Joan Hughes

Obituary of Joan Evelyn Hughes

It’s with mixed emotions that we announce the peaceful passing of JOAN EVELYN HUGHES, at Central Haven Care Home, an amazing 95 years young. “Always Smiling  Always Laughing!”

Joan is survived by son: Edward (Mildred, Colin/Liz, great grandsons Andrew & Matthew PETERBOROUGH, ONT, Ryan/Roxane, great granddaughter Kelly, SWITZERLAND)

Daughter: Linda (Brian, Chris/Krissy, great grandsons Myles, William & Walter, SASKATOON)

Son: David (Debbie, EDMONTON, Paul/Melissa great grandchildren, Brittany (great great grandson Elijah), Nicholas & Lily; Sarah/Richard and great granddaughter Carly, WINNIPEG) Grandsons: Jason and great grandson Austin, SASKATOON, Kevin, SASKATOON

Son: Andrew (Shannon, Amanda, Michael/Jacey, great grandsons Kevvin, Xander & Linken, SASKATOON).

One brother Arthur (Pam); as well as numerous nieces and nephews in England.

Mum and Dad were married March 25, 1950; they celebrated 47 years before Stan passed on April 8, 1997. Also predeceased by her granddaughter Heather, June 9, 1993

 Mum, Dad & a young Edward immigrated from London, England in 1956, and settled in Saskatoon soon after. Mum was always a "spitfire" and enjoyed joking and laughing with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her sense of humor will be remembered as much as her rebellious attitude. Contrary to what she taught her children, Mum believed she could eat her dessert before eating her dinner. One memory that will endure with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren is her famous boxing moves and the patented "left hand", and her giving us a bunch of fives!  We will miss that twinkle in her eyes, the mischievous smile & laugh forever. We miss you and love you.

Due to Covid 19, there will be no service at this time, hopefully this summer when we can all be together.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to: Central Haven Backyard Beautification project, 1022 Avenue I North. Saskatoon, SK. Canadian MPS Society 218-2055 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC V5N 0C7. Or a Charity of your choice.

 Mum & Dad are together again.
