Joe Ann Hutchinson

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies….The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil…..She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life…..Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her….

Joe Ann (Chandler) Hutchinson died peacefully at home on Saturday, December 17, 2022. She was 85 years old. Joe Ann was preceded in death by the love of her life, Merion Curtis (Hutch) Hutchinson to whom she was married 68 years. She was also preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Clytie Chandler, her siblings, Ruth Allmand and Billy Chandler. She was a lifelong resident of Central and drove a school bus here until her retirement.

She leaves to cherish her memory; her children Steven Hutchinson (Betty Hampton), Bradley Hutchinson (Caroline), and Lea Ann Carollo (Marvin); her grandchildren, Jordan Mentzer (Anna), Stephanie Gravois (Matt), Adam Hutchinson (Tessi), and Evan Hutchinson (Erica); her great-grandchildren, Ella, Molly, and Jordan Curtis Mentzer; Peyton, Lorelei, and Savannah Gravois, Mia, Hayes, and Bree Martin, and Emery and Ezra Hutchinson. She is also survived by her sister, Dorothy Shaffer, a brother-in-law L.C. Allmand, and a sister-in-law, Alice Chandler, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Her pallbearers will be her grandsons listed above along with Matt Gravois, Kyle Mitchell and Casey Miller.
