Marjorie (Margie) Ann Hughes
Marjorie (Margie) Hughes was promoted to Heaven on April 11, 2023. She maintained wit and humor until the end.
Born December 22, 1931, to Victor and Cecilia Lesavich of Junction City, she skated and ran faster than the boys when she was a kid, became fascinated with Bible study at a young age, and delighted in hopping the train on Saturdays to watch double and triple features. She married Mark Thomas (Tommy) Hughes in October 1950, and they resided in Milladore. They welcomed a son, Thomas Michael, in September 1951. They had several children thereafter who sadly were not carried to term or passed along within days of birth.
Margie was overjoyed with the birth of her first granddaughter, Heather Rae, in Spring 1975 – and a second, Katie Colleen, in early 1979. She absolutely poured her love into her family. While admittedly not perfect, she was proud to be Polish, could chat with anyone, find laughter in most situations, and enjoyed ballgames and hockey games. She loved shopping, sweets, reading, playing cards, catching up over coffee, listening to Marty Robbins, and a good brandy old fashioned. She was loud, Catholic, and passionate. She could not sing a lick, yet sang every song at church. She adored her great grandchildren – Sam, Ryan, and Lily Quackenboss, and Cheyenne and Isabella Young – and made the best banana splits, played vicious games of crazy eights, and delighted in their adventures.
An incredibly upbeat woman with a zest for life, Margie always focused on the positive and was quick to share a kind word – though she certainly had a feisty side as well. Despite so much loss in her life, she never let it shadow her love for those around her. She brought energy and joy to everything she did and was always willing to lend a hand to others. Every conversation, voicemail, and card ended with an “I love you” and “God bless you.”
Margie will be remembered and cherished for her joyful heart, unconditional love, strong faith, resilience, and keen fashion sense – she was beautiful inside and out.
A private burial will be held at a later date. To honor Margie, please consider finding opportunities to make a joyful impact in someone’s life. Check in on a loved one, dedicate a mass, light a candle, send a card, say a prayer, or simply express a kind word for somebody in need of one. Talk too loudly, laugh too loudly, find the fun in all you do.
Marjorie Ann Hughes | December 22, 1931 – April 11, 2023. We love you and may God bless you – always and in all ways.
