  1. Our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Hughes’ family at this time. We wish you peace and comfort in your memories. Dr. Hughes was an extraordinary individual.

    My family was very fortunate to have had Dr. Hughes as our doctor for 20 years. She delivered my babies and took excellent care of them and me. No question was ever too stupid to ask. She was always patient and practical with her help. One of my most treasured items is the form letter sent to me about her retirement. Dr. Hughes took the time to add a personal note from her at the bottom of it. She is sorely missed but we rejoice that she is now at rest.

  2. Carrie, Mary and family

    Our sincere condolences for your loss. I will remember Sheila for her gentle nature, and forever remember her joyful smile. Always a quiet observer at family events, behind which lay a thoughtful intelligent strength.

    Thinking of you all, and sending love

    Cousin Sue and family
