Mary Stewart Gloyd Hutchinson died Tuesday May 2, 2017

Born November 24, 1927 to Frank Stewart Gloyd and Evadna Vesta Gove Gloyd in Seattle, WA. Mary's first seven years were spent in the Seattle area. The family moved to Oakland, CA in 1935 and spent three years there while the "bridges" were being built.

The family returned to their home in the north end of Seattle in 1938. Mary was a graduate of Roosevelt High School (1945) and Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA (1949), a political science major.

Mary's first job after graduation from high school was with the War Shipping Administration. "V-J Day" (the end of World War II) came during a working day, and most of those working in downtown Seattle had quite an interesting time getting home from work that day because of all the celebrating.

During her college years, the summers were spent taking secretarial courses, and all of her jobs were clerical or secretarial in nature. During her employment with the Boeing Company from 1986 to 1995, she became a Certified Professional Secretary, and, after retiring, completed her Paralegal Certificate as an "insurance policy"

In 1957, both Herbert (Bert) Bruce Hutchinson's and Mary's spouses died. Bert and Mary met the following March, he with two girls, aged one and three, and she with two boys, aged six and eight. "A marriage made in Heaven" said Mother Gloyd.

Mary's recreational diversion through the years was golf, from the time she was a teenager until her death.

Surviving are her children James Stewart Hutchinson and wife, Irene; David Lee Hutchinson and wife, Robyn; Susan Marie Lamoree and husband, Guy; and Cynthia Diane Hutchinson and husband, Patrick Iverson, six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren; Brother Dr. Park Gloyd and wife, Shirley; and sister Barbara Gloyd Smith and husband, Packard Phillips.
