In Loving Memory ~
It is with profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Myra Hughes, nee Vandergronden, on September 24, 2023, at the age of 63.
Treasured wife of 22 years to Jeff, beloved daughter to Corrie, much loved sister to Marcel (Ronit), Yvonne (Andy), and the best Auntie to Sean (Jaime), Serena (Larry), Jocelyn (Gero), Ashley, and a fun great-aunt to Brayden, Lucas, Harper, and George.
She was very social and full of life, which led to her abundance of great friends, whom she cherished.
Myra recently retired from UFV to spend time with Jeff, her family, and friends. She had her hand in so many ventures; she was an avid painter, seamstress, crafter, and the ultimate baker of sweets, to name a few.
Myra was a nurturing person, and took great pride in being an active member of her neighborhood community, and always made sure everyone was taken care of. Her bright light and big heart left us too soon, but we will remember her warmth, love, and generosity.
Celebration of Life will be held on October 21st, 2023, from 1-4 p.m. at the Sandman Hotel Abbotsford, 32720 Simon Ave, Abbotsford, BC.
If you are so inclined, please wear pink, in honor of Myra's favorite color.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Society, SPCA, or a donation of your choice in her memory would be lovely.
