Obituary for \r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Ella Ruth Hughes\n\n\r\n\t\t\t\tElla Ruth Hughes, 14, of Provo passed away at her home on November 16, 2017. \n\nElla was born on August 30, 2003 at Orem Community Hospital. She was a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, church member, student and friend. Ella was known for her ability to help others feel special and seen, and it was common for her to break apart from the crowd to attend to the one. She volunteered weekly at Jamestown Assisted Living and was an active participant in her LDS ward. She served in her ward’s Beehive Presidency and enjoyed working with her peers. \n\nAn “A” student, Ella worked diligently at her studies. She had many talents including acting, drawing and singing, but above all, Ella was a prolific and assiduous writer. She planned to pursue a writing career by attending the University of Iowa. Ella loved to read, eat chocolate, walk in the rain, plan parties, attend the theater, laugh and dream. During her short life she made a tremendous impact and made the world a kinder, more beautiful place. She was a bright star of hope and joy. \n\nElla is survived by her parents, Daniel and Christy, and her brothers, Christopher (6) and Michael (4), grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, teachers and many friends. \n\nElla, we are honored to have had you in our lives. We love you forever and always. \n\nFuneral services will be held on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 1:00pm at the LDS Edgemont South Stake Building, 350 E 2950 N, Provo, Utah. Burial will be in the Orem City Cemetery.
