Marilyn Anne Hughes
January 16 1964 – November 15 2020

After a six month battle with Leukemia, Marilyn passed away peacefully with husband and children at her side.
Dear wife of Jeff Hughes and loving mother of Kara (20) and Jared (18).

Predeceased by her father Francis (Chip) Gauther and infant sister Mary Lynn.

Survived by her mother Margaret Gauthier of North Rustico PEI, sisters Lorna (Bobby) Gallant, Colleen (Kevin) Devlin, Theresa (Merton) Toombs and Angela (Darcy) MacLeod.

Loving daughter-in-law to Barb and Ken Wise, Sister-in-law to Joel and Shanyn Hughes.

Marilyn has worked at the Concordia Club in Kitchener in various roles for over 20 years and as an Educational Assistant for over 10 years in a few schools within Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Marilyn loved working with and helping children and enjoyed supporting her own through years of soccer, track, and cross country.

Marilyn believed in and talked to angels and now she is one. If you ever shared any personal struggles with her, you likely have an angel token that she gave you out of her pocket.

She will be greatly missed, but will always be with us.

As per Marilyn’s wishes, her ashes will be taken to PEI next summer. No other memorial has been arranged yet while the family reviews COVID restrictions and concerns.

Marilyn received several blood transfusion and blood products at several stages. Please go to www.blood.ca and book time to donate. You will make a difference in someone’s life.

I just want you to know I am one of many people she blessed with her angels. She was my confidante, my mentor, my teacher, my friend when I worked at the Blessed Sacrament as a newbie EA. She was such an angel to me and to the people around her - the kids adore her and love her! She would always tell me stories about her family, her children who she is proud of! Her great memories of the children she looked after. She was always patient with me, smiling. My heart sunk when I heard you passed away, I wasn't even able to pray for you. Marilyn, you left us, but the Heaven gained another angel. I love you and I am praying for your family. I will miss you Mrs. Hughes. :(

Angel and Jeff

I met Marilyn while working in the office at Concordia Club during Oktoberfest. She was a gentle soul, always smiling, and very supportive. She’ll be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to Jeff, Kara, and Jared during this difficult time. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

I was so sorry to hear about your loss. I spent many hours with Marilyn as a fellow parent at St. Paul school, and she was always quick to volunteer for everything, and gave it her all., no matter whether it was pulling weeds or counting pizza money. We were also soccer parents together and she showed what a great Mom she was to her children. She will be missed by so many.
