Susan touched so many lives and will be missed by so many. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at the Regatta Banquet Center located at 28 Levesque Drive in Eliot, ME from 1-4 pm. Please visit to sign Susan‘s guestbook and leave memories and condolences for the family. Dover, NH - Susan Ann Hutchins, age 72, of Kittery, ME passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 2, 2021 surrounded by her loving family at the Hyder Family Hospice House in Dover, NH, following a tough battle of Mantle Cell Lymphoma.

She was born on April 24, 1949 in West Hartford, CT to William and Louise Moran. She grew up in Meriden, CT where she attended Ben Franklin Elementary, Lincoln Jr High, and graduated from Orville H. Platt High School.

Susan was a lifelong school bus driver of 35 + years. She treated all of the kids on her bus like they were her own and knew all of them by name. She drove for many schools over the years, but York ME was her last and also her favorite. Susan’s favorite part of bus driving was all the field trips and sporting events that she got to attend. She loved watching all the kids play and she was their biggest fan. She also loved being a lunch lady for several years at York High School. She was also a member of the Red Hat Society and loved their many laughs together.

Susan was widowed by her husband of 50 years, Ronald Hutchins, in 2018. Susan was a dedicated mother of four children. Susan’s favorite role in life was being a Nana and she was lucky enough to have nine grandchildren to spoil. She spent as much time as possible with them and loved to travel and make memories with them constantly. She was loved and will truly be missed by her family, friends or anyone who was lucky enough to have known her.

Susan is survived by her four children: her daughter Tracy Buffington of Somersworth NH and father of her grandchildren Terre Buffington of Florida; her son Erin Hutchins and wife Nancy of Stratham NH; daughter Rebecca Siraco and husband Ronald Jr. of Eliot ME; son Christopher Hutchins and wife Melynda of Somersworth NH. She is also survived by her nine grandchildren: Tyler and Samantha Buffington; Erik and Ryan Hutchins; Josef, Danielle and Juliana Siraco; Harper and Charlie Hutchins. She was predeceased by her parents and granddaughter Tabitha Leann Buffington.

SUE was the sister I never had! Sue and I shared many posts and messages with each other 10 times a day, and phone calls and cards/letters. We had so much in common. I don't get out of the house almost at all and Sue used to take me along on all her trips with pictures. That was just the way she was. She was always so full of love for family and friends. She was always a strong, determined and optimistic person. I loved Sue and miss her greatly. A person with a generous heart that cannot be replaced. SUE, you are missed!

I will miss and do miss Susan dearly. She truly has the heart of an angel. She was a rare human being who touched my heart in many ways that has left an immeasurable impact on my life.
It was a gift to get to know her. She was always ready and willing to reach out to help others selflessly with genuine love and warmth.

To Sue's Family,
I knew Sue from the York Schools. I worked there for 30 years and had traffic duty on a daily basis. Her face was one of those that always had a smile on it when it came up the driveway to drop kids at school or when it was exiting to take kids home. Sue was a most enjoyable person to chat with. I can only imagine how wonderful it was for you all to have her in your lives. I can tell from the wonderful written tribute to her that you will have lots of memories to keep Sue in your hearts and home. My deepest condolences on your loss.

How do you fit 50+ years of friendship and memories in a few lines in a guest book? How about chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast on a Sunday morning on Fairfax Ave? Or being amazed at her dad's craftsmanship in the "room" that he built for Susan that took up an entire floor of the Moran homestead! Maybe it was the first ride taken in her brand new Mustang convertible that her parents purchased for her. No, it had to be when we were crammed in the JP's office to witness your parent's nuptials. Plus, who can forget the texts, talks and visits over the years?!

Next, it was when you kids came along. Tracy scampering about the house in Norwich. Then came the births of Erin, Rebecca and Christopher.

One thing is certain - you "kids" and grands were and continue to be your mom's pride and joy. Her memory will be honored through continuing the traditions and keeping a close family bond that meant so much to her. Her strength will live on in each of you.

May Susan rest in peace and have a special part of all of us who knew and loved her.

My deepest sympathy to Becca and all of Sue's family on their great loss. She cherished time with family, especially with her grandchildren.
I am grateful for my time with her personally two years ago when Bob & I came from PA to Maine and had a wonderful, memorable lunch with Sue. Over the past two years, she sent me many thank you notes for being her friend. She fought a brave battle right up to the end. May many wonderful memories together as a family bring you comfort and peace. I send her my love.

We are very sad to hear this news. Sue was the school bus driver for our kids when they were young. I remember often she would have one of her grand kids seated behind her on the bus. She was very personable and friendly and cared alot about the kids. She would decorate the bus and give out treats on special occassions. When my kids were older, they lucked out again having her as their track bus driver for all those years. We enjoyed speaking with her at the meets which she truly enjoyed watching. The York school system was very fortunate to have had her all these years.

I ran track for my 4 years of high school. Sue drove us up and back from every track meet. She would come watch all our meets and ask us how we did. I remember after every meet she had some type of treat for us that we passed around the bus, you were lucky if you got on Sue’s bus. She was incredibly thoughtful. Sue would always drive the late bus after winter track meets so us kids could stop for food on the way back. She was a big part of track, everyone knew Sue and was so grateful for her. She was a someone you knew really cared about us.

First met Sue while Kittery had no power, she came over and offered her kitchen for cooking a meal, and her bathroom for a hot shower. We had many conversations, over the fence, in her backyard, and texting of course. I shall miss her, such a dear lady. See you down the road M'Lady. To the family, so sorry for the loss of your mother/nana.
