Heidi C. Hughes

October 25, 1970 – March 8, 2020

Coleman Funeral Home of Olive Branch

Mrs. Heidi Christopher Hughes, 49, passed away Sunday, March 8, 2020, at Methodist Hospice Residence in Memphis, TN. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. Coleman Funeral Home of Olive Branch is in charge of arrangements.

Mrs. Hughes was born October 25, 1970, where she grew up on her family’s farm. She was raised as a true country girl, and she loved anything and everything outdoors. However, her favorite thing was spending time traveling and hunting with her husband. She was also so proud to be a part of her family at Methodist University Hospital and Methodist Olive Branch Hospital. She worked there for over 20 years as a registered nurse. Above all, she never took a thing in this life for granted, and she enjoyed nothing more than being at home with her husband and her family of beloved pets.

Mrs. Hughes is survived by her husband, Tom Hughes of Hernando, MS; her parents, Don and Patty Christopher, both of Otterbein, IN; one sister, Edie (Aaron) Fisher of Fowler, IN; one brother, Jon (Kathryn) Christopher of Marietta, GA; three nieces, Emma Fisher of Fowler, IN, and Molly Christopher and Riley Christopher, both of Marietta; two nephews, Henry Fisher of Indianapolis, IN, and Ethan Fisher, Lakenheath AFB, England; her beloved pets, Jack, O.C., Cricket, and Winnie; and a host of wild turkeys.
