HUTCHINSON, Clover Lee “Indy”, age 80, went home to be with the Lord Monday, October 8, 2018. She was born April 30, 1938 in Macon County, Alabama, the youngest of twelve children. She relocated to Dayton, Ohio with her mother when she was sixteen years old. She attended Roosevelt High School in Dayton. She met the man of her dreams, Rayfield Hutchinson and married him in 1958. Out of their union came eight beautiful children, four girls and four boys. For a short while, she worked as a Teacher’s Aide for Dayton Public Schools, a Seamstress at Sears and a Housekeeper at Sheraton Hotels.
Her most fulfilling times, was being a wife and a homemaker. Her greatest passion was her family. She really enjoyed spending lots of time with them. There was never a dull moment in her house. She was a member of Salem Missionary Baptist Church where she attended faithfully until her health began to fail her. Her husband was also a committed member and deacon. Clover loved to worship. She was always singing and humming as she worked and cooked. Cooking was her second greatest passion. One of her sayings was “food shouldn’t be so good.” It’s also evident that she loved to eat!
