Marie L. Hughes

Services will take place Saturday for Marie L. Hughes, who passed away peacefully Dec. 28, 2005, at her home in Chimney Rock, Stateline, Nev.

Marie was born April 5, 1930, in Santa Cruz, Calif., to Abramo and Margaret Locatelli. She graduated from Boulder Creek High School in Boulder Creek, Calif., where she was class valedictorian. She attended San Jose State University in San Jose, Calif.

Marie had been a resident of Stateline since 1966, and she and her husband have many real estate holdings as well as many friends in the Carson Valley. She was a teller at First Interstate Bank, Stateline branch, for 24 years, starting in 1969. Marie was always the teller of choice for her many customers at FIB. First and foremost, she was devoted to her family.

Marie gardened with her mother at an early age. Her “green thumb” and her love for gardening were reflected in her yard as well as her children’s yards. Her Italian roots made Marie’s cooking creative and unique. This will truly be missed.

She is survived by her loving husband of 56 years, Charles Hughes of Stateline; sons, Jim Hughes of Telluride, Colo., and David Hughes of South Lake Tahoe; son and daughter-in-law, Andy and Corby Hughes of Minden, Nev.; and daughter, Janet Hughes of Carson City, Nev.; grandchildren, Megan, Shelby and Katelyn Francouer and Jordan, Savannah, Allie, Connor, Chandler and Preston Hughes; sister, Emily Locatelli of Boulder Creek; brother, Andrew Locatelli and family of San Jose, Calif.; and extended family in northern Italy. She was preceded in death by her mother and father; and son, Robert, at 6 months of age.

Services will begin at noon Saturday at Our Lady of Tahoe Catholic Church on Elks Point Road in Round Hill, Nev. She will be laid to rest at Genoa Cemetery, Genoa, Nev.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations in Marie’s memory be made to the Barton Hospital Foundation Hospice Fund, P.O. Box 7316, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96158.

Arrangements are by Walton’s Funeral Home in Carson City, Nev.
