HUGHSON: Isabelle Mae (Craig) Hughson better known as Jane Hughson passed away May 6, 2016 at Fairview Home. She was born July 17, 1919 on the family farm at Sinclair, Mb. She was one of 13 children of Dick and Bertha Craig. She left Sinclair as a young child and went to schools at Sunrise (near McCreary, MB) and Norfolk (at Pine Creek). It was in the Pine Creek district where she met and married Harold Hughson on November 11, 1941. They farmed in the Pine Creek district until 1972 when they moved to Gladstone, MB. They raised five children while in that area. Mom was always involved in every community she lived in. The Ladies Aide at Pine Creek, quilting, sewing and knitting for service personnel during the war years. She was a 4-H leader for many years, teaching sewing and helping her sons in the beef and swine clubs. Many hours were spent practicing marching in the farm yard at Pine Creek prior to fair days at Portage and MacGregor. When Mom and Dad moved to Gladstone she became involved in the Legion #110 Ladies Auxiliary, taking most of the executive chairs throughout the years. She was also instrumental in establishing the Gladstone Museum in the Old Train Station House, plus she was involved with the erecting of the “Happy Rock” on the outskirts of town. Mom moved into Legion#110 apartments after Dad passed away and she could often be found in the Common Room working on one of her infamous quilts. She was very generous with her quilts, giving each of her children one or two and all 8 grandchildren received a quilt as a wedding gift or just because she loved them. If she wasn't quilting she was knitting afghans which she gave away readily for raffles or gifts. Mom was also a great seamstress, sewing for many people in the community plus her family especially grandkids. She sewed wedding dresses for her daughter, her daughter- in-law and a niece. She also sewed numerous bridesmaid dresses. Mom will be remembered for her baking skills, especially her butter tarts and her “Delicious Pickle” rightly named by her grandkids. Mom moved into Hobbs Manor in Brandon in 1996, where she continued quilting for a few more years. At 93 she was walking around a city block, weather permitting. In October 2013, Mom moved into Fairview Care Home where she enjoyed her many outings for ice cream and lunches or just van rides.
