Irene M. Hughes

AGE: 90 •

Irene M. Hughes, 90, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 9, 2017, at Bartley Healthcare in Jackson, NJ. A longtime resident of Northeast Philadelphia, Irene was an avid Phillies, Eagles, and Sixers fan, and a lover of cheesesteaks, Tastykakes, soft pretzels, and trips down the shore. She loved the jitterbug and playing cards with friends. At various times she was a faithful member of St. Ambrose, The Resurrection, and Holy Innocents St. Paul Episcopal churches.

Irene was a devoted wife, a proud mother, and (as many a hairdresser will attest) an even prouder grandmother. She loved her family deeply, and she will be sorely missed.

Irene is survived by her husband, Norman Hughes; son, Dr. Edward Hughes and wife, Margaret Hughes; daughter, Kathleen Whall and husband, Joseph Whall; granddaughter, Kristin Hughes and husband, Adam Fluke; grandson, James Whall and wife, Kelli Comegys; and granddaughter, Julia Whall.

Services were held on Saturday, April 15th. Contributions in her memory may be made to the , 399 Market St., Suite 102, Philadelphia., PA 19106 or to Holy Innoncents St. Paul Episcopal Church, 7001 Torresdale Ave, Philadephia, PA 19135.
