HUGHES, Judy May (née Miller)

Born on September 7, 1953. Passed away March 17, 2020.

Much loved wife of Michael (Mick).
Cherished memories. Forever in my heart. Till we meet again.

Sudden Accident.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands at rest.
It broke our hearts to see you so,
God only takes the best.
They say that memories are golden.
Well maybe, that is true.
But we never wanted memories, we only wanted you.
We will always love you Judy.

  11. Judy, where do i start?
    you were and still are an amazing, smart and kind hearted lady, you were there for me when everything came tumbling down, it brakes me heart to know that you have left us.
    every time i think of you i can only remember you upset once in the many years of knowing you, frankly i don’t think many other people have seen you without a smile.
    i love and miss you very dearly Judy…

  14. Our condolences to Judy’s Family. Judy was one in a million! Always looking out for everyone else before herself. Not only did our family know her through IKPS, I also had the pleasure of working with Judy as she delivered the crossing safety program within my kindergarten sessions over the past several years. I will never forget her dedication, professionalism, positive interactions with the children or her laugh! RIP Beautiful lady. Love Kathryn Harrowfield and Meghan Bate

You did so much for the Inverloch Primary School and knew every child, parents, sibling and grandparent’s names and were so friendly to all.
