Posted in Rushford Obituaries

Thelma B. Hughes, 97, of Houston, Minn. died on Friday, November 1, 2013, at Valley View Healthcare and Rehab in Houston.

Thelma was born on August 10, 1916, in Fillmore County, Minn. to Hans and Emma (Carlson) Overland. She graduated from Rushford High School in 1936. On October 16, 1937, she was united in marriage with Robert C. Hughes. She and her husband farmed in the Money Creek area from 1941 until 1960, when the couple moved to Houston where Robert operated a filling station. Thelma worked at Skifton’s General Store in Houston for several years. She was a member of Cross of Christ Lutheran Church in Houston and was a Cub Scout leader. She enjoyed making lefse and doing handy work, but most of all she enjoyed being a loving mother, grandma and great-grandma.

She is survived by four children: Dan (Rose Marie) Hughes of Rochester, Minn., Darrell Hughes of Houston, Minn., Dee Ann (Dennis) Pettyjohn of Owatonna, Minn., and Douglas Hughes of Rushford, Minn.; nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.

Thelma was preceded in death by her husband, parents, a brother and a sister.

The funeral service was on Tuesday, November 5, at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with the Rev. Lane Zaffke officiating. Visitation was one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial was in the Stone Church Cemetery in Houston.

The family prefers memorials directed to Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, Valley View Healthcare and Rehab or to the donor’s choice.
