Teena Hughes April 17, 1958 - March 31, 2024

Teena Marie Hughes of Portland, OR passed away at home March 31, 2024 surrounded by her loving family. She had bravely battled ovarian cancer for three years.
Teena was born on April 17, 1958 in Portland, OR to Shirley and George Schmidt. She grew up with three siblings (Larry, Glenda and Lisa) and attended Gresham High School (1976) and Mt. Hood Community College.  With a big heart and love for helping others, she spent over 30 years as a nurse at Fairlawn Nursing Home in Gresham.
Teena married Robert Charles Hughes of Portland in May, 1981, at St. Henry church in Gresham.  She loved being a wife and caring for her two sons, David and Jonathan.
Teena enjoyed cooking, crafts, watching movies, doing puzzles with Rob, hanging with her sisters and spending time with her two grandsons.  She loved to garden and watch wildlife; especially hummingbirds.
Teena drew deeper in her Christian faith throughout her cancer journey, and enjoyed reading her Bible and studying weekly with her daughter-in-law at Bible Study Fellowship. She is at home with the Lord in heaven – “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Teena was preceded in death by her parents, and is survived by her husband, two sons, brother and two sisters.
She will be remembered for her loving spirit, sense of humor and easy-going nature. She will be greatly missed.

    Teena was a wonderful person who always put the needs of others first before her own. Teena spent 30 years caring for people in their final stages of life including my father which gave me and my family great comfort. Teena was my sister-in-law so I was blessed to witness first hand how she spread her love to others. She will forever be in my heart and prayers forever.
