Florence Hutchison ( Née Auby )

December 14, 1924June 24, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we say goodbye to our loving and much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother at the age of 95.

She lived a full life and her life was her family. She loved travelling, especially visiting her East Coast relatives; the quietness of living in the country at her trailer; family get-togethers; shopping - she could out shop most of us!; praying her rosary; visits and calls from family and friends.

She was predeceased by her loving husband, Henry and her grandson, Stephen. She will be greatly missed by her children: Helen Paquette (Don), Shirley Samojlenko (Ugor), Pauline Lamothe (Roger), Jim Hutchison (Moira), Teresa Young (Rocky), Anne Daley (Lynn), Dorothy Young (Danny), Ed Hutchison (Diane) and Judy Cruise (Leigh). Her 27 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren will miss her dearly.

A private family visitation will be held at McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home.

Funeral mass to be held at Saint Peter's Catholic Church, 1640 Heatherington Road, Ottawa on Saturday at noon.

Interment St. Mary's Cemetery, 1260 Chemin du Cimetière, Quyon, QC J0X 2V0 at 2 pm

Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Billingswood Manor for the excellent, compassionate care they provided Mom during her stay there, especially during these past difficult days. Mom only had praise for them and the quality of care she received.

The family is also very grateful for the diligence of the manager in keeping the residence free of the Covid 19 virus. In memoriam donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Our sincere condolences to your family. The world has lost a fine woman who led a long and fruitful life as the "matriarch" of her generation. I know my mother admired her as a strong woman and steadfast sister-in-law, as well as a kind and considerate friend, remembering many happy times together over the years. We younger ones also will remember her as a kindly Aunt, who was a calm and welcoming relative at family gatherings, always ready to chat, while quietly make sure everyone was included in the fun. She will be missed. XO

I will always remember when Aunt Florence & Uncle Henry would visit us at our Parents Cottage on the Montague River in PEI. My Mother had so much fun when her Sister came to visit. Singing, guitar & ukelele playing along with awesome seafood suppers. You couldn't have a better time anywhere, because the love was all around us. Never a dull moment, that's for sure. I will cherish these fond memories forever. God bless you Aunt Flo. You always made everyone smile & feel welcome whenever you were around.
