Patricia L. Hutchison was born on February 19, 1942 in Seattle, Washington to Violet and Peter Nardelli. Washington was where she met the love of her life David Hutchison. They were married for 64 years. They spent most of those years in Oakdale, California. She was a loving, devoted mother to four wonderful daughters Debbie Butler (Chris), Dalona Kline (Tim), Diana Hutchison, and Dalene Davis (Jason). She adored her 10 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
She owned and operated Oakdale Diesel Service for over 50 years with her husband until they retired. She used that business as a platform to help people in need and to share her love for Jesus by giving away bibles. At any given moment there is a full homemade spaghetti dinner in her refrigerator for anyone who is hungry. The first thing she asked anyone who came through her front door was, “Are you hungry?” Her great-grandchildren lovingly refer to her as Spaghetti Grandma and that is something that made her proud. Her generosity was unmatched. She had an amazing inner sparkle and witty sense of humor. She lived life with gratitude and often commented on what a blessed life she lived. She went to be with Jesus on November 2, 2022 at home surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Peter D. Nardelli. The memorial service will be private for family only.
