Wachee.
Mrs. Luffsey was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Stith Luffsey; son, Dennis Glenn Luffsey; and her siblings, Corrine Winston, Lois Perkins, Elsie Bumgarner, Milton Hicks, and Walter Garland Hicks.
She leaves behind her loving daughter, Melinda Jones; son-in-law, Jack Jones; grandchildren, Jack (Lauren) Jones, Scott, and Kelly; and great-grandchildren, Griffin, Charlie, and Jackie.
A memorial service will be held at a later date at Nativity Lutheran Church in Weeki Wachee.
