Obituary of Elizabeth Hughes
Hughes, Elizabeth C. (nee D'Aiello), 77, died on Thursday, April 5, 2018. Mrs. Hughes was born in Newark and has been a lifelong resident of Lyndhurst. She was a Librarian for over 30 years with the Lyndhurst Public Library. Elizabeth is survived by her beloved husband of 58 years, William J. Hughes, by her loving children: William Hughes, Jr. & his wife, Jean, Pamela Hughes & her husband, Marcin, Laura Mc Mullin & her husband, Richie, Nicholas Hughes, Sean Hughes, Christian Hughes & his wife, Victoria, and Darius Hughes & his wife, Karen, by her dear grandchildren: Genevieve, Connor, Sage, Isabella, Billy, Olivia, Ethan, Reilly, Trinity, Nathaniel, Christian, Brie and Fiona, by her sisters, Mary Ellen Castrovinci, Vatina Hamilton and her brother, Nicholas D'Aiello. Elizabeth was a proud Italian-American woman who loved her husband, family and often expressed her love through her wonderful cooking and baking skills, especially through her home-made macaroni, pizza gain, wheat pies and fried cakes! As a person who celebrated life, she loved to host fun-filled New Years Eve and graduation parties, as well as to travel: to Italy to view the waters of Venice from one of her favorite places, the Piazza San Marco; to Florida to hang with Minnie and Mickey in Disney; or to walk, hand in hand with her husband, on the pink sand beaches of Bermuda. Elizabeth, who was loved dearly, will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
