January 16, 1918 – March 11, 2013

Carol Bartle Hughes, a long-time resident of Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills, died on March 11, 2013 at The Terraces of Los Altos at the age of 95. Born in San Francisco in 1918, she attended and graduated from Palo Alto High School and Stanford University with a B. A. and M. A. in Education. She retired as a teacher in the Fremont Unified School District after teaching for 26 years. She was married to Peter Hughes for 43 years until his death in 1996. Carol was an avid traveler and writer and visited many countries over the years, while Peter, a professional photographer, amassed many albums of their travels. She liked to write stories for the local papers and was very proud when they were published.

A private service was held at Alta Mesa Cemetery in Palo Alto.
