Obituary for Judy RaNae Hatch Hutchings
Judy RaNae Hatch Hutchings was born December 29, 1949 in Ogden, Utah and died of metastatic breast cancer on October 31, 2017 at her home in Provo surrounded by her loving family. She was adopted at 18 months by Bill and Clela Chivers Hatch of Heber. Judy grew up in Heber until 1964 when the family moved to Provo.
She graduated from Provo High School in 1968 and went on to get her LPN at the Trade Tech in Provo. She used this education to comfort family, friends and strangers her entire life. She was a faithful member and served in many callings in the LDS Church.
Judy and Craig L. Hutchings were married for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on March 30, 1973. They then moved to Vernal and lived there for several years.
Judy worked as a nurse at facilities in the Vernal area and in Utah County. She later worked as a nurse and education aide in elementary schools in Provo. Judy and Craig took in foster children and that’s how they met their daughter Nickie LuElla in 1976.
Judy loved all outdoor activities with her family and friends. Her greatest joy was her family, especially her three grandchildren.
