Rebecca Ann Hutchings

Sandy, Utah - It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Becky Hutchings, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, who left us on Thursday, June 27, at the age of 70. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her.

Becky was born on August 5, 1953, in Murray, Utah, to Frank and Shirley White. She grew up in Midvale and attended Hillcrest High School, where she met her eternal companion, Jeff. After high school, Becky attended Weber State University. After college, Becky and Jeff married and moved to Salt Lake while Jeff was attending the University of Utah. For most of her adult life, she was a stay-at-home mom, lovingly blessing the lives of her six children. As her kids grew older, she decided to go back to work for the Jordan School District in the Food Services department. Over her 30-year career, she held many positions. Mom was a perfectionist when it came to food and cleanliness. You were sure to get a delicious meal from a clean kitchen if you attended any of the schools she worked for. She eventually retired in June of 2023.

Mom was many things to her husband, children, and grandchildren, but most importantly, she was their constant spiritual compass. Her faith and love of the Savior never wavered. She always took the opportunity to share her testimony with her family. She loved the gospel and, most importantly, serving in the Temple. She held various callings within the church, blessing many lives with her genuine love and concern. Many times, she spoke of the next life, not in sadness or uncertainty, but with excitement to reunite with loved ones who left this earth before her. She was especially excited to hug her youngest son, Braden, again. Mom lived her life as a perfect disciple and daughter of our Heavenly Father. Thank you, Mom, for your example.

Mom was famous for her rolls and bread. She loved to make dinner for her whole family and would purposely make extra rolls to ensure each family had a bag or two to take home. In the eyes of her family, she was the best cook around. It was intimidating for her soon-to-be daughters-in-law once they experienced one of her “dinners” and learned that, when her kids were growing up, she would make a large dinner almost every night of the week. The pressure those poor daughters-in-law must have felt to continue this tradition that her boys had grown accustomed to was immense. Mom rarely followed a recipe, which was extremely frustrating to her children and daughters-in-law when they would call and ask for the recipe to one of her famous dishes. She had the recipes memorized with her own version of the details and measurements. She would just say, “a little of this and a little more of that.” When asked exactly how much that was, she would reply, “I don’t know.” Because of this, most attempts to duplicate her masterpieces usually ended in disappointment. 

Mom loved to sew and make crafts with her dear friend Sue. She always claimed she didn’t have any talents, but her family knew otherwise. She gifted many of her creations to them, and these will be displayed and cherished forever. She also enjoyed hosting game nights with her close friends and family. However, her greatest joy was simply spending time with her family. She loved them all fiercely.

Becky is survived by her loving husband, Jeff Hutchings; her children, Brandon and Jaime Hutchings, Jared and Bridget Hutchings, Cameron and Kristy Hutchings, Haley and Matt McCaig, Ambrey Hutchings, and Maria (Robert Blotter) Hutchings; her grandchildren, Cade (Kylee) Hutchings, Chase (Mykelle) Hutchings, Kyler Hutchings, Karson Hutchings, Savanna Hutchings, Luke Hutchings, Hudson Hutchings, Dylan Maynard, Jett (Zoe) Maynard, Chandler Rassavong, Taylor Rassavong, Ethan McCaig, Hailie Maya Hutchings, Braden Hutchings, Melanie Blotter, and Isabella Blotter; and a great-granddaughter, Oakley Hutchings. Sisters Brenda Christensen and Sherry Carlsen. She was preceded in death by her youngest child, Braden; parents, Norm and Shirley (White) Carlsen; brothers, Frank White and Greg White; and father and mother-in-law, Calvin and Margaret Hutchings.

Funeral services will be held in the LDS ward house located at 10375 Leilani Dr, Sandy, UT, on Wednesday, July 3, 2024. The viewing will be held from 9:00 AM to 10:45 AM, followed by a memorial service at 11:00 AM. Interment will take place at Memorial Cemetery, West Jordan, UT.
