Joan Kathleen Hutcheson died July 31, 2014, at the age of 81 years. She was born Joan Kathleen Fox in Dec. 29, 1932, to John and Kathleen Fox in Aylsham, Norfolk, England. She grew up in the pastoral countryside of East Anglia where she attended Underwood Business College. After graduating, she worked for a life insurance company for five years during which she met her future husband, Bobby Hutcheson, an Air Force officer stationed in England. After his return to America, Joan emigrated in 1953 and they were married in Riverside, California. They spent the next 20 years in the military stationed in various bases throughout the United States. Along the way, they had three children - Rhoda, Michael and Bobby. She was preceded in death by her husband in 1982. Years later, she would meet the love of her life, Lloyd Sanders. They would spend the next 22 years together enjoying the Texas Hill Country, where they built a house in Kingsland, Texas. He came from a large family of nephews and nieces aunts and uncles. She, being an only child, relished the life of having a large family. Many years were spent basking on the waters of Lake LBJ, at family get-togethers on every occasion (especially the Fourth of July) and spending time traveling for his work, fishing with him on the lake or just taking sunset cruises in their boat. When he took ill in 2013 she was by his side every moment until his death earlier this year. Hutcheson is also preceded in death by her parents, John and Kathleen Fox; her husband, Bob Hutcheson, and her son, Michael Hutcheson. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
