Elizabeth C. McHugh

Elizabeth C. McHugh, 36, formerly of Mashpee, died unexpectedly at her home in Boston on November 20, 2019. She was the daughter of James McHugh III, of Duxbury and Robin Barros, of Pennsylvania.

Elizabeth was hilarious, she had a contagious laugh and everlasting energy. She always had an opinion, never stopped talking, and could always find the fun in the most mundane of activities. She truly loved life.  She was an animal lover, of all kinds, especially black ducks, always willing to pick up a creepy crawling new friend to show the kids. She was a sucker for conspiracy theories, magic, mystery, aliens, and anything to do with the paranormal. She will be remembered as a gifted artist, beautiful singer, and a vibrant ball of energy that will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Elizabeth is survived by her loving aunt who was always more of her mother and her biggest support, Patty Alonso; her siblings Robert Alonso, of Falmouth, Alexandra Dellea and her husband Matt of Westfield, and Stephanie Alonso, of Mashpee; her grandmother Mary McHugh of Dennis; despite her struggles, Elizabeth recognized how lucky she was to have such wonderful people in all her children’s lives including her children’s fathers Nelson Lima, of Springfield, IL, and Franklyn McLaughlin and partner Christine Leoncello, of Weymouth, Julio DeAraujo, of Brazil, as well as Josie’s loving parents; and most importantly her beautiful children Nelson Lima, Elissa Lima, Julian DeAraujo, Josie, and Charlie McLaughlin. She was predeceased by her grampy and best friend James McHugh, Jr.

Visiting hours will be from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, 74 Algonquin Ave. (off Route 151), Mashpee.  A funeral home service will take place at 2:00 pm.
