Her mother, who was half-Cherokee, was said to be able to read the future using coffee grounds and the family claimed Cherokee Indian and Scotch-Irish ancestry. She worked in a hospital in New Orleans and married William Hughes in 1945. Hughes moved to Chicago and began to gain national and international attention for her uncanny predictions after she became a favorite television guest on Merv Griffin's talk show. Soon, her abilities to predict future events garnered her waiting-list clients, including actress Eva Gabor and eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. Irene Hughes told The Times in 2010 she had correctly predicted to Howard Hughes his 1976 death. Her most famous predictions made headlines around the world, including her foretelling of "the Blizzard of 1967" and the deaths of both President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy. In 1962, she predicted the exact date of death of former Illinois governor Adlai Stevenson, which came to happen in 1965. She also predicted the automobile accident involving Ted Kennedy. She said she repeated the prediction to Kennedy when she met him in the Senate dining room in Washington, D.C. She warned he would be involved in an accident near water, his companion would die, but that he would be uninjured. Two weeks later, on July 19, 1969, Kennedy drove his car off a bridge and companion Mary Jo Kopechne was killed. He was not injured. ( On line article about the author)
