Gloria Joan Hugo

 

Gloria Joan Hugo, age 77, passed away unexpectedly on February 19, 2023, at the Logan Regional Hospital from acute injuries due to a fall. She was surrounded by family at the time of her passing. She is survived in life by her husband of 58 years Bill Hugo. She is also survived by her 3 boys and their spouses and families; William J. Hugo & Gregory J. Sorensen, Robert L. Hugo & Charri Hugo and Russell N. Hugo as well as two grandchildren and their spouses Colton J Hugo and Anne Marie B. Hugo and Tanner R. Hugo and Hayley M. Hugo.

 

She was born in Portland Oregon and grew up in the area. She graduated high school and began to pursue a career in business at a local community college. As it happens, life gets in the way, and she had her first child which shortly ended a short career in retail and all of those aspirations. She never complained, she loved her life raising her boys and she gave it her all as she did everything she did.

 

Joan was the type of person who could light up a room when she walked in. She had a big heart and a beautiful soul. She was the type of person who would approach a total stranger and offer to help with whatever they may be dealing with. As kids, it used to embarrass us. We were like, “MOM, stop you don’t know them!” and she would of course ignore our childish protestations. Mom was the person who everyone instantly liked. No one disliked our mother. If she felt someone did dislike her, she worked harder to make that person happy. She didn’t have a malicious bone in her body.

 

Mom loved horses from the time she was a child. She always relayed fond memories about her horse Gypsy and about how she and her mother Betty Jean Baldwin would ride. She spent a great deal of time as a child with her grandparents Rollo and Etta Kintz on their farm. That blessing of being around our great grandparents shaped who we are today as it did her. They taught us and her to be responsible, honest and be self-reliant. Those were some of her fondest memories and some of ours.

 

Mom was a terrific singer. She loved singing in church. When she did, she would get so many  compliments.  Singing allowed her to impart joy in others and that was why she did it. She was such a positive person. She loved and strongly believed in her Savior Jesus Christ. She believed she had a duty to get as many sheep into the fold as she could regardless of what those sheep looked like. She led her life by example and was never a person who felt the need to proselytize. As part of her faith, she loved butterflies because to her they were a symbol of rebirth. That meant a lot to her. She believed that one day she would be reunited with her Savior and we have to believe she has.  She was a very religious woman and you dare not take the Lord’s name in vain or use coarse language around her. The weight of her scorn for that behavior was unbearable. She really didn’t have to say anything, she made you know she didn’t approve.

 

Mom was the type of person we all should strive to be. Caring, sensitive, honest to a fault, loving and kind. The world is at a loss with her sudden passing. There is one less gentle soul that looks out for all the others around her. We know in our hearts that just as she always did, she will be looking out for us and all those around us. If you knew her, consider yourself lucky and blessed because I promise you, she prayed for you and loved you.
