Marjorie E. Hughes Obituary
Marjorie E. Hughes, aged 88, passed away on Wednesday November 29, 2017 in her Norfolk, MA home. She was born in Englewood NJ to Louis and Mildred Schmieder and was the second of four children. When she was a child, her family maintained several orchards; as a young adult Marjorie worked as bank teller in Laconia, NH. Late in life, she told her youngest son that her real desire had always been to have and raise children in a loving home. Married to James E. Hughes in 1953, she bore four sons. Divorced in 1974, Marjorie was determined that her children should come home from school to find her there, and so, needing flexible work hours, became self-employed cleaning homes in the surrounding neighborhoods, work she did to perfection for clients who were loyal for decades. Marjorie maintained her home and raised her children as a single mother with uncommon determination and forthrightness at a time when divorce was not the norm. Her chief joys were home life with family, her church, flower arranging, and family photography. Remembered by her Norwell St. neighbors as an angel, she will be missed by all. Marjorie is survived by her sons Glenn, Tom, and John.
