Marjorie Hughes (Valliant)
Passed away peacefully at the Sunrise Senior Residence in Oakville, Ontario on Thursday, May 3, 2018. Marjorie May (Valliant) Hughes, in her 100th year. Beloved wife of the late Carman Hughes. Loving mother of Carolyn (Walter) Tuohy, Gregory (Nancy) Hughes and Christopher (JoAnn) Hughes. Cherished grandmother of Laura and Kevin Tuohy, Scott and Tyler Hughes, and Lindsay and Spencer Hughes. Dear great-grandma to Finn Tuohy, Emily DuBois, Rhys Tuohy, Pyper Tuohy, Pearson Hughes, Weston Hughes and Bowen Hughes. Predeceased by her sister Doris Dale (nee Valliant) and her parents Emmerson and Ada May Valliant (nee Miller).
Marjorie's gracious manner and generous spirit endeared her to the many friends she made throughout her life - from the first years of her marriage in a wartime posting in Fort McLeod, Alberta through her life with Carman in Brockville and into her years of widowhood in Oakville, most recently at Sunrise. She will be fondly and lovingly remembered.
