OBITUARY - ALYCE "MARIAN" (MALOY) CARR HUGHES

Alyce Marian HUGHES of Lenox, Iowa died September 6, 2006 at Spencer Hospital in Spencer, Iowa, while seeking to recover from a series of abdominal surgeries. Since April, 2006, Marian had been living at the Milford Nursing Center in Milford, Iowa, striving to return to her home in Lenox, Iowa. Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday, September 11, 2006 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Lenox. The celebrant will be Father Tan TRAN. Interment will be at Rose Hill Cemetery in Mount Ayr, Iowa at 1:30 p.m. Following the committal friends are invited to gather at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Mount Ayr for refreshments and fellowship. The Ritchie Funeral Home of Lenox is in charge of arrangements. Visitation will begin Sunday, September 10, 2006, from 4:00 to 8:00 with the family greeting friends from 6:30 to 8:00 and a Prayer Service at 7:00 p.m.

Marian was born October 29, 1916 to Flavel Baird MALOY and Irene (WILKINSON) MALOY at Redding, Iowa. She graduated from Redding High School in 1933, and from Northwest Missouri State Teachers College in 1937, with a Bachelor's degree in math, English and music education. She taught in Milford, Iowa, Spickard, Missouri and Chillicothe, Illinois. During World War II, she worked in the war effort for Firestone Tire Company in Des Moines, Iowa. On March 2, 1946 she was married to Edward J. CARR, after his return from the service in the European Theater, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Maloy, Iowa. The two resided in Mount Ayr, Iowa, where Edward was a partner in the CARR Chevrolet Company. Edward died November 22, 1959.

In Mount Ayr, Marian was active in many community activities, including Chapter CK of the PEO Sisterhood, St. Joseph's Catholic Church, the Ringgold Singers and the Mount Ayr Golf and Country Club. She was a leader in the effort to fund and develop Judge Lewis Park and its swimming pool.

On January 31, 1970, Marian married Judge James E. HUGHES of Lenox, Iowa. The two resided in Lenox. There, she was active in Chapter FW of the PEO Sisterhood, St. Patrick's Catholic Church, and the Lenox Golf Club. James died December 5, 1995.

In addition to her church, family and community, Marian's interests included reading, current events, music, bridge, corresponding with her family and many friends, and the game of golf. Her genuine interest in the lives of others and her keen memory for people and their milestones made her an authoritative source for near and remote family historians and for people needing to settle a bet.

Marian was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, two brothers, F. B. ("Bill") MALOY, Jr., a war casualty in the Pacific Theater, and Jack MALOY, who died in infancy, and two step-daughters, Kathy AZINGER and Jeanne BUSH. Left to cherish her memory are her three sons, Patrick CARR, his wife Susan and their sons, Edward and David, of West Okoboji, Iowa, Michael, his wife Nancy, and their daughters, Alexandra, Samantha, and Adrienne, of Chanhassen, Minnesota, and Joseph, his wife Vicki, and their children, Katelyn and Matthew, of Fairfield, Iowa. Also, her two step-daughters, Mary WALTER, Lenox, and her four daughters, Suzi BONNETT, Joni HABEL, Debbie LARSON, and Carrie WALTER; and Peggy TRIPP, Kent, Iowa, and her husband, David, and their children, Mandy LOBBINS, Sarah, Jacob and Charles TRIPP; two step-sons in law, Michael AZINGER, and his children, Chris and Josh AZINGER; and Phillip BUSH, his wife Vicki, and his children, Steve, Linda and Mike BUSH, and eleven step-great grandchildren. Also, her cousin, Kathleen FREED of Redding, her sister-in-law, Ila HOLMES of West Des Moines, her good friend, Linda NOTZ of Lenox, and many other relatives and friends.

Marian's quick, warm smile, abiding faith and generous spirit will be missed by all who knew her.
