HUTCHINGS, Theresa Anne
February 6, 1961 – June 26, 2016
Theresa Anne Hutchings of Erin, ON passed away peacefully, surrounded by family at the age of 55 at Bethel House Hospice in Inglewood after a particularly long and difficult battle with ovarian cancer.
Theresa was the eldest of 3 children born to Mary and Murray Hutchings. Her first love was her dogs, which she enjoyed breeding and showing. Her incredible strength, determination and perseverance was such an inspiration to all those who’s path she crossed in her life. Her sense of humor and her willpower is what carried her through her long and challenging illness with ovarian cancer. She refused to give into her disease, right up to her last day.
Theresa is survived by her Mom Mary, siblings Elaine, Joanne (Rob) & David (Tracy) along with nieces, nephews and her great nephew. She is predeceased by her Dad Robert Murray Hutchings, her Grandparents, and her pet dogs Leo and Oliver.
Our family wishes to extend our enormous thanks to Dr. Stephen Reingold and Dr. Michael Gagnon for the utmost level of care you provided to Theresa, with a special thank you to Dr. Gagnon for arranging a special day to a Blue Jays game – we will hold the memory of that day close to our hearts forever. We would like to thank the nursing staff, PSW’s and volunteers for the amazing, loving and compassionate care Theresa received at Bethel House Hospice.
