Mary Elizabeth Lowe Hutchison
Mary Elizabeth Lowe Hutchison, 99, of Hinton, WV, formerly of Forest Hill, passed away peacefully at MainStreet Care on Wednesday, November 13.
She was born on Feb 18,1920 at Red Sulphur Springs to
the late Dorse B. and Maude Rae Lowe.
In 1945 she married her long-time sweetheart, Jimmie, while he was home on furlough from WWII. They made a wonderful home in Forest Hill, where they lived until 2007.
After graduating from Forest Hill High School in 1937 Mary worked for GC Murphy in Beckley, then at The Kitchen restaurant in Hinton and years later, for a short time, as the cook for Forest Hill School. She was a lifelong member and regular attender of her beloved Forest Hill United Methodist Church.
Mary began her life in a time when horse and buggy was a common means of transportation. She lived through the Great Depression and a World War; witnessed the rise of the automobile and the birth of the internet. Through it all, Mary remained the same gentle and loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
She spent her life in service to God, family and community. She always had a smile and was known for her tender care of others in ways such as sewing, giving haircuts and a willingness to lend a helping hand. She was a wonderful cook who also enjoyed gardening, canning and quilting.
Mary has now reunited with many loved ones in Heaven including her mother and father; her husband of 64 years, Jimmie; three brothers, Donald, Tom and Bob; an infant grandson Derrick Patterson, and a great-granddaughter Addison Hutchison.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children Tom (Mona) Hutchison, Jeanne (Ron) Patterson and Jayme Davis; her grandchildren, Shane (Shelley) Hutchison, Amber (Cassie) Patterson, Brad Hutchison, Wesley (Savanna) Patterson, Courtney (Myles) Cook and Brent Davis and one Great-grandson, Porter Hutchison; several nieces and nephews; her at-home caregivers and the wonderful staff of MainStreet Care, who became a second family to her.
Visitation will be held on Friday November 15th, 2019 from 12-2 pm at the Forest Hill United Methodist Church; funeral at 2 pm, Pastor Jim Wentz officiating. Interment will take place at the church cemetery immediately following the service.
Grandsons and family friends will serve as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers are the men of the Forest Hill United Methodist Church.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Forest Hill United Methodist Church or Hospice of Southern WV (PO Box 1472, Beckley WV 25801).
