Jean Mchugh

May 17, 1935 — May 6, 2022

Jean (nee Hanrahan) McHugh passed away on May 6th at Horizon’s Care Center in Eckert, Colorado, just 11 days before her 87th birthday. Jean was born May 17, 1935, in Denver, Colorado to Thomas J and LeeOra (Tuttle) Hanrahan.

Jean and her parents moved to Los Angeles when Jean was just two years old. When Jean's father died suddenly in 1954, the family moved to Cedaredge where Jean met and married Jack McHugh in 1955.

As a young mom with four children, Jean worked to make extra money with seasonal work like packing apples. Once the kids were all in school, she took a job at the First National Bank of Cedaredge. Jean was active in her church and the ESA Sorority. She spent countless hours volunteering at the local rodeo grounds, and loved her bridge games and her friends.

Jean is survived by her three sons: Jerry and John (Adriana) of Cedaredge, and Bob McHugh of Grand Junction, and her daughter JoDee (Mark) Relph of Arvada. She is also survived by four granddaughters: Brandy, Tara, Sierra and Kendall, four great grandchildren, one great great grandchild, and many very loved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack, her parents, Tom and LeeOra, and both of her brothers, Jim and Tom.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to Hope West who provided care and comfort to Jean in her final days.
