Doris M. Hughes, 92 of Monongahela, formerly of Donora, passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at her home. 

She was born May 11, 1928 in Donora, a daughter of the late Dominic and Virginia Zenobi Forlini. 

She was Catholic by faith and a member of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish and was active in the Christian Mothers and Women's Guild and the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary.  Doris volunteered faithfully every week at the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Monessen and at the Donora Meals on Wheels.   

She worked as a seamstress for 40 years, most recently at the Donora Sportswear. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John B. Hughes on August 23, 2004; and one brother, Dino Forlini. 

Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Donna Simmen and husband Oscar of Monongahela with whom she made her home; two grandsons, David (Jamie) Simmen of Westminster, MD and Daniel Simmen of West Mifflin; three great-grandchildren, Carter, Madison, and Kennedy; one sister, Mary Kuma of Pittsburgh; one sister in-law, Helen Forlini of Ohio; and several nieces and nephews. 

At the request of Doris, visitation will be private. Friends and relatives are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 12 p.m. at the Donora Campus of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish.  Private entombment will take place at Mon Valley Memorial Park, Donora. 

The family would like to thank Amedisys Hospice for the loving care that they provided for our mother.  

Arrangements have been entrusted to the ANTHONY L. MASSAFRA FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICE INC., 40 Second Street Extension, Carroll Township/Donora, PA 15033, (724) 379-6900.
