15, 2015

Adella Hughes, 91, departed this life on October 15, 2015 to rejoin William Hughes, her husband of 55 years, and their beloved son Billy. She is also preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Mary Surovec as well as siblings, Paul, Emil, Rose, and Mary. Adella was an employee of the Rath Packing Company for almost 30 years and a devoted member of St. Christopher's Church for 36 years. She had been involved in several organizations including the Polka Club, SPJST Hall, Friendship Club, Time Out Club, and Dignity LIFT Program. She also loved to tend to her garden and enjoyed baking delicious strudels which were sought after every year by friends and family. Left behind to cherish her memory include her sister, Hattie Siegel, sister-in-law, Eileen Surovec, numerous nieces and nephews, and a host of friends including one very special friend, Rose Mitchell. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Legend Oaks for providing such compassionate care during Adella's last days especially Jesika Rucker, Billie Alfred, and Angela Cox. Visitation will be held at Forest Park Lawndale Funeral Home on Monday, October 19, from 5-9 with a rosary led by Sister Zachary. Service and Burial will take place on Tuesday, October 20, at St. Christopher Catholic Church celebrated by Father Paul and Father Jessie at 10:00am with a procession to the graveside following the church service. Serving as pallbearers will be Emil Surovec, Mike Paige, Rick Sims, Steve Callaway, Steven Callaway, and Bryan Callaway.
