Vada Earlene Hughes

May 10, 1938 –
 October 22, 2022


It is with great sadness that we report that on October 22,2022 Vada Earlene Hughes of McKinney, TX, peacefully passed away. She fought a very long and hard battle with lung disease. We will miss her terribly but we are comforted that Vada went to join her beloved husband, Roe Hughes, in heaven. Vada is survived by her three children, Lyn Hughes, (Byron King) of Greenville, TX, Roe Hughes III (Trey), Hughes of Plano, TX and Stephanie Hughes of McKinney, TX. Vada is also survived by her grandchildren Roe Hughes IV of Jurupa Valley, CA, Savannah Hughes of McKinney, TX and her great grandchild Luca Roe of McKinney, TX.

Vada was born at home on May 10, 1938, in Amarillo, TX to Julia and Earl Briscoe. She grew up in the Texas panhandle in the town of Memphis. She was lucky to be surrounded by a big family in Memphis including her grandparents and lots of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Vada met Roe Hughes a resident of Childress, TX and they married in September of 1953. On their wedding night, Roe pushed Vada around the town square of Memphis in a wheel barrel as tradition called for back then. That began their life of adventure together. They were married for 63 years before Roe passed away in December 2015.

Vada was always up for a new travel adventure with Roe and family. Whether it was camping in the Rocky Mountains or visiting Russia during the Cold War or an African photo safari they enjoyed their love of travel here and abroad. There were also many moves for Vada as Roe moved up the corporate ladder. They resided in Texas, Indiana, Illinois, California and Athens, Greece.

She was the best Mom, Yaya, aunt, and friend anyone could ask for. Vada will be missed by all who knew and loved her. A celebration of her life will be in the springtime of 2023. We will see you again, Mom!

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
