She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack H. Hutchins Sr.; and son, Jack H. Hutchins Jr. Mrs. Hutchins was a longtime member of Ivey Memorial United Methodist Church and was the Cafeteria Manager for Chesterfield County Food Services for 27 years. She enjoyed painting color over old black and white photos, and she baked cakes for weddings and parties for over 20 years. She was especially famous for her seven-day coconut cake. She loved animals and flowers, but above all she loved her family and she cherished the time she spent with them. She is survived by her daughters, Michele Woods and Diana Thacker (Robert); grandchildren, Jay Hutchins, Duke Hutchins, Austin Woods, Ashton Woods, and Jacqui Williamson; and four great-grandchildren. Due to the recent spread of Coronavirus the family has decided to cancel the public graveside service. A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.
