Eileen Hughes Obituary

On Tuesday, October 10, 2023, Eileen (nee Bradley) Hughes, loving and devoted wife, and mother of three children, passed away at the age of 82 years old in Sun City West, Arizona.  Eileen was born on January 5, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York, to James and Josephine (nee Buckle) Bradley. Eileen was married to Daniel Hughes at St. Agatha’s Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn, New York, on October 28, 1961.  They raised two daughters, Karen and Denise, and son Daniel, in Bergen County, New Jersey, before moving to Phoenix, Arizona, in 1976, where they were joined by Dan’s brother Frank and wife Marge Hughes, and sister Joan (nee Hughes) and husband Bob Cottrell and their children. 

Eileen was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Harry Bradley, Dan’s six brothers (John, Martin, Joseph, Eugene, Frank, and James) and sisters Mary and Joan.  Eileen is survived by her sister JoAnn (nee Bradley) and Paul Milza, sister-in-law Maureen (nee Dillon) Bradley, brother-in-law Bob Cottrell, and her children, Karen and Thomas Wight, Denise and Kurt Ellingson, and Daniel and Yleana (nee Samaniego) Hughes, four grandchildren, Joseph and Becky (nee Higgins) Rose, Nikki (nee Rose) and Alika Francisco, Sam and Stephanie Hughes, and four great-grandchildren, McKenna Francisco, and Eliott, Lila and Jake Rose.

After husband Dan’s death, Eileen moved to Sun City West in 1998 where she made many friends and participated in community activities over the past twenty-five years.  Eileen’s faith was steadfast and formed the core of her character.  She volunteered at her Church and was an active parishioner throughout her life.

Eileen became the matriarch of the Hughes family in Arizona and was loved and respected by family and friends alike.  She loved spending time with her family and friends, playing cards, and was always laughing. It was a pleasure and a joy to be in her company.  She was an incredible lady and will be missed by all.
