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.
