TUSCOLA: Earlene Hutto, 85, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday, November 18, 2015. A celebration of her life and a visitation with her family and friends will be held on Friday, November 20, 2015 from 5-7pm at Fry-Smith Funeral Home in Tuscola.
She entered this world on November 13, 1930 in Big Springs, TX, born to George and Ivy Lloyd. Earlene earned a Bachelor of Science degree and taught speech pathology for Abilene ISD and San Angelo ISD for 38 years. She founded the "I Love America Day" at Dyess Elementary School in 1982, a tradition that is still ongoing today.
After retirement, she pursued her love of birds by opening a bird sanctuary at Cedar Gap Farm with her husband Homer and son Mark.
Earlene's unconditional love for her family, friends, and the Lord gave her a joyous outlook on life that was contagious to everyone that she came in contact with.
