Obituary for Brenda S. Hughes

Brenda S. (Stoneking) Hughes, 58, of Holbrook, passed away on February 27, 2022 in her home with her loving family by her side.

Brenda was born May 5, 1963 in Lima, OH to James (Marsha) Stoneking and the late Lena (Bell) Stoneking.

At 16 she married her high school sweetheart, Kenneth W. Hughes, on January 28, 1980.

Brenda was a member of the First Assembly of God Church in East View and a member of the Deeper Still organization, helping heal abortion wounded hearts. She put God first and family second in every life scenario. She had a heart for ministry and her love for Jesus was contagious to every person she met. She raised her kids and their friends in church. Her reach goes far beyond what she could see. Brenda was a devoted housewife and mother, sure to make every day in her home a special one. She loved to vacation, whether a simple weekend camping trip or a week cruise in the Caribbean. She was always the life of the party!

Brenda was the best friend to her husband and all three daughters. When they called, she came. She spent several days, sick herself, in hospitals with grandkids, on trips to Disney World, Boston and Philadelphia or just having family days in one of their homes – always with food!

In addition to her husband and father, Brenda leaves behind three daughters; Nina (Bill) Crowe, of Carmichaels; Alisha (Jeremiah) Kiger, of Holbrook; and Kasandra (Taylor) Knowles, of Cheat Lake, WV; grandchildren Dakota Crowe, Emma Crowe, Micah Crowe, Brooke Knowles, Audrey Kiger, Raeleigh Crowe, Nathan Knowles, and Chase Knowles; siblings Randy (Maureen) Stoneking, of Spraggs; Dan (Jodie) Stoneking, of Waynesburg; and Malinda (Duck) John, of Holbrook; among several nieces and nephews.

Friends and family will be received Wednesday, March 2, 2022 from 2-8 PM at Kesterson-Rush Funeral Home, LLC. 3275 W. Roy Furman Hwy., Rogersville, PA 15359; Telephone: 724 499 5181. A funeral service will be held Thursday, March 3, 2022 at 1 PM at the First Assembly of God Church 4131 W Roy Furman Hwy, Waynesburg, PA 15370 with Josh Koss and Pastor Jim Galbraith co-officiating. Burial will follow at Pine Bank Cemetery in Gilmore Township.
