Mrs. Hutchinson was dearly loved by her surviving children: Rose Newman (Archie), Leesburg, GA; Donna Hobby (Ricky), Tifton, GA; Jill Johnson (Johnny), Albany, GA; her grandchildren: Monica Hardin (Andy), Wilmore, KY; Matthew Hobby (Sarah), Tifton, GA; Caleb Johnson (Jennifer), Rincon, GA; Kelly McBride (Tommy), Hendersonville, TN; Joye Ellis, Tifton, GA; and great- grandchildren: Hannah, Leah, Drew, and Bo Hardin; Smith and Reese Hobby; Brianna and Chloe Johnson, Londyn, Eli, Lola, and Sam McBride.
Mrs. Hutchinson was the beloved “matriarch” of her family. She enjoyed planning gatherings for them, particularly holidays and their annual vacation trip of 57 years to Lake Weir. Her fifteen great-grandchildren lovingly called her “Ma” which always brought her delight. All would agree, “Her children arise and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 31:28.
Mrs. Hutchinson was a faithful member of Northside Baptist Church where she taught 4th grade Sunday School for over 50 years. Many children heard the plan of salvation from her lips. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren look forward to carrying forth her legacy.
