Willa Faye Hughes

Willa Faye Hughes, 83, of Owensboro, passed away October 31, 2022, at Hermitage Care and Rehab. She was born September 14, 1939, in Lewisport, to the late Albert and Francis MacDaniel. Willa was a mother to 4 girls, a grandmother, and great-grandmother, and these titles were her biggest accomplishment. She adored her “precious” grandchildren and loved her family unconditionally, in the way that only a mother could. Willa could be described as a true “mama bear,” she was nurturing, loving, and giving. She will be greatly missed by her entire family.

In addition to her parents, Willa was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Raymond Hughes; and her sons-in-law, David Rupert and Mark Kelley.

She is survived by her daughters, Cathy Rupert, Liz Pandolfino, Donna (Steve) Pynn, and Jennifer Kelley; her 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; her siblings, Peggy (David) Cooper, Brenda Cameron, and Jody (Ruth) MacDaniel; and several nieces and nephews.

Services are private. Care by Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
