Faith M. Hume


Kingston, NH - It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved mother Faith M. Hume. She passed away peacefully at her home on November 19, 2018, surrounded by her loving family as she had wished. Faith was born on February 24, 1939, the daughter of the late Albina and William McLaughlin.
She grew up in Cambridge and was a graduate of both the Putman School and Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School. She graduated from the Cambridge City Hospital School of Nursing in 1959. She enjoyed a fifty-year nursing career which included working in hospitals and nursing homes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Faith moved to Kingston in 1970 with her husband and children. She was very intelligent, a keen observer, and had incredible insight into what other people needed even before they realized it. She was never too busy to listen. Faith was always positive and found the goodness in everyone she met.

She is survived by her daughter, Ellen Hume-Howard and her husband Christopher, son, James, daughters, Lesley-Ann and Christine, son David and his wife Melissa and son Paul.
