Tonia Harris Hughes Obituary

Tonia Harris-Hughes affectionately known as “Terri” of Hyde Park, Massachusetts passed away surrounded by family on February 27, 2024, at the age of 59. Terri was born and raised in Boston, MA graduating from South Boston High School.

Terri spent the majority of her life in the human service field. This was a career she loved and felt passionately about. She spent time working with children and adolescents experiencing severe behavioral issues as well as developmentally delayed adults. You can tell by the work she did throughout her life, the type of character she was. She was strong, kind, caring, loving, loyal and genuine. She was also the first-person rooting for someone's success. Terri made those around her better just by being her.

Most importantly Terri was an amazing mother and Nana. If you asked her, that was her greatest job and her ultimate destiny. If you asked her children and grandchildren, she was the best at it.

Terri enjoyed making the most of every day. Dancing to every song, counting down until her favorite holiday (Christmas), spending time with her many friends and family or giving everyone, she met their own special nickname. She loved life and it showed.

Terri is preceded in death by her father Elwood Harris and her mother Dorothy Harris. She leaves behind her beautiful children Andre L. Hughes, LaTonia M. Daigle (David), Terrence K. Harris-Hughes, stepdaughter Christina R. Emile (Robert). Grandchildren Isabella L. Gomes, Cameron D. Daigle and Jaxon B. Daigle. Siblings Edward Harris, Tiffany Wiggins (Christopher), Timothy Moss, Christopher, Jaundoo, God sister Jeanette Credle-Veal, and a host of other relatives and friends
