McHENRY – JoAnn E. Hutchinson, 80, of McHenry, passed away Friday, June 15, 2012, at the Hospice of Northeastern Illinois Pepper Family Hospice Home in Barrington, surrounded by her loving family.|
She was born Feb. 29, 1932, in Chicago to Leon and Martha (Broske) Macey. On Sept. 18, 1954, she married William E. Hutchinson at Our Lady of Grace in Chicago.
JoAnn was the beloved wife of William Hutchinson for 57 years, a loving and devoted mother and grandmother who loved to travel, work in her garden, spend time at their summer home and be with her grandchildren and friends.
