How Did We Do?

Winona,
Evelyn Agnes Hughes, 95, of Sugar Loaf Senior Living and formerly of St. Charles died Wednesday, August 2nd at Lake Winona Manor.
Evie was born May 9, 1922 in Winona to Anthony and Rose (Wojciechowski) Bambenek. She attended St. Casmir's School where she also received First Holy Communion and was Confirmed. Evie and Gordon Hughes were married September 21, 1940 in Winona, where they made their home until moving to St. Charles in 1959. For many years she refinished and re-upholstered furniture. She was also an excellent seamstress, sewing drapes and making many beautiful quilts. Her quilts keep many people warm to this day. Evie helped care for friends and family when needed. Gordon died in 1997. Evie moved to Sugar Loaf Senior Living in 2013 where she was happy to be back by her beloved Lake Winona.
Survivors include her four children; Gordie (Geri) Hughes of Missoula, MT, Jane (Don) Severson of Chatfield, David (Jackie) Hughes of Culver City, CA and John Hughes of Rochester, nine grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and three brothers; Joseph Bambenek, Tony (Barbara) Bambenek and Jerry Bambenek, and many dearly loved nieces and nephews. In addition to Gordon, she was preceded in death by eight siblings; Isabelle Beeman, Ruth Maas, Rosebud Dorn, Emily Bambenek, Violet Werda, Fred, Frank and Donald.
Funeral services to remember Evie's life will be 11 a.m. Saturday, August 26th at Hoff Celebration of Life Center in Goodview with Reverend James Berning officiating. Burial will be next to Gordon in St. Mary's Cemetery, Winona. Friends may call from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.

Evelyn and Gordy were so nice to me at the time of my dad, Del's death in 1973. I remember going to their house and making a jewelry christmas tree with lights. Gordy cut out the board, covered it with felt and we glued on all kinds of jewelry. I still have it, and will always remember their kindness.

I named my first daughter Evelyn after getting to know your Evelyn. I was a lifeguard and loved chatting with her as she'd swim her laps every day. She was the cutest 70-something swimmer I ever saw...swimming often in a circle so she could talk to others.
Your mother/grandmother was a wonderful lady...I truly adored her.
My sympathies,
Katie Goldsmith

Evie...... You were Dad's " Angel" for many years when we lived in St Charles, and now I am certain he greeted you with " Hi Angel, we have been waiting for you!" I have so many memories of all the things George's Angel did for him when I had to be gone. You dear lady, you shall be missed but now you are home with Gordie and all tbose others that have gone before you. And YOU now have your angel wings, Angel ! Aren't you so lucky! Love you dear Angel! As only you would get away with calling me love from........ Barbie
