Obituary for Brittany Leigh Hughes

They say that life is the small dash between your beginning date and your ending date. On Sunday, June 23, 2024, the family of Brittany Leigh Hughes got news that no family wants to hear. Her life was over. Her family, unexpectedly, had her ending date. At approximately 7 pm, Brittany, by grace through faith in Jesus, was absent from her body and present with her Lord. But, oh, what a dash she lived!

Brittany was born October 22, 1987, in Alexandria, LA to Eddie and Stacy Hughes. She graduated from Hornbeck High School in 2006 and later earned a nursing degree from Lamar Salter. For the past 13 years, she worked in a variety of healthcare facilities.

To Brittany, the most important part of her “dash” were her children. Despite the challenges she may have faced as a single mother, Brittany always prioritized her children's happiness, well-being, and dreams, by demonstrating incredible strength and resilience. Her fierce love, unwavering dedication to her children and outspokenness defined her life. No one in Brittany’s life ever had to wonder what she was thinking, and she was loved for that! She was extremely loyal, strong-willed and determined. The reason that she lived such an extraordinary life is because she had placed her faith in Jesus Christ at a young age during a GA Lock In at First Baptist Church of Hornbeck. To all of us being emotional over her life being cut short, she would say a line she was famous for: “suck it up, Buttercup.” She would want us to cheer as loudly for her kids and all those she helped coach as loudly as she did, to love them as hard as she did, and to use our own “dash” to believe in others as much as she did.

Left to cherish her memory are her children Kayden Mitchell Hughes, Lynleigh Grace Stracener, Skylynn Marie Stracener and Harlynn James Stracener; Parents Stacy Austin (Alan) & Eddie Hughes (Jennifer); brothers Logan Hughes (Alex), Mark Jones, Christopher Austin (Christina), Cody Austin and sister Taylor Hebert (Brandon); Maternal Grandmother Linda Cole, Bonus Grandmother Connie Spears & God Grandmother Betty Brown; along with a host of extended family members & friends.

She was preceded in death by her brothers, Jason and Eddie Hughes, Paternal Grandparents FM & Melba Chance Hughes, Maternal Grandfather Steve Cole & Bonus Grandfather Donald Spears.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at Hornbeck First Baptist Church at 11:00 a.m. with Bro. Jason Lupo, Bro. Wayne Chance and Bro. Paul Dowden officiating. A burial will follow in Prewitt’s Chapel Cemetery.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2024, from 8:00-11:00 a.m. at Hornbeck First Baptist Church.

Serving as pall bearers will be Logan Hughes, Mark Jones, Christopher Austin, Cody Austin, Tryon Williams, Austin Williams, Jason Reeks and Donnie Spears. Honorary Pallbearer: Harley Stracener.

In lieu of flowers, Brittany’s family asks that you consider giving to an account that has been set up in her memory at Merchants and Farmers Bank. This account will be for her children and not for funeral expenses. If you choose to donate, please make checks payable to Brittany Hughes Memorial Fund and notate on the face of the check “account ending 7433.” Those funds may also be mailed to Merchants and Farmers Bank, PO Box 1151, Leesville, LA. 71496.
