Eleanor Hughes Death, Obituary – Eleanor Marie “Ellie” Hughes, age 60, of 5425 State Route 36, Canisteo, New York, passed away on Thursday, January 12, 2023, at St. James Hospital, after a gallant battle against her disease. Eleanor Marie “Ellie” Hughes was a resident of Canisteo. Eleanor was a local of the Canisteo community. On June 9, 1962, she was welcomed into the world in Newark, New York, by her parents, Glen and Margie Petty. Her mother and father still live there. Ellie spent her whole youth in the sleepy New York town of Marion, where she also completed both her elementary and secondary education (class of 1982). It’s been six years since she made Canisteo her permanent residence, and she still considers it to be her home.
She was a loyal fan of various racing drivers, including Richard Petty, Kevin Harvick, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., amongst others. Ellie was her most genuine self when she was lending her culinary expertise to a good cause as part of a volunteer effort to raise money for a charitable organization. In addition to this, she had an interest in the traditions of the Native Americans, particularly the mythology that surrounded wolves. Her older brother, Bill Petty, along with both of her parents and both of her grandparents had already passed away before she was even born.
Jamie Hughes, Ellie’s husband of sixteen years at the time, submitted a divorce petition against her on February 8, 2001. Among the surviving members of the family are Kim (Jessie) Jones, Misty Woodems, Richard Petty of Marion, New York, and a few others.
Kim (Jessie) Jones and Misty Woodems both live in Kentucky. There are a significant number of aunts and nephews, in addition to four grandchildren, who have survived this family.
It was said that Ellie had asked for her own room in which she could spend all of her time in utter seclusion by herself. At the time that is most appropriate for such a gathering, a memorial service will be held in private for the family. The job of making the appropriate preparations has been delegated to the Dagon Funeral Home, which may be found in Hornell, New York at 38 Church Street.
